Through Feb. 8
Every year, the Berkeley Art Center (1275 Walnut St., Oakland) invites all of its members to display their work in a group show that highlights the range of the artistic talent it represents. This year, the show was titled HERE, and featured more than 250 works. From that collection, guest curator Aimee Friberg (director of CULT Exhibitions gallery in San Francisco) chose five artists — Mariet Braakman, Sabine Reckewell, Afton Love, Amy Nathan, and Joyce Nojima — to invite back for HERE Part II. When choosing the works, Friberg was interested in the curatorial theme of meditative mark-making, including repetitive practices, the exploration of volume, and works that comment on their own materiality. The piece that literally takes center stage in the show is Nojima’s large, untitled, white plastic installation that hangs from the ceiling. To create the piece, Nojima repeatedly punctured a sheet of plastic with a heated metal rod until it deteriorated into a decaying net of burnt material. Reckewell’s site-specific installations form an interesting dialogue with Nojima’s work. Using yarn and ribbon, she draws repeated lines from the wall to the floor, creating a three-dimensional drawing that warps one’s perception of space. Altogether, the show isn’t exceptionally memorable, but offers a worthwhile view into the practices of five talented artists from different regions of the Bay Area. Free

New Abstraction

Through March 21, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
An exhibition exploring the varied approaches of four artists in creating non-figurative work. For some of these artists abstraction is a means by which to translate observed reality, while for others it is a pure investigation of the formal aspects of art. Ranging from distinct lines and sharp forms to more organic visual effects, these artists use sculpture, painting, and mark making to create work in which color, texture, surface, line, and form are the primary subjects.
