Artist James Chronister

San Francisco painter James Chronister employs a labor-intensive, pointillist technique to achieve strikingly nuanced tonality and depth in his paintings. Armed with a tiny brush and guided by projected grids, he meticulously applies dots of black pigment onto a white ground until the images of snowy forest landscapes, palatial interiors and rock music legends magically emerge, reaching near-photographic veracity.

Piranesi, Rome and The Arts of Design

Considered the Michelangelo of the 18th century, Giovanni Battista Piranesi excelled in every facet of art in what was considered the center of the artistic world: Rome. The exhibition will showcase Piranesiís breadth of skill and innovation. Most notably, the Museum will unveil modern-day creations of the notorious sketches of the fantastical objects designed by Piranesi. Additionally, the Museum presents a virtual 3-D installation of the intoxicatingly bizarre blueprints of Piranesiís notorious carceri (prisons).
