A  group exhibition by new NAPOLEON members Ava Hassinger, Katie Locke, Daniel Oliva and Ricardo Zapata

NAPOLEON welcomes its newest members with a group exhibition entitled float, accompanied with an essay by Samantha Mitchell. These four artists find a common interest in the intuitive process of art making. They share a recognition that in order to make art one must be keenly aware of activity at the threshold of human consciousness, where what is necessary meets what is possible. A reception for float will be held on First Friday, March 3. 


Opening Reception
First Friday, March 3rd
6pm – 10pm

Ready to Fight, 2017, linoleum relief print on paper (edition of 60), 18 x 24 inches

Daniel Oliva has created an edition of 60 linoleum relief prints to raise funds for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) during the exhibition. Each handmade print is $25 and 100% of the proceeds will be donated (equivalent to a $20 donation). Each print is numbered and signed by the artist. After the exhibition closes on March 26th the fundraiser will end. Prints are available to buy in the gallery (cash only) and online through Etsy and Daniel’s website. Please consider supporting the arts and equal rights with your contribution.
