Mercury 20 Gallery is pleased to present its annual summer group show Mercury Rising an overview of recent painting sculpture photography drawing and mixed media. The works in this show respond to fluctuating temperatures from the everyday poetics of summer heat to the disturbances of planetary climate disruption to the powerful dynamics of social and political movements. Mercury Rising charts the terrors and possibilities of change. We are especially pleased to present the work of three artists new to the gallery in 2011 Jody Medich Paul Mueller and Kerry Vander Meer as well as the work of our continuing roster of East Bay artists.
