Ceramics, Dan Hager
November 1, 2018 - November 30, 2018 

Dan Hager, award-winning artist, has been creating ceramic art since 1980 in and around the San Francisco Bay Area and Nevada. The artist says, "I'm keenly interested in creating surface treatments that are unique and are reflective of my ceramic life experiences and my sense of design. Through the years I've worked in many different firing processes, but I currently focus on stoneware, alternative raku reduction techniques, basic raku, and aluminum foil saggar firings. Most of the forms I create are wheel thrown and then altered. Some pieces are altered by relatively subtle modifications to the surface, while other thrown pieces are altered in very major ways to create abstract sculptural works.”

Oil Paintings, Bill Sarnoff 
November 7, 2018 - December 28, 2018

Bill Sarnoff grew up in the Midwest and moved to the Bay Area after college. He worked as a professional illustrator and graphic designer before moving into positions managing creative groups at Silicon Valley tech companies. Currently, he is retired and following his dream of pursuing art full time. He is fascinated with the composition, draftsmanship, and surface technique of great masters such as Velazquez, Rembrandt, Gainsborough, and Reynolds. In his recent series of oil paintings, he interprets the style of the great masters, bringing them into the modern world.
