A Peek Inside The KALA Art Institute

SF Bay Arts dropped into KALA Art Institute in Berkeley to see what was happening there. A new show was just going up-

KALA is part gallery, part studios and workshops with fellowships and residencies. It is located in a fine old building in Berkeley, the former home of the Heinz ketchup factory.  After checking out the show (see our top picks above) we poked around some nearby storage in a studio space and discovered some beautiful works by printmaker Jenny Robinson, freshly framed & lying about. Fantastic gestural renditions of structures- bridges, roller coasters and billboard towers among others – cropped to almost abstract but not quite. It was nearly impossible to get a decent photo due to the glass on the prints, so we raided the web a little to share her striking works with you. Hopefully our shots lend a little of the depth and richness of color so hard to capture in one photo.
