The next major art installation at the Harrington Gallery in the Firehouse Arts Center, titled "Fragments, Edges & Ambiguities," will roam the boundaries between realistic and abstract with the works of five Bay Area artists:
* Taryn Curiel (watercolor)
* Dan Lythcott-Haims (photography)
* Jane Peterman (ceramic sculpture)
* Yucali Seki (mixed media)
* Cindy Stokes (photography).
The exhibit "celebrates both the imperfection and surprise of nature and man-made forms," staff member Alena Sauzade noted.
The exhibit kicks off with an artists' reception from 7-9 p.m. Feb. 28, which is free and open to the public to explore the works, meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments. A donation of $5 is requested.
The works will be on display March 1 to April 6 during regular gallery hours, as well as during theater intermissions.
Through its Young@Art program, the arts center is offering a special class connected to the exhibit for ages 5-11, from 4:30-5:45 p.m. March 28. Participants will have a guided exploration of the exhibit, then create their own works of art in the upstairs studio workshop. Register at www.pleasantonfun.com, code No. 12012. The fees are $18 for Pleasanton residents, $21 for non-residents.
Regular hours for the gallery, 4444 Railroad Ave., are 12-5 p.m. Wednesdays to Fridays; and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. For more information, visit www.firehousearts.org/gallery or call 931-4849.
