NIAD at 25 

When: Dec. 5-Jan. 13 2009

The National Institute for Art & Disabilities in Richmond celebrates its silver anniversary with a large group show at Pro Arts featuring 35 works in drawing, printmaking, painting, sculpture, and mixed media by 28 client artists. Pieces that caught my eye were Arstanda White's drawing "The Godfather of Soul"; Marlon Mullen's painting "Whale"; Sylvia Fragoso's drawing "Untitled"; Sam Gant's drawing "iRWiiiii"; Rosita Pardo's painting "Mike Tyson"; Lois Ann Barnett's drawing "Bay Area Mountains"; Lacee King's print "Untitled"; and Beverly Trieber's painting "Untitled"; your favorites may vary. In the installation/project room are two installations by Jeremy Burleson, "Lanterns" and "Syringes." Both are comprised of casually assembled, rolled, taped paper sculptures. The lanterns take geometric shapes, but they're more slapdash and humorous than crystalline; nevertheless, the hordes of them with their shadows cast on the walls make an engaging spectacle. NIAD at 25 runs through January 15 at Pro Arts (550 2nd St., Oakland). ProArtsGallery.org or 510-763-4361
