It’s a great big world…

We live in yet some of the greatest threats come in the smallest and most deceiving packages. So we host our Tiny Monster themed art show in tribute to the wolf in grandmother’s clothes, to the bump in the night, to the monsters under our beds and to all of your most dangerous creations who lurk in a tiny frame.

TiNY MONSTERS, Fe Gallery’s national juried show featuring over 90 pieces of 2d and 3d monsters and monster stuff.”

Juried by Katherine Harmon, author of one of my favorite books “You Are Here, Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination”!

“There has always been a mapping impulse in human consciousness. The map is the quintessential tool for charting human progress, collective knowledge, and personal experience. Maps establish boundaries and meanings. They are a source of discovery and use a specific language. They also provide windows into the unknown.”

20130623-jemal-diamond

“Artists chart singular perceptions rather than assert any collective truth.” (Katharine Harmon) The artist map conveys personal territory, calling out to viewers, “I Am Here”. Art maps can be used for exploration of the personal, the political, or as a tool to investigate the experimental. Mapping as Source focuses on the many ways artists use or create maps for personal expression.”

About the Art-in-Neighborhoods Program:
ArtSpan’s Art-in-Neighborhoods program serves the city of San Francisco by connecting communities with local artists while activating spaces with vibrant, locally-made artwork. ArtSpan partners with local businesses and building owners to bring art exhibitions and art events to businesses, dormant storefronts, and empty spaces for lease that seek artwork for their blank walls. Local artists who are ArtSpan members are given the opportunity to display, promote, and sell their artwork in these diverse venues. All aspects of the program allow otherwise unused walls, spaces, or properties to become creative arenas for celebrating local arts.

Introspection APÉRO Catalogue July 2017

Thrilled to be included in Apéro Gallery’s Fine Art Collection 2017 “Introspection.”

Curator Review by E.E. Jacks: “Phonographs and King Dragons” – Title by Lisa A.

“This charismatic, and illustrative work is by artist Jemal Diamond. Diamond has connected a very comprehensible series of lines, where the definable subjects appear to slowly manifest themselves to the viewer. This minimalist metamorphosis is wonderfully imaginative, and the playful, yet mature arrangement of elements in this piece, applaud the concise title.” – E.E. Jacks
