In the Gallery

2018-19 Exhibition Season

Public Personalities presents a body of compelling traditional and digital photography featuring portraits and street photography. Spanning 40 years across the region, Mr. Bryan explored ways to connect with strangers in order to capture a range of interesting and unconventional people in public places, through both candid and engaging interactions. The results are a series of images that investigate the personalities of our shared humanity.

Cash Bryan has been a professional photographer since 1984 working in several genres including photojournalism, weddings, portraiture, and fine art. Throughout his career Mr. Bryan has remained interested in using the camera as tool to find connectivity between passersby. He began exhibiting professionally in 2010, and Public Personalities is his first solo exhibition.

“I have turned my passion for people to street photography. The work attempts to move beyond the use of photography to capture conventional beauty and the contrived environment, and instead seeks the beauty in the awkward or unusual. These are the pubic personalities of everyday people in their everyday lives.”   – Cash Bryan


As part of the annual Holidays at the Grand programming, a special exhibition of works by artists featured in Art Co-Opted (our curated cooperative in the South Gallery) are presented across the galleries.  Over 30 artists, designers and lenders offer a diverse selection of functional, decorative and fine quality works at very reasonable prices.

Many of these handmade, one-of-kind items are only available for a limited time during this show. Consider unique gifts for your friends and family, or build your own collection this holiday season!



 

Different Directions presents a retrospective honoring over 50 years of work by Delbert Park of Tracy, CA. Mr. Park (b. 1946) is a prolific artist working in a variety of styles and genre including portraiture, landscapes, still life, impressionism, abstraction, and surrealism. His dynamic movement through numerous concepts and technical abilities provides a rare exploration into the union of creative process and life experience.

Delbert Park is the son of ordained ministers who grew up in East Palo Alto, Benicia, Hughson and Patterson. He holds a B.A. from San Jose State University and M.A. from Chico State University. A retired junior high school teacher, Mr. Park has been exhibiting professionally working for over 40 years across the region. Curator, Vicki Park is Del’s wife and creative collaborator.

“I’m sharing work from high school to the present. While my media of choice is oil on canvas, I’ve worked in drawing, pastel, printmaking, wood, glass and metal. Over time my work endeavors have sought to create and convey a mood.”  – Delbert Park
