About the Exhibition: Luminous The works selected by juror Danielle Fox capture the elusive magic of the word, “luminous.� They feature artwork that is shimmery, sparkling, glistening, lustrous, & incandescent. Be inspired by these pieces filled with radiant power that blaze against the encroaching darkness of winter.

About Arc Arc Studios & Gallery features ten artist studios, a 1,000 sq. ft. art gallery, two smaller galleries and an art education center, along with the Kearny Street Workshop office, the Studio Fine Artist Network office and VEGA Coffee kiosk. Arc is located at 1246 Folsom Street, between 8th and 9th streets in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood.

About the Juror: Danielle Fox, Slate Contemporary Gallery, Oakland, has over twenty years of experience as an art historian (PhD, Northwestern University), writer, editor, independent curator, Deputy Director of Business Development at Sothebys in London, and communications and project manager for Artakt Art consulting in London. Danielle founded SLATE contemporary gallery in Oakland in 2009, and SLATE Art Consulting with Shelley Barry in 2013. These positions have allowed her to develop relationships with artists all over the Bay Area, to curate over sixty-five temporary exhibitions in both gallery and office environments, to advise both commercial and private clients regarding permanent acquisitions, and sales at auction.

Juror’s Statement: When I think of luminosity, I think of something that is glowing from within. A luminous glow evokes a sense of awe and wonder, as it suggests that a hidden source of energy is at work. Luminosity is not a thing in the world, but rather a sensory experience and emotional response. To recreate this kind of metaphysical experience with an object (and at their most banal, all the artworks in this show are objects, whether a painting, photograph, or sculpture) is, I believe, a skill of the highest order when it comes to art. Now mind you, western artists have been transfixed by this goal at least since early Byzantine painting, and since then many approaches have become very clichÊ. Unfortunately, when we see a trope used too often in art, the wonder and awe tend to diminish. I hope that the group I have offered presents diverse approaches to luminosity, including a variety of styles and media, while still feeling very contemporary. - Danielle Fox, Slate Contemporary Gallery, Oakland
