Danielle Dimston: Lightness of Being

Municipal Bonds 1275 Minnesota Street, San Francisco

Dimston creates watercolors and drawings notable for a minimalist palette, linear composition, and transcendent field. Her work radiates emotional honesty through purity of the line—accessed by repetition, gradation, and undulation.

Carlos Villa: Infinite Self

A native San Franciscan, Carlos Villa (1936-2013) was an artist and educator whose legacy was immeasurable. His works from the 1970s and 80s deftly reject the ethnographic terms historically ascribed to non-Western art. Combining repetitive action, performance, and activism, his abstract assemblages are visually dramatic expressions of Filipino-American identity.

Jiab Prachakul: 14 Years

Friends Indeed Gallery 716 Sacramento Street, San Fransisco

Our identity is dictated to us from the moment we are born, but as we grow up, identity is what we actually choose to be. I do believe that our circle of friends is what makes us who we are. We are all outsiders, Asian artists living abroad, and their deep friendship has offered me a ground on where I can stand and embrace my own identity.
