- New House Gallery
Artists in Residence Solange Roberdeau and Ido Yoshimoto, who installed a collection of their individual and collaborative works in New House Gallery, also worked with Advanced level Visual Arts students. Students learned from Ido and Solange's practices of finding inspiration in natural materials as well as their deep appreciation of craft.
Ido is inspired by his work as an arborist. He had a rich history growing up among the vibrant wilderness of West Marin and the art residence of JB Blunk, to whom his father was an assistant. Ido just returned from a successful exhibition in Tokyo and is a constant fixture among many Bay Area galleries of art and craft.
Solange grew up in a similar rural environment further north in Humboldt County. Her work comes from a drawing and printing-making background influenced by traditional Chinese and Japanese practices. While taking inspiration form the past, her works feel grounded in the present with bold modernist designs employing a rich mix of traditional and digital media--from Sumi ink and building to silkscreen and digital printing.
The two artists also shared their and their artistic processes during a project withwith Advanced level Visual Arts students.
