In Parallel: Windy Chien & Serena Mitnik-Miller

June 15 - August 11, 2019

Curated by Jennifer Gately

Lines are critical visual design elements, they divide space, provide direction, create flow, and emphasize and organize elements into form. This exhibition brings together two San Francisco creatives, each inspired by the power and simplicity of the line. Serena Mitnik–Miller’s geometric watercolors begin with cues from nature, which she then multiplies into interlocking patterns of pigment. Tied into surprising forms that activate space, long lines of rope are Windy Chien’s preferred medium. The exhibition includes a range of sculptural hangings and a knot tying station where visitors may create their own knots inspired by Chien’s The Year of Knots, a project for which she learned a new knot every day for one year.
