EVOLUTION art show at Elder Gallery
Explore rich textures, abstract forms and the evolution of movement in the paintings of Susan Brenner and Chase Langford. These artists are constantly exploring and experimenting, but sometimes revisit earlier phases, or even come full circle, yet with new understandings of their foundations. Both facile with rendering and expressing an aliveness in their art, Brenner and Langford find ways to explore the mysteries of the world while fearlessly plunging into unknown territory and experimenting with ways in which to compose and express individuality. Both artists pull inspiration from the outer world, Brenner as she meticulously manipulates her own metaphorical tableaus, keeping them in a state of flux and Langford as he reinvents and abstracts forms he finds in different landscapes and geological strata. There is no final phase for Brenner or Langford – even in their mastery there is no endpoint to their evolution. Opening reception with the artists on Friday, September 7, 2018 from 5p – 8p.
Chase Langford has invented a distinctive visual language that is grounded in the natural and built environment while embarking into uncharted territory. His impactful depictions recall maps and aerial photography of sea coasts, mountains, farmland and cities through a calculated execution and highly refined draftsmanship.
Just as the West Coast Abstract Expressionists (1940 to 1970) found California’s striking landscape fertile ground, so does Langford as he draws upon his geographic environs both near and far.
Through his cartographic mastery, Langford contorts and synthesizes geographic elements, bringing forth paintings that are mysteriously familiar yet surprisingly unconventional. They challenge conventions of geography and landscapes, offering invigorating visions of space and place that transcend any specific locale, leading us to an exhilarating emotional experience.
Chase Langford is represented by galleries in: New York City, Seattle, Toronto, Napa Valley, Healdsburg, Charlotte, Maui, and Martha's Vineyard. is studio is in Los Angeles.
- Startups - Chris Sacca of Lowercase Capital Pt. 2- TWiST #295
Today on This Week in Startups, investor, entrepreneur and cyclist Chris Sacca of Lowercase Capital joined the program to discuss his investments in Facebook, Twitter, Uber and more. He also gave a candid account of how he hustled his way to the top. And, the interview was so incredible, we had to break it up into two episodes. Here is part two!

The California Republic was a short-lived, unrecognized state that, for a few weeks in 1846, militarily controlled the area to the north of the San Francisco Bay in the present-day state of California.
In June 1846, a number of American immigrants in Alta California rebelled against the Mexican department’s government. The immigrants had not been allowed to buy or rent land and had been threatened with expulsion from California because they had entered without official permission. Mexican officials were concerned about a coming war with the United States coupled with the growing influx of Americans into California. The rebellion was soon overtaken by the beginning of the Mexican–American War.
