1805 GALLERY PRESENTS CONVEYOR:AN ELEVATOR EXHIBITION SERIES AT PORTO VISTA HOTEL

2018 FEATURED ARTIST: DANIEL BARRON CORRALES

Conveyor: Daniel Barron Corrales

Artist Reception: Thursday, April 19, 2018, 5-7PM

Location: Porto Vista Hotel, 1835 Columbia Street, San Diego, CA 92101

San Diego, CA - In collaboration with Porto Vista Hotel, 1805 Gallery is thrilled to announce the launch of Conveyor, an exhibition series that takes place inside the elevators at the Porto Vista Hotel in Little Italy, San Diego. Curated by Lauren Siry, select contemporary artists will create art installations that respond to the intimate and often overlooked space. 

Daniel Barron Corrales will be the first featured artist in Conveyor, producing an installation composed of tinted, textured and reflective materials that explore transcendence and infinite space. Corrales will transform the constrained space of an elevator into an ever-expanding portal. In conjunction with Conveyor, the artist will have an exhibition of works on view in the hotel’s gallery located in the Lobby of the Porto Vista Hotel. The Lobby Gallery exhibition will be on view from April 19 through July 29, 2018. An opening artist reception will be held on Thursday, April 19, 2018, from 5-7PM. The art installation in the elevator will be on view through April 2019.  

Daniel Barron Corrales is a San Diego based artist that intuitively responds to the unique nature of environments, heightening the experience of space, light, color, and architectural elements through mixed media interactive sculpture and installations. Composed of mass-produced textiles and everyday construction supplies, Corrales’ work aims to visually engage audiences while renewing their perception of everyday materials and spaces. Corrales has exhibited work at the San Diego Art Institute, Mingei International Museum of Art and Ted X San Diego.

Melissa Walter: San Diego Film Awards

1805 Gallery is pleased to announce that A New Stellar Order, a documentary featuring Melissa Walter's residency project at 1805 Gallery, has been nominated for best documentary short at the San Diego Film Awards.   

While in residence at 1805 Gallery, Melissa Walter a graphic designer and science illustrator for NASA, completed an installation of black threads that burst from points within the pristine white gallery wall fanning out toward the large square window.  The installation explored the concept of dark energy, a hypothetical form of energy that permeates all space and exerts a negative pressure that causes the universe to expand at an ever-increasing rate. Walter’s installation of intersecting and overlapping threads translates the challenging concept of the Universe into a visual and physical experience.

WE SEE YOU, WE'RE LISTENING

RY BELOIN: WE SEE YOU, WE'RE LISTENING

DECEMBER 8, 2017 

While in residence at 1805 Gallery, Ry Beloin has been engaging the community through clay portraiture. We See You, We’re Listening is an exhibition that focuses on relationships mediated by art and art practices. As Beloin delicately molds and carves the distinct features of her subjects, the artist and subject become intertwined through shared stories and experiences. 

“In contemporary culture there’s a great deal of emphasis on self-discovery and personal journey, and I want to try an opposite tack—listening to other people. A good portrait acknowledges that someone else’s reality exists, which you could also say is what empathy is.” - Ry Beloin
