Two art events celebrating two solo exhibitions of Rotem Reshef will happen on April 15 in Bakersfield.
to a special day celebrating my solo exhibition, "Vista," which is currently on view at the Bakersfield Museum of Art, and to the opening of my solo exhibition, “The Bright Side,” at RAM gallery, Bakersfield.
The event will open at 1:00 pm at the Bakersfield Museum of Art with a walkthrough and in-depth discussion of "Vista" with the BMoA curator, Victor Gonzales, and Rotem Reshef. Guests will be invited to participate in a cyanotype printmaking workshop from 1:00-4:00 pm and to stop by the "Panorama Vista" and explore the view the exhibition reflects on.
The solo exhibition, “The Bright Side," will open at RAM Gallery at 11:00 am with a reception event 3:00-5:00 pm.
“Vista" reflects on the local "Panorama Vista" and comments on the oil industry's presence in the local landscape and socio-economical structure of the community, alongside the efforts of different local foundations to restore the habitat.
RAM gallery is a new “Chelsea style” contemporary art gallery in Bakersfield, founded by Rachel McCullah Wainwright. The exhibition features two scrolls painted in Bakersfield and some paintings made with nature and reflecting upon it.
Get insights into the creative process of Rotem Reshef as she discusses her work in "Vista," a reflection on the coexistence of the Panorama Vista Nature Preserve and the city's industrial elements within the landscape of Bakersfield, CA. There will also be an opportuinity to ask the artist questions about her work, process, and the museum exhibition.
As part of the ticketed price guests will be able to participate in an art project inspired by the work of Reshef and led by a museum art educator.
