Preview: “Neufolk Revival” at LeQuiVive Gallery

Curated by Max Kauffman (full disclosure: Kauffman occasionally contributes to Hi-Fructose), the upcoming group show, "Neu Folk Revival," at LeQuiVive Gallery in Oakland celebrates the handmade qualities of art. From Souther Salazar's kaleidoscopic watercolors to Zio Ziegler's Cubist-inspired compositions to Katy Horan's obsessive depictions of textiles, the work in the show draws from a variety of folk art traditions and puts them into a contemporary context. The artists in this show eschew perfectionism, instead relishing the happy accidents of their creative processes. "Neu Folk Revival" will be on view October 5 through November 2. Take a look at a preview of the show after the jump.
