With its high quality exhibitions, constantly shifting every month, Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco is one of the galleries that sets the standard in the field of exhibition programming. After a successful John Wentz’s exhibition, Hashimoto Contemporary will be the proud host of their first Summer Group Show featuring a diverse selection of contemporary artworks created in various disciplines. This exhibition is set to be one of the highlights of the season, both in range of works on display and also in their variety.

Summer with Hashimoto Contemporary

For this summer, Hashimoto Gallery has gathered a multi-disciplinary group of artists who will put on display their latest artworks made in diverse and distinct techniques. Even though this exhibition might look eclectic in its selection, we need to have in mind that its main idea isn’t just simple interconnection of artistic practices, through their common themes and motifs. It is rather an adventurous exploration of boundaries of the contemporary art universe. From the smallest sculpture to the greatest mural these artists are showing us that there are no limits to the artistic creativity, and contemporary art still holds the power to surprise and amaze spectators. The exhibition will feature both local and international artists, gallery favorites and those visiting for the first time. Each of them will bring their latest creations.

Summer Group Show will also present artists new to the Gallery: Aaron de la Cruz, designer who combines graffiti technique with illustration, Erin M. Riley, tapestry weaver and large form textile artist, Derek Weisberg ceramic-sculptor and Drew Leshko, sculptor known for his detailed miniatures of common objects.
