Point Richmond Gallery is hosting a closing reception for the exhibit "Slow Frequency," the work of Bay Area artist Rick Gradone, offering a last-chance opportunity to meet the artist and experience his art.
The gallery invites you to join them in celebrating Rick Gradone’s Paintings and Objects of Meditation. The artist will be on hand to share his insight and inspiration for his art, which has been on exhibit at the gallery since early October.
The reception will be held on Sunday, November 26, 2023, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The gallery will be hosting the event in their outdoor space, which will include live dance music from the Oakland band "Beyond Obsession."
“Enjoy Slow Frequency. It’s playful, joyful, and optimistic. We will be hosting the band in our backyard space, under our 80-plus-year-old corkscrew willow tree,” Sullivan said.
Gradone says he Functions at the intersection of geology and religion and that his work imagines a new inclusive religion with the earth as its central figure.
Gallery owner Margi Sullivan explains that the "Slow Frequency" show has been about time and the cultural need to "accelerate," with life, in general, seeming to moving at a quicker pace.
"On experience of time in Western and particularly American cultures is of acceleration, actions are “speeding up” with technology, and now A.I. is capable of doing many people’s jobs in seconds. There is hope, and these works remind us to consider rocks as an ancient people did: as remembrances, runes, and talismans," Sullivan said.
Rick Gradone holds a B.A. in Art History from Fairfield University. Gradone has done residencies at Creekside Arts in Humboldt, CA, and the Belgrade Art Studio in Serbia.
