Join us for our 14th Annual Holiday show and Party:
Saturday, December 1, 2018
5:00 PM 9:00 PM
Shibumi Gallery presents our fourteenth annual holiday show, Curated Color.
Inspired by a recent documentary on the Belgian fashion designer Dries Van Noten, Curated Color will mix the beautiful with the unexpected to create a fresh, artful vision. For this show we will be grouping pieces in the gallery by color and texture rather than by artist and accenting these collections with colored fabrics and flowers. Imagine groups of rusts and reds or aquas and greens combined with woven, spiky and fringy textures and patterns. Shown alongside the jewelry will be works by printmaker Deborah Sibony, clothing by Ocelot, and perfumes by Sensate offering you an array of curated color and scents for your holidays.
We are very grateful for our dynamic community of Shibumi artists and the lovely, warm people it attracts. Please join us on Saturday Dec. 1st 5-9 pm for an evening of beauty, cheer, wine and light bites. We will be donating 10% of the evening’s proceeds to the California fire aid relief and the ACLU. We look forward to seeing you all!

Deborah Sibony’s aesthetics are rooted in her North African heritage and formative years growing up in Italy. Evoking memory and imagination, her work reflects the duality of tradition and modernity and explores physical and cultural boundaries – what crosses over and connects, what is repeated and what vanishes.
Ocelot Clothing is inspired by culture, landscape and tradition as well as by plants, the colors they yield and by the body and its relationship to nature. When layered, Ocelot becomes art on the body; moving, fluid and functional. Each garment goes through a several day process to create the dyed itajime patterns on natural fibers. All of Ocelot's clothing is hand-dyed in the Ocelot studio in Oakland.
Sensate Perfumes is an aromatic line driven by the senses, beauty, mystery and artistry of Jana Cerny. Her interest and work in healing the body and spirit has inspired her alchemy of natural botanicals. Through the ritual of application Jana believes we can draw forth our deeper selves which form part of a wide web of archetypes. Jana has created ‘Shibumi’ a scent inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of a subtle and unobtrusive beauty. This scent is a complex layering of patterns, textures and nuance that draw forth the world. Jana will also feature a small selection of her natural scents along with bath salts and body oils.
