-“The de Young specializes in art and a striking piece of sculpture was the anti-war installation model of a Cathedral, by Al Farrow, made out of old and decommissioned weapons and consisting of further materials such as guns, bullets, steel, glass, bone. It serves as a graphic illustration of the link between war and religion.”
-“Bay Area artist Al Farrow has an affinity for creating replications of various religious gathering spaces. This, of course, is not revolutionary. What is unconventional, however, is the medium he uses: gun parts. From the scope to the trigger, the handle to the bullets, the pins to the chamber, all pieces of the gun are utilized.”

The residency will end in a show at the Maccarone Gallery.
Images and artist statement from Stephanie Syjuco’s newest exhibition, “notMOMA,” at Washington State University.
February 25-March 22, 2010
“Made over the period of several weeks by myself and and dozens of WSU Pullman art students, this exhibition consists entirely of re-fabricated artworks “curated” from the permanent collection of New York MOMA. A fully handmade show, notMOMA attempts to bridge a gap in students' understandings of "high art" and invites them to access the works via their own do-it-yourself collective vision.
Whether considered copies, translations, or even mis-translations, all resulting works are unique expressions in their own right. As an illicit travelling exhibition “borrowed” from their collection, notMOMA creates a dialogue between WSU’s art department and an inaccessible, perhaps reluctant art institution located on the other side of the country.”

KQED Arts reviews Travis Somerville’s show, “Rededicated to the Proposition...”
“From the second you walk in the door at Catharine Clark Gallery, it's apparent that the title of Travis Somerville's newest body of work, Rededicated to the Proposition, a reference to the Gettysburg address, isn't meant as an activist's call so much as an ironic statement.”
Blog featuring work by Travis Somerville.
“Travis Somerville explicitly deals with race relations throughout the nation's history. Because of the time-specific imagery appropriated in his mixed media collages, he confronts the viewer with seemingly antiquated images and forces the viewer to consider them in the context of the contemporary moment.”
