The second edition of this exhibition brings into dialogue poetry and painting, celebrating their rich history of mutual inspiration while mining the inner workings of inspiration itself. “The roots of poetry and painting have always been interwoven.

Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann

November 7 — 30, 2019

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by Artist Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann.… read more

Sherie' Franssen

October 3 — November 2, 2019

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Undertow, an exhibition of recent works by artist Sherié Franssen. Some writers on painting and sculpture can trace their fascination with the subject to an encounter with a specific artwork. My epiphany came when I first saw Willem de Kooning's "Excavation" (1950) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (loaned by the Art Institute of Chicago) in the late 1960s.… read more

Éric Antoine

Useful Lies
September 5 — 28, 2019

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Useful Lies, an exhibition of recent work by the French artist Éric Antoine. Antoine works in series, repeatedly photographing the same subjects while experimenting with light, reflection, and composition. As part of his near-obsessive approach, he typically first creates drawings that allow him to closely consider different nuances and possibilities before making the actual photograph. These quiet and at times somber—but always sublime—images are reservoirs of feeling and symbolism that are usually set in and around his home, located in the forest of northeastern France. He is uninterested, he explains, in finding and documenting the exotic, the strange, or the new. His art is instead an intimate and highly personal project, one that is impossible to separate from his life.… read more

Ann Weber

Happiest Days of Our Lives
July 11 — August 31, 2019

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Ann Weber. In this show, she focuses on large-scale, multiple-component works in her signature medium of found cardboard.… read more

Gonzalo Fuenmayor

May 2 — June 1, 2019

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Empire, an exhibition of new works by Gonzalo Fuenmayor, on view from May 2 to June 1, 2019. Born in Colombia but resident in the United States for most of his adult life, Fuenmayor has cultivated a practice that explores processes of cultural assimilation, colonialization, and exoticization. Empire draws on these past through-lines while also advancing beyond to think through new tensions and, in the process, reconsidering the visual language of his charcoal-on-paper medium.… read more

John DiPaolo

April 4 — 27, 2019

There is no formula, no method, just a compulsion to experiment.... The paintings tell you what they need. The interaction with painting is so primal. It’s the way we relate to the tactile world. —John DiPaolo… read more

Charley Brown

Charley Brown
March 7 — 30, 2019

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is proud to honor and celebrate the work of beloved Bay Area artist Charley Brown. Charley passed away in November 2018 after a long battle with cancer.

This exhibition—his third solo show with Dolby Chadwick Gallery—is a tribute to the man, the artist and his art.… read more

Alex Kanevsky

Fin de Siècle
October 30 — December 1, 2018

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Alex Kanevsky’s new show Fin de Siécle. Kanevsky is adamant that paintings can never be described by words because their language is fundamentally visual and not verbal. To him, paintings are not expressions of pre-conceived notions, ideas, or even thought processes; in fact, he believes that they resist any conceptualization—but what then is Kanevsky’s work about? If it is neither representational nor narrative nor symbolic, what is it that drives his vision?… read more

Matt Gonzalez

Derivations in Color
October 4 — 27, 2018

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is proud to present Matt Gonzalez’s new show Derivations in Color. Gonzalez’s collages are meditations on the nature of equilibrium. They create a balance between the ‘feeling and the syntax of things’ (to quote E.E.Cummings), between our sensuous, emotive experience of the world and the rational interpretation of it. Geometrical lines and figures form highly structured compositions that are so complex and self-contained that they look like living systems. But each of them is also suffused with a sumptuous color that exudes a nearly religious depth and simplicity. Balancing the two, Gonzalez creates an aesthetic equilibrium from which a subtle glow seems to emanate—like bioluminescence from a still, silent sea.… read more

Elizabeth Fox

My Darling Clouds
August 30 — September 29, 2018

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is delighted to present Elizabeth Fox’s My Darling Clouds. Fox’s paintings are siren songs that live in a sphere somewhere between the subconscious and the magical. Her figures are often pale, ghostly, smoke & mirror, more shape than body. The world they move through is one that’s at once mundane—an office, a bus stop, a street with trash cans—and surreal: it’s as if Fox is squeezing the real out of reality, and what’s left is an etherealized version of strange, dream-like beauty.… read more

Chris Cosnowski

Might and Main
August 30 — September 29, 2018

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is delighted to present Chris Cosnowski’s Might and Main. Cosnowski continues his exploration of the conflicted soul of our pop culture. His toys, trophies, models and other Americana transport us into a world that’s both playful and haunting, sacred and silly, minimal and complex. In Might and Main, a phrase from the 12th century meaning with as much effort or strength as one can muster, many of Cosnowski’s figures are raising their fists in a gesture that speaks equally of assertion and desperation. A gesture that perfectly encapsulates our current situation.… read more

Jenifer Kent, Matt R. Phillips, Matthew Scheatzle

In the Aggregate
July 10 — August 25, 2018

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce "In the Aggregate," a group exhibition featuring the art of Jenifer Kent, Matt R. Phillips, and Matthew Scheatzle, on view July 14 to August 25, 2018. Though the three artists create vastly different works, they are united by practices that privilege iteration, fragmentation, and an aesthetic of multiplication, in which component parts unfurl to form a whole.… read more

Edwige Fouvry

June 5 — July 7, 2018

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Entrevoir, an exhibition of new work by Edwige Fouvry, on view from June 9 to July 7. Fouvry’s paintings are exercises in locating order in chaos. She takes the disarray of our shared worlds and daily lives and examines and rearranges it, seeking harmony and coherence without falling prey to overly neat or artificial resolutions. Making deft choices of color, form, and gesture, she sets abstraction against representation, painted against raw canvas, line against wash, dry against dripping brushwork, and loose gestures against tightly rendered eddies of swirling marks. This visual tension, however, is perfectly calibrated, creating a type of pressure that supports rather than wrenches apart. By drawing the eye in and carefully guiding it around a given scene, Fouvry allows the viewer to apprehend relationships, patterns, and moments of beauty that might have otherwise gone unnoticed.… read more
