ONLINE ART SHOW Pacing an immaculate gallery floor, carefully viewing brushstrokes on a canvas and reading the small placards next to a work are the small joys of looking at art. Shoh Gallery has brought this experience online in a beautifully displayed digital art show titled “How to Breathe.” The online exhibition has diverse styles, mediums and color palettes. The uniting theme is breathing and that reflects in the dynamism of each of the works. Kanna Aoki’s painting of a rider and horse silhouetted by glimmering atmospheric lights, for example, bears a resemblance to some of the effects in Gustav Klimt’s work. All in all, the show features reasonably priced, thought-provoking and captivating works by local Bay Area artists with 10% of each sale donated to BayAreaFeedER. Good art for a good cause.
