Past Events:


We had a holiday party and pop-up sculpture show this past weekend (December 14th, 2014) in San Francisco.  A grand time was had by all.

In 3-D: Selected Art by Pacific Rim Sculptors Group
Art Ark Gallery - San Jose

1035 S 6th St, San Jose CA

What is the 3rd dimension . . . 
and why are we willing to pay extra to view a movie shown "In 3-D"? 
A screen typically gives us images with height and width . . .
but there is something about the 3rd dimension - depth - 
that draws our attention and makes us feel more involved, connected. . .  
It is my intention that the exhibition, "In 3-D" conveys that experience 
to the viewers at the Art Ark Gallery. 
- Lynne Todaro, curator
