“Beyond Baroque’s Artist-in-Residence debuts his latest paintings and prints.

Bob Branaman’sSun-Sept7-BeyondBaroque tremendous body of work includes etchings, paintings, films, books, and most recently a series of paintings and prints concerning regeneration and love. Bob was one of the innovative artists showing at the legendary Batman Gallery in San Francisco. His films include Ginsberg (1966) and Goldmouth (1965) starring Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

Cathy Weiss makes marks by drawing with her gouges on wood. She then prints, paints, and layers her images to respond to the physical, spiritual and psychological interstices we experience. In this new work she explores the ancient love poetry in the Song of Songs.
