Brian and Ryan |  A Porto Vista Hotel Kitschmas Special  

December 1, 2018 - January 6, 2019

Artist Reception: December 6, 6PM - 8PM 

1835 Columbia Street, San Diego, 92101

In collaboration with the Porto Vista Hotel, 1805 Gallery is pleased to present A Porto Vista Hotel Kitschmas Special by the collaborative art duo Brian and Ryan.  Brian and Ryan will construct an installation that celebrates Christmas designs from mid-century to present. The work will be on view in the Lobby of the Porto Vista Hotel from December 1, 2018  through January 6, 2019.

An artist reception will be held on Thursday, December 6, 2018 from 6PM to 8PM.  Guests are invited to enjoy holiday music and refreshments provided by the GlassDoor restaurant. This event is free and open to the public.  

The installation explores the season’s unabashed twinkling lights, impulse shopping, glittering excesses, holiday television specials, and most importantly, the endless interpretations of countless artists, filmmakers and designers trying to capture the Christmas Spirit for the shopping public.  

Artists Brian Black and Ryan Bulis describe Kitschmas as “that childhood moment of excitement when you wake up on Christmas morning and unwrapped a mountain of plastic toys including that one offbeat toy from your great-great aunt. And it’s that feeling of euphoria you get as an adult years later when you once again come across that same toy from your childhood at a rummage sale.”  Brian and Ryan use the power of Kitschmas to elicit an emotional response from viewers transporting them to a place of comfort, humor and familiarity.

TOY DRIVE: NEW ALTERNATIVES 

In conjunction with the art reception, The Porto Vista Hotel is holding a Toy Drive through December 14th for New Alternatives, a non-profit

501(c)(3) corporation that works with foster children who have suffered and been traumatized by abuse, neglect, and abandonment. Bring Joy with a Toy! Don't worry about wrapping, unwrapped gifts are preferred. 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Brian Black and Ryan Bulis have been working collaboratively in Southern California since 2004. This artist team appropriates iconic activities and challenges preconceptions of masculinity, athleticism and identity. Their assisted sculptures are exaggerated archetypes taken from the workplace, sports and pedestrian life. By adjusting the familiar and pushing the level of absurdity in their art making, they invite the audience to reconsider the sanctity and boundaries of the art institution. Their collective work allows their independent objectives and concerns to converge into what has simply become known as Brian & Ryan.

Artist Reception: Thursday, July 5, 2018

1805 Gallery presents a solo exhibition of new work by San Diego based artist Corey Dunlap. The exhibit will run from July 5 - July 27, 2018. The gallery will host a reception for the artist on Thursday, July 5, from 7-9PM. 

The exhibition focuses on a series of digitally rendered prints and sculptures that explore the boundaries between object and body.  Dunlap constructs seductive objects in luminous colors that appear to coil and wiggle under an invisible pressure. The objects resemble fluid bodily forms that exist only within a virtual realm Dunlap has produced with a digital modeling software.

Corey Dunlap (b. 1990) received his BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2013 and is currently an MFA candidate at the University of California, San Diego. Recent solo exhibitions of his work have taken place at Helmuth Projects, San Diego (2017), How’s Howard?, Boston (2016), In The Pines Gallery, Jackson, WY (2015) and Howard Art Project, Boston (2014). He has participated in shows at the San Diego Art Institute, The Chazen Museum of Art, Embassy Galley, and The New Art Center.

In collaboration with Porto Vista Hotel, 1805 Gallery is pleased to announce Samantha Louise Marett as the new exhibiting artist in the Lobby Gallery from February 12 to April 8, 2018. The series of abstract paintings on display were created by Marett while in residence at 1805 Gallery in January 2018. The paintings examine her most vulnerable thoughts and experiences that are accompanied by text that reveals a fragile and personal memory. Through bold brushstrokes and vivid multi-textured pigments, Marett revisits memories of romantic relationships, financial struggles and insecurities in order to reclaim those moments as opportunities for personal growth and self-love.  Marett aims to reframe vulnerability as a strength rather than a weakness.

Very Adult Coloring Book Launch Vol. 2 Home & Garden

Coloring books are no longer just for kids, in fact, Rachel LaBarre’s Very Adult Coloring Book is made specifically for adults. Adult coloring has become a national phenomenon over the past year. The meditative nature of coloring has been proven to promote mindfulness while relieving stress. Rachel takes the adult coloring craze to a new level with her original Very Adult Coloring Books, capturing unique individuals in sensual moments accompanied by quirky captions.             

 1805 GALLERY is thrilled to host the launch of the Very Adult Coloring Book Vol. 2 Home & Garden, focusing on adults doing chores in the nude, and more artistic interpretations of some of the most mundane moments around the house. 

Join us on Thursday, March 31, 2016 from 6:30pm to 10:00pm for a night of coloring, music, cocktails, and light fare.   The event will be held at the Porto Vista Hotel located at 1835 Columbia Street, San Diego, CA 92101. Supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring preferred mediums.  

A limited number of tickets are available for purchase here.

Ticket price: $25

(includes the Very Adult Coloring Book Vol. 1 or Vol. 2 and one drink ticket ) 

 Rachel LaBarre 

Rachel, an expert designer and teacher of all things creative, explores patterns through drawing, printmaking, painting, and installations.  For the first time, Rachel combines the soft curves of nude figures with the hard edge contour lines of diverse patterns. 

Rachel’s interest in producing drawings for others to color and complete is inspired by the medium’s ability to motivate a sense of play and collaborative process.  

“When I get to see individuals' finished works and see their choices for colors and textures, I am reminded of how beautifully varied we all are in our interpretations of things.  - Rachel LaBarre

  • All Nominators will be writing about their nominee who is a local Avant Guarde artist i.e. one who is current and important in our day. We see these nominators as Champions of the artists they nominate.
  • Nominators have never nominated an artist before for the SD Art Prize or New Contemporaries show
  • All nominated artists will be included if they accept our invitation

Emerging artist definition: artist who are emerging with new, fresh ideas. This is not about the age of the artists or the exposure they have had, but what art they are creating now and in the past three to five years. We think of these artists as emerging from the darkness into the light of the public view.
