This will be the third time that Sarah Folkman and Krista Huot show at the gallery. Isable Samaras will be bringing her amazing oil pianting skills as well with her new body of work “Heavy Gretel”, which has to be one of the best names for a show I have heard yet. From the preview images it looks like Krista will be exhibiting some of her biggest paintings yet. This looks to be a very exciting show, so if your in the area be sure to stop by or keep your eye on the website for the full show release.

New drawings by Mia

Coming this Saturday, September 25th, to the Corey Helford Gallery is a show featuring new works by Korin Faught, Krista Huot, and Mia. Three very exciting artists each with a unique style, this should be a great show. Mia recently added some of the drawings that she will be showing over at her blog. The drawings range from 6.5″ x 6.5″ up to 29.25” x 22”. I like how you can see her drawing style tighten and loosen up in different areas of the drawings, but either way she has a very elegant style. Make sure to check out Mia’s blog to see more works, keep up to date with shows, and even see some sketches.

Review: Krista Huot’s “Nepenthe @ Gallery 1988 SF

Over the weekend I check out a couple of shows in San Francisco, one of which was Kista Huot’s solo show “Nepenthe” at Gallery 1988. I wanted to see the work in person like I always do, andI had a feeling that Krista’s work looked different in person. Her colors are far more vibrant in real life, and you can really get close to see all of the drybrushing found throughout her work. She also varnishes each painting so photos often wash out the painting, and doesn’t show the gloss that is achieved. Krista was there for the reception, so I was able to talk with her a bit about her work, materials and inspirations. I won’t go too into detail as I will have an interview on the site with Krista in the coming weeks. So hit the more link and see more images, and a little bit of what Krista had to say.

Preview: Krista Huot’s “Nepenthe” solo show @ Gallery 1988 SF

Opening this Saturday, January 9th at the SF location of Gallery 1988, Kirsta Huot’s latest solo show will open. This new exhibition is entitled “Nepenthe”, which is a Greek word that means “one (drug) that chases away sorrow”. It’s a great title for a show and fits Krista’s style and feel perfectly. Looking at the full preview (Here), the show is very strong. I absolutely love her color palettes and the way she handles that acrylic paint. The drybrushing technique she uses really helps to add depth to the work, and even gives her characters a glow. I can’t help but look at these paintings and wish that an animated movie by Krista was in the works. Along with the paintings there are also some drawings, studies for the paintings really. The drawings look great as well, you can see that she is not only talented with paints but pencils as well. If your in the area make sure you stop by the reception to see the works and possibly talk to Krista, I believe she will be there.
