NAA presents Garland of Hours, Gage Opdenbrouw, oil

October 13, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

“For many years now, I have found old family photos, from my family, as well as found photos, to be poignant and moving source material for a body of paintings I call ‘Garland of Hours’” says Gage Opdenbrouw. “The paintings are often torn apart and rebuilt, destroyed, and reconstructed again and again, in the course, of their development—a process analogous to both the passing of time and our experience of memory.”

Ultimately the paintings are intended as meditations on themes like time, remembrance, forgetting, love, loss, impermanence, attachment, and letting go—a reflection on mortality and the passing of days, distilled into paint.

This demo will provide an overview of the work and an opportunity to look over the artist’s shoulder as he works on a canvas or two from this body of work.

About Gage Opdenbrouw
Born and raised in Northern California, Gage Opdenbrouw is an award-winning painter, who, until recent times, traveled frequently to paint and teach.  He now teaches online courses at Washington Studio School, in Washington DC, and Winslow Art Center, near Seattle.

He has an upcoming show at Sue Greenwood Gallery in Laguna Beach, with Ryan Reynolds and Sandy Ostrau, and another with San Francisco painter and longtime friend Heidi McDowell, at SHOH Gallery in Berkeley in this fall.  Other recent exhibitions include Black Spring, at Horse and Plow Taproom in Sonoma County, California,  a solo show at B Sakata Garo Gallery in Sacramento,  Midsummer Sun in an Empty Room at SHOH Gallery in Berkeley, and Silent Music at Washington Studio School.
