Art Gallery

Fox Commons Art Gallery, housed in The Dream Institute building, has quarterly exhibits on varying themes. The openings typically are in concert with special Dream Institute events, such as our Equinox and Solstice plays or poetry readings. Gallery hours coincide with Dream Institute events for that entire season. The Gallery is not usually open to the public, but exhibiting artists are welcome to hold the Gallery open to host their own event. Artists are often recommended to us; we also welcome submissions of slides, photos, or jpgs.

Currently On Exhibit

Max DuBois    Night Vision

Viewing Max DuBois’s work is like seeing darkness illuminated. It’s a rare artist who successfully uses shades of black as the matrix or medium through which forms seem to emerge from the void. Her monotypes are subtle yet dramatic, stark yet lush, and what they depict is familiar yet unknown, singular yet universal. They cast a nocturnal spell captivating the viewer with their power and their mystery.

An artist since age eight, Max claims that school “almost ruined it.” Also trained as a graphic artist, she came to California from Idaho in the 1980’s and resides in Santa Rosa, where her studio and gallery are in the south A street art district.

Fox Commons Gallery is open before and after our regular scheduled programs, on Tuesdays and Thursdays 12noon-1pm, or by arrangement by calling (510) 845-1767 or emailing the office at dreaminstituteca@gmail.com.
