PALO ALTO, CA – April 17, 2017 – Artists of Cubberley Artist Studio Program (CASP), a thriving community of artists based at the City of Palo Alto’s Cubberley Community Center, will display their work at Telegraph Hill Gallery in San Francisco, in two separate shows, RETROFIT 1.0, May 20–June 17, and RETROFIT 2.0, June 24–July 22, 2017.
In keeping with the exhibition theme – RETROFIT – the show’s curators, CASP artists Mel Day and Marianne Lettieri, selected older pieces the artists revised, those where the artist has returned to a previously explored subject matter or that reinterpreted a personal aesthetic trademark. The exhibit includes work from 21 artists working in diverse media, including photography, painting, sculpture, fiber arts, printmaking and mixed media.
The artists participating in RETROFIT 1.0 are Barbara Boissevain, Barbara Gunther, Charles Coates, Inge Infante, Lessa Bouchard, Linda Gass, Marianne Lettieri, Mel Day, Melissa Wyman, Pantea Karimi, and Servane Briand. The artists participating in RETROFIT 2.0 are Amy DiPlacido, Andy Muonio, Catherine diNapoli, Conrad Johnson, Ernest Regua, Ken Edwards, Paloma Lucas, Rochelle Doorley, Sahba Shere, and the collaborative artist duo t.w.five.
As a group, CASP artists include museum curators, college lecturers, art instructors, and winners of significant awards such as the Fleishhacker Eureka Fellowship, Silicon Valley Laureate, and Murphy Fellowship in the Fine Arts. Many exhibit their art internationally and have participated in prestigious artist residencies throughout the U.S. and abroad, including the DeYoung Museum and Djerassi Resident Artist Program.
CASP supports the vitality of the arts in Palo Alto by providing City-sponsored, affordable studio space for artists, building creative community and fostering public engagement with the arts and artists.
