Unique Show in Fine Arts Gallery Showcases Environmental Architecture

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Rick Holty, 48, is one of many fine arts students that helped put the exhibit together.

One piece he helped put together was titled Between Here and There, by artist Sheila Ghidini. This art piece, similar to a blueprint, is made with graphite and extends across a white wall. Lines of tape flow downward from the wall onto the floor, creating a 3D effect. A white chair is part of the exhibit for people to sit and get a closer look of the intricate details on the large piece.

Holty also helped put together art pieces by Bay Area artist Bessma Khalaf. Khalaf was born in Iraq and is currently based in Oakland. She came to the U.S. at the beginning of the Gulf War when she was 12 and is now making her mark in the artistic world of photography and sculpture.
