The new works include a wide variety of overlapping mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation and music. Smith along with The Sunsets will perform at the opening reception. 

Dave Huebner: Dave H's "Art" Show

Alice Shaw: Cloned
April 6–May 26
Opening reception: Fri., April 6 from 6–9pm
Using imagery of a single sheep, Alice Shaw examines the tension between the antiquated photo subject and the contemporary perspective. Serving as a potent symbol, the sheep is a stand-in allowing Shaw to reference a past era and the cloning ability of the photograph with its near limitless ability to reproduce multiples from a single original. Cloned is comprised of both traditional and digital photos, stereo images and sculptural pieces.

Adriane Colburn: Semiprecious
April 6–May 26
Opening reception: Fri., April 6 from 6–9pm 
Semiprecious is a series of works based on global transportation maps and sites of mass material extraction.

The exhibition underscores resilience and how we are able to experience the world through technology.

Nathaniel Russell: Peace Jazz 
June 1–July 28
Opening reception: Fri., June 1 from 6–9pm
Indianapolis-based artist Nathaniel Russell works across a wide range of mediums including prints, paintings, zines, and wood sculpture.

Last Fall The New York Times featured Russell's satirical and thought-provoking “fake fliers” from his new book Fliers: 20 Small Posters with Big Thoughts.

Gallery 16 Documentary
In celebration of its 25th Anniversary, Gallery 16 has produced a documentary honoring the strong bonds and community it has created with the many Bay Area artists, musicians and writers with who have helped shape the gallery into what it is today.

Jason Middlebrook
September 7–October 27
Opening reception: Fri., Sept 7 from 6–9pm
Jason Middlebrook has long been interested in man’s complex and often adversarial relationship with nature.

Carolyn Salas
September 7–October 27
Opening reception: Fri., Sept 7 from 6–9pm
Carolyn Salas is a sculptor and installation artist based in New York. The artist finds interest in the “in-between” stages; the tension that lies both within the physical space and the psychological space. The work oscillates between abstraction and figuration, between site-specific works and sculpture employing a wide array of materials including, found objects, collage, craft-oriented assemblages, fabric and recycled items.
