Artist's Reception: Breaking Open: New Works by Michelle E. Fillmore

4pm - 7pm

Join us for a celebration of new works by Oakland artist, Michelle E. Fillmore, in her solo show, “Breaking Open”. Come enjoy yourself at our fabulous outdoor event with a glass of local wine, wonderful live music and our favorite local gourmet food vendor, then mask up and step inside of our spacious gallery to view these bold and beautiful new works by Michelle E. Fillmore.

The paintings of Michelle E. Fillmore convey a beautifully straightforward and understated glimpse at what it means to be human, with all of its hardships, insecurities and, most resoundingly, hopes. In technicolor realism, she subtly presents themes like mental illness, fear and uncertainty in such a way that what the viewer is left with is not only greater understanding and empathy but a renewed sense of optimism and resiliency.
