Mark Your Calendar: "Collective Compulsions" at Johansson Projects

Opening at Oakland's Johansson Projects this weekend: Collective Compulsions, a kind of "greatest hits" of the gallery's featured artists over the past 18 months. All share an obsession with "intricate visual detail ... Stepping back from the image, the meticulously built forms disappear into the context of the whole. Delicate, dense, panoramic memory maps stretch before us in one piece, only to collapse into spiraling abstractions in the next."

Among the featured artists:

Amanda Hughen (previously blogged here)

Val Britton (previously blogged here)

Anna Fidler

Nathan Cordero

Tadashi Moriyama

Kristina Lewis

Jill Gallenstein

Jen Stark

Misa Inaoka

Andrew Benson

An artists' reception will be held Saturday, January 17, from 4 to 7 p.m., and Collective Compulsions will be up at Johansson Projects through February 21.
