Ronit Hendels’ exhibit “Gate of destiny” at Spark Arts shows a journey of struggle to find a form of expression in a new country. Ronit moved to San Francisco in 2016 to be with the love of her life. She had always lived in Israel and had not yet been in the situation where English was the main language. During her first year, at a time when everything is new, finding herself far from family, friends, and anything known, it was hard to find a way to express her inner turmoil. She needed a way to communicate her thoughts and feelings and all that was happening on the inside.

Brewcade hosts permanent installation by Kate Wakeman and a group of artists led by Don Fluitt.
Don Fluitt leads a team of artists to create the Cityscape piece.The microchips and circuit boards I use in my work have always reminded me of buildings and cities so I jumped at the chance to work on the cityscape for Brewcade. There is a paradoxical aspect of assemblage art in taking an object intended for a particular purpose and using it to make something completely different. It's all about imagining possibilities and then bringing those visions into reality.
The Cityscape is a collaborative assemblage work that includes the work of six different artists (Aileen Cormack, Catherine Daley, Don Fluitt, Jenny Harp, Kyle Nahas, and Monty Monty). The unique style in each artist's work is meant to reflect the architectural diversity in the city itself.
Katie Wakeman was fortunate enough to be born into a long line of artists and it is not surprising that she was already an accomplished metal sculptor and welder at the tender age of twenty-two. Before she could hold safety scissors or operate glue stick, she would spend hours looking at her father’s art books. It was this early introduction to design that helped her on her path to inspiration and subsequent success.
2029 Market St
Steve Piasecki is a bay area artist working in photography and video. His influences and inspirations come from dreams, visions, somatic experiences, and nature. His photography has been published internationally. Born in Iowa, Steve studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and received a BFA in photography and computer graphics in 1992. He has lived and worked in San Francisco since 1993. His photography work focuses on the enchanting beauty of flowers, the role of insects, and images from dreams. With those sources as a basis, he creates mandalas for meditation and to contemplate how the world is reflected and revealed all around us.
