Best Gallery for Local Talent 

Esteban Sabar Gallery

A 2006 East Bay Express pick for Best New Gallery, Esteban Sabar Gallery, a large, multi-chambered space with a long roster of artists of varying styles, is now, at the ripe old age of two, the best gallery for emerging and mid-career East Bay artists — and art lovers seeking traditional paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photos. With both solo and curated thematic exhibitions, the gallery features, to cite a few examples: Bethany Ayres' Pop takes on the domestic-goddess commercial art of yesteryear; Guy Colwell's combining surrealism and social realism; Patricia Gillespie's ironic, feminist cutout figures set against quilted backgrounds; Jennifer Holmes' dramatic black-and-white nature photographs; Scott Hove's intense allegorical paintings; Albert Hwang's heavily painted abstractions; Hillary Kantmann's large feathered sculptures; Kenney Mencher's mysterious and humorous narrative paintings; Donna Mendes' paintings of abandoned buildings; Marty McCorkle's paintings of digitally recomposed figures; Russ Osterweil's photographs of the East Bay; Fernando Reyes' realist paintings; Michelle Waters' paintings of post-human animal takeover; and Martin Webb's moody abstract collages.
