Dan Fontes produces murals, paintings, photographs and has created dozens of works of public art throughout Northern California. He grew up in Oakland and received an AS (Earth Sciences) from Merritt College and BFA from Cal State Hayward (now Cal State Eastbay).  He is perhaps best known for the “Giraphics” (1983) murals located beneath the 580 freeway at Oakland Avenue and the “Animurals” project (1985) as well as the “Lake Merritt Mural Project” (1987-88) formerly at 27th and Broadway. Two of his murals were gifts to Oakland’s two sister cities Fukuoka, Japan (1992) and Dalian, China (1994) where he taught & conducted papermaking workshops. Fontes, a founder of the non-profit group Renaissance of Papermaking, taught classes in the Oakland public schools and throughout Northern California for many years.  Dan has been longtime volunteer board member of various arts organizations over the years including Renaissance of Papermaking, Pro Arts, Lillian Paley Center for the Visual Arts, the Eastbay Depot for Creative Re-use, Health through Arts-signs of Recovery and most recently the Pacific Pinball Museum of Alameda.  More information at https://localwiki.org/oakland/Dan_Fontes

About the exhibit…

In April 2013, Dorothy Gantenbein started f8dontwait.com with her photo group comrades of over a decade.  Each day, in prescribed order, one of the nine artists post an image that responds to the previous day’s post.

The Conversation Exhibit brings F8 to the physical world.  A three + year conversation in the language of imagery – of content, form, color, mood and more.

Check out the blog www.f8dontwait.com and then see it in print.

In a unique installation, artists  William Bishop, Dorothy Gantenbein, David Hibbard, Susan Honda Eady, Robert A. Kato, Patricia McClung, Katie Parquet, Maude Pervere and Rachel Phillips share their daily conversation.  Through their diverse visual voices, conversation threads appear and disappear – agree and disagree – laugh and cry.

Exhibit run through September 3, 2016.  Exhibit hours:  11am-3pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.  Adobe Art Gallery is located at: 20395 San Miguel Ave, Castro Valley, CA
