LUNCH MUNCH BLADE


NIAD artist Sara Malpass’ ceramic words inspired the title — “Lunch Munch Blade” — for a group show curated by Oakland artist Lisa Solomon and Marin artist Justine Frischmann. Together, these three words seem almost random, but suggest the surreal cut up technique used by many artists from the Dadaists to David Bowie. What emerges is a celebration of the candy colored pop sensibilities and punk ethic of Saul Alegria, Eddie Braught, Jeremy Burleson, Raquel Charles, Carlos Fernandez, Felicia Griffin, Raven Harper, Sara Malpass, Erica Martinez, Ann Meade, Demetri Petroupolos, Alice Sampson, Danny Thach, Jonathan Velazquez, Billy White and Matthew Wilson.

Lisa Solomon is a mixed media artist that moonlights as an art professor, illustrator, craft book author and graphic designer. She loved rainbows as a kid and is still completely and totally in love with arranging things in color order.

Justine Frischmann is an abstract painter who has exhibited nationally and internationally and is represented by the George Lawson Gallery in San Francisco.  Previous to art, Frischmann was the founder of the band Elastica. This is the second exhibition she has organized at NIAD Art Center.
