Excited to have “PLUSH HE THINK” by Brandon Gastinell February at White Buffalo Gallery opening thur Feb 12 and Feb 14th Second Saturday 5-8pm be ready to have your mind blown with epic art!
“Basically… I want to be an Art God, (Warhol level), and when I’m able to buy myself a Ferrari, I’m going to retire. I like to create cheap art. Pop culture plays a huge part in my work, almost every thing I’ve created includes a pop icon or super models… models are cool. I don’t consider myself an artist, I’m too pretentious.” – Brandon Gastinell

Known for his beautiful renditions of sweeping landscapes, renowned Californian artist Gregory Kondos has painted many views such as the islands of Greece, the French countryside, and the diverse terrain of California. Raised in Sacramento by Greek immigrant parents, Kondos received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in art from California State University, Sacramento. Highly collected and widely shown, his works have been featured at the Yosemite Museum, Sacramento International Airport, and the Reives Arches Museum, France, to name a few. For this current show, Kondos took a weeklong trip to the beautiful Yosemite Valley with friend and fellow artist Shimo this past September. In his characteristic style, Kondos has captured the beauty of Yosemite in eloquent yet simple charcoal drawings. On drawing, Kondos has stated, “Drawing is the skeleton under the flesh of a painting. It is where art begins. Drawing helps me to understand the landscape better…”
“Get in Where You Fit In” is Manuel Fernando Rios’ first solo exhibition at Axis Gallery. The works included in the show are based on the idea of acceptance. The imagery often includes figurative subjects juxtaposed next to colorful geometric shapes. The interaction between the figures results in pleasant or conflicting narratives. “Coming from a politically charged didactic screen-printing background and then experimenting with total abstraction in grad school, I felt like mixing the two ideologies in order to create the experience of trying to fit in. Weather you’re a child attending a new school or you’re an immigrant getting use to your new surroundings, everyone has felt that unease of trying to mix in so you don’t feel isolated.”
Manuel Fernando Rios earned his MA in Studio Art from CSU Sacramento and his MFA from UC Davis. Rios is also a Headlands Center for the Arts graduate fellow alumni. Manuel is a practicing artist living in West Sacramento, CA
The Alex Bult Gallery celebrates the new year with a solo exhibition by artist Sam Hernández entitled “Sculptures & Paintings.” Hernández, known primarily for his innovative work in wood, achieves poetic yet vigorous free-standing abstractions through such widely-varying tools as African adzes, Japanese saws, Native American crook knives, and high-powered sandblasters. From early work referencing the totemic, his more recent sculpture has moved in a looser, more lyrical direction as it simultaneously moves towards a powerful asymmetry and a more intuitively based manner of working.
Recipient of numerous honors including a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist Fellowship, a Senior Fulbright Scholar Award, and Silicon Valley’s Artist Laureate, Hernández’s work has been featured in numerous books, exhibition catalogues, and articles, and has been shown in museum and gallery exhibitions internationally. It is included in numerous public collections including the Yale University Art Gallery, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, The Contemporary Museum in Honolulu, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Macedonia, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Professor of Art at Santa Clara University 1977-2013, Hernández divides his time between California and Spanish Catalunya.
The exhibition will be on display beginning Thursday, January 8th through Saturday, February 7th, 2015. An opportunity to meet and speak with Hernandez will be possible at the preview on Thursday, January 8th from 6 – 8 pm, and at the opening reception on Saturday, January 10th, from 6 – 9 pm, at the gallery. The Alex Bult Gallery is located in midtown Sacramento at 1114 21st Street, Suite B. The gallery hours are 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. (916) 476-5540.
White Buffalo Gallery proudly presents “CONTINUUM” by Terese Garcia for the month of January.
3671 J st, Sacramento CA 95816
Terese is a non-representational process painter who has shown all over California. She’s represented by Gloria Delson Contemporary Arts in Los Angeles CA and the Gallery At Ventana. She’s also an artist member of the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art and the Pacific Grove Art Center. Her work is about texture, composition, palette and atmosphere where there are no boundaries to what can be said. Her palettes themselves are composed of ‘discovered colors’ made up of layers of paints and other natural and human made materials that cannot be found in a tube of paint. They are the end result of a process, which is why she so aptly refers to them “discovered colors.”
“My artwork is informed by nature, the unknown, impermanence and humility. I am a process painter and my work is experimental. I use the “process” to create my paintings. For instance, I may begin by using a blue paint and then I will layer and layer until the painting starts to speak to me and I’m then guided by these layers to perhaps draw markings with paper clips or old pens until I have really built a substantial surface that speaks strongly and powerfully to me. At that moment, a shape may appear and or no shape may come, which catches me off guard in a surprisingly positive way and then there will be a true feeling of completeness of the piece that allows me to see and experience a painting that I made that I have never seen before. This resulting observation, exploration and spontaneity unfolds naturally and none of my work is premeditated. In fact, my work is never premeditated, mentally sifted or dwelt upon. Each piece originates in the unique moment when everything falls into place as it happens. This process is part of my psyche, soul and self. I use many different mediums when making a painting that sometimes gives it a sculptural effect which is no surprise since I used to sculpt in clay and stone before painting.”
Join us for a Thursday evening of Art and refreshments as well as on Second Saturday.

White Buffalo Gallery presents “Under Layers” featuring the epic work of renowned street artist Kinzie Davis
Kinzie Davis was born and raised in a suburban boiling pot of positive and destructive culture is an artist who works in a variety of media. He mainly including and mixing the tools of graffiti and corporate advertising to create his work. By experimenting with aleatoric processes, he tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and believes in the idea of function following form in a work. His artworks directly respond to the surrounding environment of thought and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. However by contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, he formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works. The thought processes, which are supposedly private, highly subjective and unfiltered in their references to dream worlds; are revealed as beautiful moving assemblages. His works feature the coincidental, the accidental and the unexpected connections; which make it possible for any willing viewer to step directly into the artist mind and emotions. His personal follow-up and revival of a past tradition is important as an act of meditation. His collected, altered and own works are being confronted as aesthetically resilient, thematically interrelated material for memory and projection. He believes that the corporate world is slowly destroying human creativity, by drowning us in consumer and political propaganda. He wants to preserve what is left by creating thought provoking art for illuminated minds by revealing these Under Layers.
Join us for the opening reception on Second Saturday Dec 13th 5pm – 9pm with refreshments
