Through a glass, darkly

Exhibition Run: August 16 - September 6, 2014

Opening Reception: 7-10PM, August 16

Gallery Hours: 11-4PM, Wednesday - Saturday

Space 4 Art presents the work of Shana Demassi, Ana Teresa Fernandez, and Erika Ostrander. Using materials as disparate as tar, hair and glass, the presented works deal with sense and immediacy through performance, sculpture and projection. These common substances morph beyond their familiar forms and ask the viewer to reconsider notions of reflection and transience. The exhibit includes a performance by Ostrander during the August 16th reception.


Shana Demassi was born in San Diego, California, and has lived and worked in Italy, San Francisco and Los Angeles, where she obtained her BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. She is currently completing her MFA at UCSD.

Ana Teresa Fernandez was born in Tampico, Mexico and lives and works in San Francisco, California. She recieved a BFA and MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has been exhibited at the Tijuana Biennial in Mexico, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, and the Oakland Art Museum, among others.
