Best New Art Gallery 

Slate Art & Design

A recent arrival to Temescal, the Slate Gallery brings a refined sensibility to the uninhibited creative ferment of the Oakland art scene, and no wonder: Owner Danielle Fox worked at Sotheby's in London and runs an interior design firm as well as the gallery, which exhibits paintings, prints, photographs, mixed-media works, and sculpture by emerging and mid-career artists. Fox seeks "elegant work that balances beauty and sensuality with a strong formal interest, clear sense of focus, and restraint." Past shows have featured Caroline Seckinger's deconstructions of traditional feminine roles in drawings, photographs, prints, and sculpture, and Michele Hofherr's Flora and Frost series of dramatically lighted black-and-white floral photographs. The current show, entitled Imaginary Landscapes, features Jessica Martin's painterly/collagistic paintings and her organism/machine sculptures; both 2-D and 3-D works are syntheses of real and imagined elements and other polarities, according to Martin: "nature and industry, past and present, microscopic details and vast landscapes."
