Far Far Near 1

new work by: Lauren Douglas, Billy Joe Miller, and Christopher West
with music by: Upside Drown, fieldguide, and Danny Paul Grody

Adobe Books Backroom Gallery
January 14 – February 12, 2012
Opening reception: Saturday, January 14, 7-10pm

Curated by James Sterling Pitt

Adobe Books Backroom Gallery is pleased to present FAR FAR NEAR, a group exhibition featuring the work of Lauren Douglas, Billy Joe Miller, and Christopher West. The exhibition concept centers on memory, its dissolution and recollection, viewed through an autobiographical lens. Curator James Sterling Pitt initiated conversations with the three artists around such diverse images and events as a disintegrating beach house, a mother whale stranded in the Klamath River, and a World Series baseball game inturrupted by the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. The resulting mixed-media exhibition expands on such universal ideas as nostalgia, family ties, and attempts to fix a fleeting moment in time.

The opening reception will feature special musical sets by three Bay Area bands: Upside Drown, fieldguide, and Danny Paul Grody. Please visit the Backroom Gallery blog for more info and updates on events to accompany the exhibition.
