Resurrect is turning six and we are celebrating with a store-wide sale on 9/22 and 9/23!
On Saturday, 9/22, we are hosting an art opening for SF artist, David Morritt from 6pm - 8pm. Stop by for refreshments, indulge in our anniversary sale, and check out his incredible sculptures.
David Morritt is an American artist, teacher, and curator based in San Francisco, CA. He currently teaches sculpture at Orinda Intermediate School.
Inspired by the environment, culture, and the everyday rhythm of life, his mixed media sculptures invoke a dialogue between feminine and masculine, ornate and unadorned, growth and decay, celebration and mourning, vulnerability and truth. As a peaceful support of protest, revolution, and protection of wildlife and the environment, these works promote an inclusive vision of world peace focusing on human as well as animal rights.

Resurrect is turning six and we are celebrating with a store-wide sale on 9/22 and 9/23!
We are excited to present "Hoodoos" a collection of oil paintings by local artist Nancy Brown. Stop by the shop on Saturday 7/12/18 from 6pm - 9pm to meet the artist. Refreshments will be served.
Nancy Brown is an Oakland realist painter who usually paints scenes of life in Oakland, but an exploration of the definition of "hoodoo" led to a fascination with mystical natural monuments made by time, desert conditions and ancient sea beds. This is a collection of small, enchanted oil renderings of vast, wild, natural phenomena.
Join us to celebrate all things sky and then some with Oakland ceramic artist, Laura Ann Kay on Friday, May 18th from 6pm - 9pm. Laura's whimsical ceramic art pieces are perfect for Spring. From sun and sky plates to high-flying birds, happy fish, wall faces, and quirky characters, Laura's work reflects her playfulness, affection for nature, and love of color. In addition to her wall art, she will be debuting a handful of her new hand-painted snack plates. Join us for refreshments, late night shopping, and wonderful local art! In case you have to miss the art reception, the show will be up from May 15th - July 15th, 2018.
Laura Ann Kay's affinity for ceramics began in 2010. Initially, she created small pieces, the kind of enchanted objects she might have collected as a child and stashed in her jean pockets. Over the past 8 years, she’s developed numerous themes, creating texture using bits of broken pen parts, paint brush handles, eucalyptus pods, and other various found objects.
Please join us for the art opening of a new group show at Resurrect entitled "Resilience" featuring the artist collective, Las Cadre, which includes artists; Jennifer Brazelton, Michelle Gregor, Susannah Israel, Francoise LeClerc, Tom Michelson, Vince Montague, Tiffany Schmierer, and Elaine Toland. The eight Bay Area artists featured in this show have been working together and supporting each other’s art practice for 12 years. Resilience is a celebration of our collective strength and mutual support. The insight and generosity of such a dialogue is an invaluable tool for creative growth and personal resilience. Each artist will show new work that interprets this theme.

We are excited to announce our newest art show (opening 9/16/17) featuring the artwork of Mary Morrow. Mary is a true Renaissance woman and has dabbled in all sorts of artistic endeavors and professions throughout her lifetime, including; sewing, acting, set design, costume design, playing music, interior design, and painting. Mary is also the mother of Resurrect's founder Kate. She has been a huge influence on Kate's love of fashion, sewing, and art and was a very supportive force in helpingKate achieve her dreams of opening Resurrect.
We are so excited that Mary came all the way out from Phoenix, AZ to present this new art show entitled: El Cielo Y El Infierno (Heaven and Hell). The show will be up at Resurrect from September 16th - November 13th 2017. We will be having the artist reception on September 16th from 5pm - 7pm during Resurrect's 5 year anniversary sale, so stop by for a chance to meet the artist.
Growing up Catholic, Mary Morrow was influenced by the nuns in parochial school and their vivid tales of Heaven, Purgatory and Hell. In her early teens, she moved to Addis Ababa, Ethiopa and was introduced to the colorful art of the Ethiopian Coptic Church. As an adult, Mary resides in the Southwest, and has fallen in love with Latin American folk art, Frida Kahlo, Dia de Los Muertos and Our Lady of Guadalupe, whom she considers our Earth Mother. Mary began a collection of over 30 Latin American hand-carved wooden masks on her travels. On a voyage to Peru, she was astonished to find detailed life-size tableaus of saints fully clothed in silver and gold finery. All of these influences continually shape her art and her life. She’s woven them together using painting, fabric, collage, and presented her art alongside several of the masks to create her show, El Cielo y El Infierno.
Resurrect's next art show entitled The Hanged Plant features the artwork of Emily Jane Fuentes and Erica Shapiro-Sakashita. The Hanged Plant will be a combination of woodworking creations by Emily and screenprints plus handmade plants by Erica.

The Mad Era Collection by Emily Jane Fuentes combines unique wood structures, glass vessels, and curious plants. These novel creations incorporate found, salvaged, and repurposed materials. The artist, Emily Fuentes, is a local woodworker and gardener whose art is a synthesis of these two passions. With deep respect for the earth, she hopes to bring life and art into the home with little to no impact on our natural resources.

She holds a BFA in painting from C.C.A.C. and is pursuing a degree in Landscape Architecture at Merritt College. She has also studied abroad at Seika University in Kyoto, Japan.

As a gardener, landscaper and nursery professional, plants occupy Sarah's mind and seed themselves into her paintings.
Kelly Hackett is an Oakland based artist. She graduated from the California College of the Arts in 2011. Her paintings and sculptures are the result of investigations into the various types of goo, including but not limited to: algae, glycerine, bacteria, marine life, polymers, plaque, fat, plant material, soap, crusts of all kinds, cosmetics, geological formations, flesh, and wax.

This weekend will also kick off our new group art show, featuring work of four California textile artists; Julia Canright, recycledlovers, Lise Silva, and Lisa Spayde. These woman all create a variety of detailed wall hangings that focus on a variety of different techniques including; weaving, printing, wrapping, knot work, and more! This new show will be up at Resurrect from September 14th - November 14th. Stop by and check it out during our anniversary bash!
Julia Canright is a bag maker, block printer and SF native. She got her BA in History in Portland, OR and came back to San Francisco to explore a passion for art and design. She creates bold and graphic block printed and painted canvas bags, handmade in the Bay Area. She's committed to quality and craftsmanship with unique design inspired by traditional Indian, Japanese, and West African block printed textile design as well as modern and expressionist art. Her designs express a return to old-world craftsmanship with a fresh, modern aesthetic.
Jenny Martin is the main brain behind @recycledlovers. Just like herself, her brand has evolved. Small beginnings as a vintage online shop, turned into selling handmade items and offering creative design. Her wall hangings are something that were years in the making when she finally decided to take it on full time and quit her "day" job. She is constantly daydreaming about what to make next and every chance she gets, she takes time to create. Jenny feels that her work doubles as a very relaxing experience to sit and manipulate rope in beautiful ways.
Lise Silva is an artist living in Oakland, CA and working from her studio in Berkeley. Strongly influenced by meditation, mysticism, classic film, psychedelic illustration, surrealism, and art deco design, she explores the power of symbols through her work with Sacred Knots creating fiber jewelry and wall-hangings with handmade cord entwined in knot designs that serve as a metaphor for life experiences, dreams, and deep desires. In addition to knotting, Lise's fiber work encompasses sewing, cord wrapping, and tassel-making. Her handmade cord is a part of the unique aesthetic of her work. In a simple, meditative technique known as 'wrapping' a long, single thread wraps continuously down the entire length of the rope, the newly created cord is then knotted and emblazoned with tassels, beads or brass. Her work has been described as dreamy, feminine, mystical, and mysterious.
Lisa Spayde is a Northern California based fiber artist. Having grown up along the sandy shores of San Diego, she is inspired by her native landscapes of rich golden hills and the ever changing California coast. Lisa uses traditional tapestry techniques, along with foraged and re-purposed materials, to create textured woven wall hangings.
Spending much of her life searching for a meaningful creative outlet, Lisa tried her hand at everything from painting to jewelry making and knitting, finally stumbling upon her niche when she took her first weaving class two years ago. The textures she was able to create using a myriad of fibers and color palettes fulfilled her inner need to make. Taking classes from a variety of weavers inspired and influenced Lisa greatly to find her own continuously evolving craft.
Join us at the shop on Friday July 22nd, for an opening reception for our featured artist Lisa Ostapinksi. Lisa is an Oakland-based artist and art educator. She uses encaustic (beeswax) painting techniques with a wide array of mixed media including metallic leaf, oil paint, xerox transfers, antique lace, beadwork and embroidery. Lisa's current work explores themes of magic, sacred geometry, decoration, and the beauty of natural forms. For more information and to see some of her current and past work, check out Lisa's website or her Instagram: honeycombdaughter.
