Art of Royal Priest
White Buffalo Gallery is excited to present “Project Eve” Art of Royal Priest for August running until Sept 5st.
“Life is bizarre. God is real. Love is King. I agree with Matisse when he said, “all art is religious.” My goal is to create remarkable art and continue in the dialog with the great masters of art history. My work explores the themes of death, sex and heaven.
I paint on canvas with oil paint, which is a beautiful and traditional medium that stands the test of time. At times I explore working with acrylic and spray paint for diverse textures and techniques. I am interested in philosophy, color and precision. My goal is to exhibit my work in museums with the intent to engage people with the power of creativity, and to help them believe that everyone has a genius that needs to blossom.”
Join us for opening reception Thurs August 6th as well as 2nd Saturday August 8th 5-8pm

Join Tim Collom Gallery this Saturday for the incredibly talented Richard Stein’s solo show, “Field Paintings.” Stein’s folk inspired renditions of the Sacramento Valley are a new take on a classic subject. They showcase Stein’s interpretations and manipulations of the textures, patterns and colors of the Delta that are only seen from up in the air. Complimenting these are a series of Stein’s Americana paintings that stir up nostalgia of Sacramento’s simpler country life.

Off the Grid explores the formal, social, and environmental aspects of the grid. The exhibition presents works of art that offer alternative ways of engaging the grid as a structure, tool, device, motif, form, or system. Each artist in Off the Grid challenges in some way the grid’s discursive and conceptual confines, attempting to liberate its structural coordinates through concept and form.

2nd SaturGay is a monthly art and community showcase that takes place as part of the Midtown 2nd Saturday Art Walk. This showcase is dedicated to celebrating specific populations within the LGBTQ community through art, poetry, music, and other mediums. The event includes art or performance, food and drink, and a lively atmosphere that celebrates the diversity and talent of our community.
This show is all about the process of realizing who you are on the inside and challenging others to accept and question what they feel is acceptable or attractive.
The beginning of this process is a little tortured, showing that internal struggle with tight hands and feet clenching. The middle process of removing clothing represents that turning point within, letting go of all that struggle to expose the true self. Then lastly the confident gender fluid souls, beautiful in their own way and challenging the viewer to see the beauty that they see in themselves.

i could go on forever is Gillian Alexandra Kalisky’s love letter to the place of her birth, California’s central valley. Shot over a decade of living on the east coast and abroad, the work in the exhibition follows Kalisky’s travels throughout the world while always returning home. Drawing on an array of influences, the project is heavily process based. Taking cues from Eggleston, Ruscha, and the New Topographics, man’s influence on the natural landscape holds a place of high importance in the work. Analogue processes, such as Polaroid and silver gelatin, are also integral.

Art of Brandon Gastinell
July at White Buffalo Gallery
Brandon’s work is saturated in modern pop culture with bold, bright colors and contrast. His work is all about staging compelling contrasts and juxtapositions of collage. The life and death balance is something that flows through each piece as well as blurred line between the beautiful and the monstrous. He exposes just how thin the line between the two can be. He, as always, intends to challenge the viewers perspective with his stylistic interruptions.
Join us 5-8pm on Thursday and Saturday for opening Receptions for his new show entitled “Hi, my name is Brandon Gastinell.”
Looking forward to seeing you there.
