Exhibitions by Carlos Villa, Katherine Sherwood
Anglim Gilbert Gallery is pleased to present Pagmamano, a solo exhibition of drawings and paintings by Carlos Villa (1936–2013) and Brain Flowers, an exhibition of paintings by Katherine Sherwood, both open by appointment only.
The exhibition's title, Pagmamano, taken from the traditional Filipino gesture of respect toward elders, references Villa's lifelong commitment to honoring his cultural and artistic heritage. A beloved educator and community figure in the San Francisco Bay Area, Villa's example empowered future generations of artistic voices to celebrate their culturally-specific visual traditions, personal identities, and lived experiences.
Brain Flowers will mark Sherwood's ninth solo presentation with the gallery. For over seven years, Sherwood's work has recontextualized still life painting tropes and Western art historical representations of the female nude.
