Elegies: Works in Abstraction
Curated by Anthony Anchundo
An elegy is a song of longing, a lament for things, for times, for loved ones that have passed and gone.
And elegy can be gentle or powerful. It can bring weeping or simply a soft smile at the remembering of something beautiful and beloved.
The idea of using the elegy as a theme for visual art follows these same contours, especially for this show dedicated to presenting the works of six prominent abstract artists.
Just like a spoken elegy, abstraction points to something beyond itself and inherently attaches itself to something of the past whether a form or a ghost, a memory, or an idea.
Each of our artists have selected from their work pieces that express the idea of an elegy – to choose works that represent their own vision of longing and remembrance of things lost.
Come pass by and see a diverse group art show showcasing local artists in celebration of the Filipino cultural month at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC).

The Paolo Mejia Art Gallery and Design Studio proudly presents “Pattern Paintings: An exhibition of pattern and tape paintings” by Patrick Donovan.
This solo show will exhibit the elaborate and detailed paintings of capturing patterns in it’s extreme redundancy. Patrick Donovan is a painter who meticulously paint patterns and juxtaposes them by creating the idea of trompe l’oeil visuals on paper that are taped together forming grid patterns. The result is his mind-boggling perfection of painted pattern making.
Come pass by his art show, see great artwork and purchase a piece or two for your collection or as a gift.
