“Outside the open window” Exhibition at Andra Norris Gallery

January 8, 2022 @ 10:00 am - February 18, 2022 @ 5:00 pm PST

In three panels, geometric prisms confuse shape, shadow, dimension and the natural world, combining panels of muted rainbow patterns, submarine flora and weird, otherworldly naturescapes.

Bay Area artist April Dawn Parker will be featured in a show at Andra Norris Gallery in Burlingame from January 8th to February 18th, 2022. “Outside the open window” will feature seven large triptych paintings from Parker’s latest series “Cathedral,” as well as small studies and drawings.

Parker’s oil paintings depict magical environments that exalt our environment. The work showcases what we can preserve with climate action. Building upon Parker’s obsession with the natural world and geometric forms, she is repurposing the triptych frame to send a clear ecological message. Expect to see surreal worlds inspired by nature that combine vibrant colors with different biomes. Each painting’s name comes from phrases of Rumi’s poetry, the 13th Century Sufi mystic.

Parker was raised in California and has worked in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Chicago, New York, and now Marin County, CA. Originally a graphic designer, Parker has shown her paintings at gallery shows, private art salons, and national juried exhibitions across the country. Parker was an artist-in-residence at the San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts in 2015.

“Outside the open window” will have an in-person opening reception on January 15th at 5pm. The reception and exhibition will be free and open to the public. Andra Norris Gallery is located at 1107 Burlingame Ave, Burlingame, CA 94010. Please see the gallery website at http://www.andranorrisgallery.com or call (650) 235-9775 for more information.
