Tania Houtzager: Melting Point

Melting Point is a body of work by Bay Area artist Tania Houtzager that investigates the fragility of memory and its relationship to the fleeting health of the environment. Inspired by a trip to Antarctica in December of 2016, Houtzager uses a process-based practice involving plaster and photo transfers to create collages, sculptures and paintings that capture complex truths of a vast and untouched, but nevertheless dissolving, landscape. As memories inevitably fade and ice melts unrelentingly, there is a sense of urgency in this body of work to make visible a moment in time and space. The result is an exhibition that presents the intimately personal and broader sociological aspects of the experience as fundamentally connected.

Tania Houtzager is a San Francisco based artist whose work investigates the physical and psychological structures of her environment. Through material investigation and process-based practices she explores notions of space, consciousness and memory. She received her MFA from California College of the Arts in 2017 and has exhibited her work in San Francisco, Oakland, New York and Venice, Italy. Houtzager is Gallery Route One’s Senior Fellow for this year.

Project Space

Lucid Art Residency Annual Exhibition 2017

This annual group exhibition of abstract and eco-art is inspired by the space and place of its residency program located in Inverness. The Lucid Art Foundation encourages the artists to explore contemplative non-figurative work. These artists have travelled from Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Ohio and California and have incorporating printmaking, textiles, drawing, automatism, multi-media, conceptual, and interdisciplinary approaches to this exciting exhibition. This year, the participating artists are:

Teresa Kalnoskas, Mikey Kelly, Lawrence LaBianca, Jo Margolis, Grace Munakata, Rachelle Reichert, Mary Robinson, Kathy Sirico, Petra Soesemann and poet David Bailey.

The goal of the Lucid Art Residency is to provide emerging and established artists a serene, retreat-like environment for an inquiry into arts and consciousness, the heart of the Foundation’s vision and mission. The Lucid Art Residency provides living quarters, studio space and access  to the Foundation’s extensive library for three weeks to 9 artists per year. During the residency, a prominent artist/educator dialogues with the artist offering feedback on the ideas explored and the work created.

The Lucid Art Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit Private Operating Foundation co-founded in the fall of 1998 by Robert Anthoine, Fariba Bogzaran, and Gordon Onslow Ford was created to explore the phenomena of the inner worlds and deep levels of consciousness through the visual arts, exhibitions and publications. The Lucid Art Foundation offers programs such as the artist’s Residency and Seminars to support artists and initiates projects that educate and support the exploration of inner worlds furthering the concepts of Lucid Art.


Marie-Luise Klotz: Equilibrium

Inspired by extreme weather events and a warming planet, Equilibrium, an exhibition of photographs by Bay Area artist Marie-Luise Klotz, contemplates the dichotomy of water. While water sustains life, it can also be a destructive force. This dual nature, creation and destruction, is greatly impacted by the onset of climate change, a disruption exacerbated by human intervention.

Through its use as a commodity for the wealthy, the sustaining trait of water is impacted by depletion and waste. Thus the very action of exploiting the intrinsically nurturing qualities of water leads to the destructive element of it coming alive. The photographs in this exhibition are a reflection on how humans capitalize, waste, exploit, fear, relish, conserve and revere water, as it transforms into a greater destructor than sustainer.

Marie-Luise Klotz is a German photographer who specializes in combining fine art and environmental photography. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including the Phoenix Art Museum, the 7th International Photo Triennial Esslingen, SF Camerawork, the New York Center for Photographic Art, and the Berkeley Art Center, among others. She is a recipient of the Paul Sack Building Award, an ArtSlant Showcase Winner and a Finalist of the Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize at Duke University. Klotz holds a degree in photo and communications design from the Lazi Akademie Esslingen, European School of Film & Design in Germany, and a Masters of Fine Arts in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. She lives and works in Oakland, California.

Klotz is Gallery Route One’s Emerging Artist for the 2017-18 period which ends June 30. This is the fourth year of Gallery Route One’s Fellowship program in which young artists from the Bay Area apply to become part of our community of working artists for a year.
