Pig, Pig

The first solo exhibition of work by Yang “Buurin” Yu-Zhen

The work presented in Pig, Pig highlights Yang “Buurin” Yu-Zhen's diverse subject matter – landscapes, portraits, and still lifes. The exhibition features works made with graphite on paper and watercolor.

Buurin is a dedicated member of the Creativity Explored community – she prefers the term ‘worker’ over artist. She is always quick to help teaching artists, gallery staff, and fellow artists in the studio. Her detailed artworks reveal her dedication to her craft, her Chinese heritage, and love of cultures all around the world.

The exhibition is viewable from the sidewalk anytime, day or night, during September. 

Artwork from the exhibition will be available for purchase by request. Interested patrons are invited to place an inquiry via email at gallery@creativityexplored.org

Sheng Lor | Patterns of Transformation

Aug 6 - Aug 28, 2002

Patterns of Transformation

a project by Sheng Lor
featuring
mural art by Chad Abbey
poetry by Renée Ya 

Patterns of Transformation is a refugee community story cloth project that leverages Hmong textile forms and visual language to explore memory, trauma, and healing. Using woven cloth, natural dyes, embroidery and appliqué, the project employs traditional textile materials and techniques to reimagine cloth as a medium for discourse, giving context as well as visibility to complex narratives among refugee and diasporic communities.




This exhibition was supported by the Alliance for California Traditional Arts through the Sankofa Initiative of the San Francisco Arts Commission, by Surface Design Association, and by the Journal Building Artist Collective.

She has held residencies at Recology San Francisco and the Headlands Center for the Arts in nearby Marin County.
