Dear Friends,

Welcome to the blog for the Marcia Wood Gallery. This new blog is our way of staying in touch with you in a more personal manner than we can do on our website (though we hope you’ll visit it, too). Since the blog is new, it will surely evolve. For now, we’ve got updates on what our artists have been doing—we’re posting new information weekly—and what we’re doing as a gallery in terms of fairs and travel. Eventually we hope to include interviews with our artists, and some first-person pieces, maybe even special projects, by our artists and gallery friends.


If you’re going to be in New York at the end of the month, come by and say Hey. We’ll be at the Pulse Fair, booth #I-12.

Amanda Hughen

Here is what happened with Amanda Hughen in 2007:

She had solo shows at Galerie Immanence, in Paris, France; Johansson Projects in Oakland, CA; and at the Marcia Wood Gallery. A collaborative project with Jennifer Starkweather and commissioned by the San Francisco Arts Commission was featured in 24 large kiosk posters throughout downtown San Francisco for 4 months in 2007. Electric Works, in San Francisco, created limited edition prints of the collaborative works and exhibited them in July.

Amanda was in group shows at the Triton Museum of Art, ("Drawing: Visions, Surfaces and Beyond") in Santa Clara, CA; at the Oakland Museum of California at the Oakland Airport, ("Convergence") in Oakland, CA; and Electric Works ("Civil Twilight") in San Francisco.

Her work was featured in a catalogue published by the San Francisco Arts Commission: "Between above and below: Amanda Hughen and Jennifer Starkweather".

Amanda's work was reviewed in Art & Antiques, the Atlanta Journal ConstitutionRuby Mag (Buenos Aires), the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and was on the cover of Artweek

She was a guest lecturer at California College of the Arts.

Amanda's work has been acquired by individuals and corporate collections, including Genentech, Charles Schwab, and Barclays Global Investors.
