Since then they have contributed work to promote OMCA's Queer California exhibit, hosted a workshop at Air Bnb's SF Headquarters, and participated in art markets throughout the Bay Area. They view their collab as a labor of love and enjoy providing functional, fun, one-of-a-kind artwork for the masses.

For our next featured artist, we are excited to host the incredible textile art of Lisa Jacobs Handler of Retromode Handmade. Lisa is a resident of Phoenix, AZ and has been making art for over 20 years. This current collection is a series of wall hangings that include: weaving, macrame, embroidery, and hand-dyed materials. The artist reception will be on Saturday, July 20th from 6 pm - 8 pm at Resurrect. Stop by and meet the artist and check out all of our new summer styles. If you can’t make the reception, Lisa’s art will be up until September 15th.
With a goal of continual growth through exploration, Lisa Jacobs Handler is passionate about fiber art and textile design as her main artistic focus. Her work can be seen as functional and fashionable for home decor and personal adornment. She employs a variety of textile techniques including weaving, embroidery, macrame, sewing, and hand dying. Natural fibers such as wool, silk, cotton, and bamboo are her preference, as they each have their own reaction to natural dye and mordants and therefore a unique interaction with each other. Using a mixed media approach, Lisa is inspired by the results of manipulating color and texture through process and experimentation. All the processes that she is interested in are slow and time consuming, detail oriented, sometimes unpredictable, and yet gratifying. She is focused on naturally occurring patterns and colors. The intersection of science and art inspires her and tells a story in and of itself and then she layers her own ideas within to tell a story of her own. Check out Lisa’s Instagram @retromodehandmade for her newest creations.

We are excited to announce our next art show with Oakland artist, Lisa Hsia. Lisa has been a regular of Resurrect for many years and we were thrilled to see her beautiful watercolor pieces. Join us for the art reception on Saturday, May 18th from 6 pm - 9 pm. Read on to learn more about the show and Lisa.
HOW TO MAKE ART WITH A TODDLER is a selection of Lisa Hsia’s recent work, showcasing what can be created within the restrictions of full-time parenting and no dedicated studio space. (Lisa painted the title piece with her three-year-old actually sitting on her lap.) As indicated on the title, making art “with” a toddler has various meanings: artistic collaboration between mother and child, frequent physical proximity and shared space, rarely having time or solitude, the energetic drain of moving constantly between the very different demands of caretaking versus art-making, regular inspiration from exposure to a young child's openness of expression. All the artworks demonstrate some way of finding freedom within constraint, whether through highly saturated color in small doses, larger works created from an accumulation of small ones, quick live sketches, or lettered reminders-to-self that creativity is as much about the process as what emerges from it.
Lisa Hsia is a writer, artist, and mother living in Oakland. She works primarily in watercolor and brush pen. Her creative motivations are: to honor the richness and transience of life by documenting the moment; and to maximize — within the constraints imposed by parenting and not having a studio — the sheer joy of color and the meditative qualities of watercolor. Her artwork has been featured at Kearny Street Workshop’s annual APAture festival, Manifesta salon, and on various websites. You can find her online at satsumabug.com and on Instagram as lisa.hsia.art .
The last few years on Earth Day, we have chosen to donate a portion of our sales to a non-profit that focuses on saving the environment. This year, we are excited to promote Trees for Oakland. Their mission is to contribute to the urban forest in all of Oakland by planting and maintaining trees in the city, with an emphasis in areas with limited canopy. By doing so, they aim to educate people about trees, combat climate change, and provide a more equitable distribution of trees within Oakland.
Trees in urban settings are extremely important. Here are some of the ways that trees can benefit us: sequester carbon emissions, reduce storm-water run-off, improve air quality and offset air pollution, & increase property value and reduce crime. Trees are essential for human health - science has shown that levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) goes down with more trees around and we know that stress drives bad health.
Trees for Oakland currently has several volunteer days coming up where locals can help to plant these trees, so if you are interested check out this link. They are also still offering trees, so if your street is in need feel free to contact them. Check out their website for more info or stop by the shop Sat. 4/21- Mon. 4/23 to learn more and help out our fundraiser.
Welcome to Zoom In, a solo show by local Bay Area artist Zoe Hall. Follow as she takes you through a textural experience that is at once botanical and geometric; raw and practiced. Many of the mixed media pieces you will see here are curated directly out of Zoe’s sketchbooks, and enlarged into prints, resulting in an intimacy between the viewer and the artist’s ritual of documenting her impressions of the natural world around her. She is showcasing paintings, drawings, collages and prints.
Zoe’s work emanates a spontaneous vibrancy, combined with an almost obsessive focus on realism and detail. Nature is often Zoe’s muse, an endless inspirer of patterns, textures and raw forms. In a fast-paced world where simple beauties so often get missed, Zoe has honed her eye to notice the intricate design of all things small – be it the repetitive hexagon pattern found in a paper wasp’s nest, the bursting red seeds from a dried magnolia flower pod, or the delicate veins making up a gooseberry skeleton. She often finds herself collecting these tiny overlooked treasures and bringing them back to her studio for inspiration and closer study. She takes the familiar and brings it so close that we cannot help but spend time with what we may have otherwise overlooked. Zoe uses charcoal, eraser, ink/crow quill, watercolor, gelatin monoprinting, collage, and staining to play with shadow and light, raw form and negative space, control and freedom.
On Saturday 3/16, we have a fun filled day planned for you! Corrina will be popping up with her herbal tinctures and potions; as well as reading tarot from 1pm - 5pm. Feel free to contact her to reserve a spot or just swing by the store. To learn more about her work check out .riseupgoodwitch.com

Resurrect is excited to present our next art show entitled “Passageways”, which features the artwork of three Bay Area artists: Olivia A Carter, Judy Fleming, and Eva Restad. A combination of ceramics, drawings, Linocut and paper-cut art, “Passageways” came together as an expression of the artists’ mutual love of doorways, portals, and moving from one space to another. As a doorway is a conduit to a new physical space, art can push us into different mental and emotional states.
Please come out to the art reception on Saturday, January 19th from 6pm - 9pm to meet the artists. What better way to start the new year then with local art!
Olivia A. Carter is an Oakland artist who grew up in Fresno, California, at the heart of the San Joaquin Valley. She would love it if there was a secret passage directly from her house in Oakland to her parents’ house in Fresno.
Judy Fleming gives private pottery lessons and makes pastel-colored functional ceramics in her cozy backyard studio in Oakland, CA. She is in the process of completing her MFT/School counseling degree and in the future plans to open a space for expressive healing.
We are pleased to host our next art show with local artists Lea Zalinskis and Laura Ann Kay. Stop by Friday, December 14th from 5pm - 8pm and check out their new whimsical work just in time for the holidays.
