Oakland based artist Tony Bellaver creates mixed media sculpture and drawings inspired by his love of hiking and nature. He incorporates maps, drawings, photographs and found foliage gathered on his many hikes to create texture and meaning in his diary-like works. Using materials such as wood as the framework, found objects and photographs he tells a layered story of his journeys. Tony Bellaver
Drawing people and scenes during her routine, and integrating them with journal entries, books and artifacts collected, Mary V. Marsh explores the intersection of mass media, consumption and personal habits. She looks at how information is delivered, how it is perceived and the gap between presentation and meaning.
