A solo exhibition of paintings by Visiting Artist, Howard Hersh. This exhibition, entitled In My Shoes, will be on view from October 5th – November 16th, 2013. In this exhibition, Howard Hersh expresses a lifelong passion for nature and beauty, which is clearly reflected in his art. Throughout these various series of paintings, Hersh has remained dedicated to the core impulse to assemble and depict relationships between art, nature, architecture, and spirituality; “A world we create, and a world by which we are created.” Born in Los Angeles in 1948 and currently living in San Francisco, Howard Hersh is a third generation artist who has exhibited his work widely around the country, with fifty solo shows and over one hundred group exhibits. Hersh’s work is featured in prominent public spaces and collections in the United States, Japan, China, Indonesia, and Africa.
