NOVEMBER 14-JANUARY 9TH
ARTBEAT SALON AND GALLERY
1880 SOLANO AVENUE
“Fish Tales” a show of mixed media and collage art by Marsha Balian and Katie McCann will be presented at the Artbeat Salon and Gallery November 14th through January 9th. There will be a reception for the artists on Saturday November 14th at Artbeat, 1880 Solano Avenue in Berkeley from 6-8 p.m. The event is free.
Self taught Oakland artist Marsha Balian admits resistance to following directions and prefers to invent her own techniques. Her work incorporates found objects and images combined with her own drawing and painting. Her art has a strong narrative quality, avoids what might be literal and attempts to engage the imagination of the viewer. Humor is never far behind.
English artist Katie McCann currently lives and works in Berkeley. Her intricate collages are inspired by childhood memories and some of the strange creatures she encountered in her imagination. The drawings and images that she finds in her collection of old books are cut up and transformed into paper hybrids that surely could be found at the bottom of the garden amongst the beetles and the lilac.
