On view now through August 20 is a major group exhibition of three living artistic stars. You won’t want to miss this.
Three artistic stars have aligned at John Pence Gallery in San Francisco, California this summer. As its title suggests, “Aristides, Valeri, Zanzinger” will feature extraordinary paintings by Juliette Aristides, Sadie Valeri, and Elizabeth Zanzinger.
Aristides is known for her bold and lively palette, and patrons can expect to encounter her famed still lifes and dramatic figurative works during the show. “Her work invites the viewer to share an inner world as she explores her identity through the roles of artist, teacher, historian and mother,” the gallery writes.

Working in the vein of Dutch Golden Age still life painting is Sadie Valeri. Her combining of sharply focused floral subjects with expressively worked backgrounds offers her audiences a beautiful melding of contemporary and historical artistic traditions.
Last — and certainly not least — are the lovely works by Elizabeth Zanzinger, whose lighter palette and bold brushwork provide an outstanding addition to be paired with Aristides and Valeri. The stunning works by all three artists will be available for purchase during the exhibition.
