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.
The Lioness Oracle AKA Alejandra León Wolfe Rocha will be reading tarot at the shop on Saturday 9/24 from 2pm - 6pm. Alejandra is a professional tarot reader living and working in Oakland, CA. The tarot reading cost is sliding scale, which means whatever you are able to pay ($20+). Make sure you check out our blog to ready her monthly forecast to see what the stars and cards have in store for you this month!

Stephanie grew up in a wooded rural area of Southern Oregon, so one can imagine that nature was a big part of her life from a young age. She didn't really realize how important her love of the natural world was until she moved to Oakland several years ago. The constant presence of mechanized society, and the sheer bulk of people in the Bay Area has made her think a lot more about the importance and strength of natural forces, and how she can connect to that power through her art.
Her art begins with collage elements that are cut and pasted from popular women's fashion and beauty magazines. As is true for many women, Stephanie realized that these types of magazines had a big influence on her ideas about femininity and sexuality as a teen. As adults we can recognize that those glossy advertisements are fake, but as a teen that wasn't so clear. By cutting up those images and using them in her drawings, Stephanie is able to transform them into new realities that include her respect and love for nature. Through these drawings, she's able to tap the universe within herself, and encourage others to look at their connection to the natural world too.

We are thrilled to feature an exhibition of Alexis Amann's new work entitled Amulet Paintings.The opening reception will be on April 21st from 6pm-9pm. The pieces in this show are all around the idea of paintings as amulets, as protection against or a charm for, the viewer. Most of the works in this show exist in complimentary pairs that both sides of the coin as what we need protecting from, often also needs to be protected itself.
For our Third Thursday event, the Lioness Oracle will also be offering tarot readings for a sliding scale. Please stop by Resurrect this Thursday and see Alexis' magical paintings!
Alexis Amann is an artist, illustrator, and educator living in the Bay Area. She studied painting at Portland State (B.A.) and the San Francisco Art Institute (MFA). In her free time she makes drawings and paintings populated by a host of weirdos including women, monsters, harpies, sentient houses, hags, octopuses, fish, mermaids, and other creatures of land and sea. Check alexisamann.com for more of her visual delight.
