ArtHaus (San Francisco) widens the bridge between art and design

Last year ArtHaus introduced “the FINE ART OF DESIGNers”, an exhibition featuring visual art from some of the Bay Area’s most accomplished interior designers. The roster included; Gioi Tran /Applegate Tran Interiors, Katherine Bloodworth/ Wheeler Design Group, Kevin Hackett/Siol Studios, Candace Barnes/Candace Barnes Home and Steve Henry/BAMO. To complete the exhibition, Lawanna Endonino/Lawanna Cathleen Design created a lavish nod to film noir with her Collector’s Salon in the Project Gallery at ArtHaus. Here she incorporated furnishings and accessories from the San Francisco Design Center with select works from the ArtHaus Collection. The show was a benefit for Philanthropy By Design.

This month, in further support of Art and Design, Kendall Wilkinson Design & Home collaborates with ArtHaus to present “RED, WHITE and BLUE-TIFUL”. Here a selection of lush, bold colors compliment the works of Carolyn Meyer, Ricardo Carbajal Moss, Gioi Tran and Jeffery Ketcham. The show opened in celebration of the Sacramento Street ArtWalk, and continues through June 25th.

“Designer/Artist, Tracey Kessler was a major inspiration for “the FINE ART OF DESIGNers” at ArtHaus”, says Gallerist James Bacchi. “Her process is extremely interesting; venturing from interiors to lighting design, then on to two dimensional abstraction as a launching pad for textile design.”

JakHOME is currently hosting SCREENPRINTS 2010 by Tracey Kessler. The pairing is outstanding.
