Bella Bigsby Free Staff Pick

When: March 27-April 5 2012

The austere, immaculately-conceived nature paintings of self-taught artist Bella Bigsby feel right at home among the custom art-jewelry of the transcendentally upscale Esqueleto in Temescal. Hanging like jewels themselves in moody compositions of calmly arranged, neutral colors, Bigsby's plant and animal subjects are rendered with the detail of fine illustration. Her résumé of exhibitions includes a who's who of hip stores on both sides of the bay, as her meditative yet not overtly decorative work lends itself to expert merchandising. Placed on shelves or leaning against walls, Bigsby's sixteen paintings at Esqueleto seem to be just hanging out as if in an artificial ecosystem. Esqueleto can be found in the enclave of new stores called Temescal Alley (482a 49th St., Oakland) and is a great stop on First Fridays -- although Bigsby's show ends before the next one, on Thursday April 5. 510-629-6216or
