I first saw Wolowiec's work at a 2013 California College of the Arts Thesis Exhibition in San Francisco. I stopped by with a friend of mine, who pointed the work out. It looked good. I missed her one-person show at Anat Ebgi in Los Angeles in 2014, so I was excited that Ebgi was bringing her work to the NADA Miami Art Fair later that year. If you only looked at reproductions, you might be tempted to lump Wolowiec in with the dozens of other artists now busy producing Process Painting, or what many have now begun to call Zombie Painting. Seeing them in person is a must.

The play of light on San Francisco Bay was a major factor in his decision to settle permanently in Berkeley, where he worked as a preschool teacher and art supply cashier to support himself, finally becoming an adjunct professor for California College of the Arts. But all the paintings in the Matrix show are inspired by Iceland. CCA asked Zurier to teach a summer painting class anywhere he wanted in 2011, and remembering a horseback riding trip he once took with his wife, Nina Zurier, a photographer, he chose the far-north country.

Art has always been his way of expression and it’s carried him through. He graduated with his BFA in Illustration from the California College of the Arts this year, a couple of months before Mike Brown was shot and killed in the streets of Ferguson.

Unlike many traditional colleges and universities, the most tangible asset of an art and design education is the distinctive structure and style of teaching and learning that occurs daily on our campuses, across all disciplines. It's the kind of pedagogy that many traditional schools are beginning to recognize and strive to incorporate into their practice.

Artist, educator, and human rights activist Claudia Bernradi, works at the intersection of art and conflict. For 30 years, Claudia has participated in investigations of human rights violations, working with the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team in Argentina, Buenos Aires.

Mark Schinwald gives inanimate objects personalities of their own: they have good moods, bad moods, nervous tics, and psychological baggage.
