This past weekend in Culver City, Thinkspace Gallery opened the great group/themed exhibition, The Gilded Age, featuring the works of Aaron Horkey, Esao Andrews, and Joao Ruas. We did an entire feature on the exhibition in our September 2015 issue, which you can read here, and on Saturday night, we headed to the opening to see the people, see the art, and get gilded.

The Gilded Age, as coined by Mark Twain, rose from the settling smoke and blood-soaked fields of the Civil War. Many factories built for military endeavors were repurposed for new manufacturing. Industry developed at a fierce pace. Veins of railroads rippled across the musculature of the country. Along with demand for gold, steel and oil, this created a significant rise in America’s economic wealth. By the early 1900s, the US became the largest industrial nation in the world. Immigration swelled; wealth, however, belonged to the few. Ruthless business men controlled it, creating social and economic disparity, where chasms of poverty were obscured by a golden glow.

We are proud to kick off the Fall season with a cover story on San Francisco-based fine artist Richard Colman. Richard's work has evolved and expanded so much since we last spoke to him in 2010, and his newest body of work continues to be an exploration on the way we as humans communicate and interact. We spent a few weeks with Richard in his studio in SF as well as around the city he calls home to catch a glimpse at the intricate details of the working artist's life.
