Bankers Hill, a neighborhood considered one of San Diego’s epicenters for arts and culture, is no stranger to fine artwork,exceptional cuisine and art-savvy residents. On September 21, The Park, Bankers Hill brought these three elements together during “An Evening with Quint Gallery.”
As a celebration of contemporary art, Quint Gallery provided The Park with work from renowned artists including Kim MacConnel, Zak Ové and Thomas Glassford. More than just great conversation starters, the collection of unique pieces served as an accompaniment to the luxury and character of the space itself. Homeowners, neighbors and gallery partners dined on delicious bites from Parc Bistro-Brasserie as they visited and admired the art.
“We knew Quint Gallery was the ideal partner for this event. The gallery’s high quality pieces perfectly complement our homeowners discerning tastes and The Park’s luxurious architecture and design,” said Amber Frankhuizen, VP of Sales and Marketing at Zephyr.
Beyond all of the wine, cheese and photo booth fun, attendees admired the numerous contemporary pieces provided by Quint Gallery. Founded by gallery owner Mark Quint in 1981, Quint Gallery has presented over 250 exhibitions during the gallery’s thirty-four years of business. An icon in the San Diego art scene, Quint Gallery graciously curated a selection of photographic and sculptural artwork at the event. Among the pieces on display, Zak Ové’s “DP27” emerged as a crowd favorite. This colorful arrangement of doilies speaks to Ové’s signature style, where his work often reflects his Trinidadian and Irish heritage, while incorporating a variety of materials.
Other artwork present included Thomas Glassford’s 2015 “Orchid (Sunset).” While the artist is most known for his sculptures created with dried gourds, the gallery presented a unique Glassford piece incorporating mirrored plexiglass and anodized aluminum. Additional pieces on display included Lee Materazzi’s 2017 “Ball Pit,” “Not a Through Street,” and “Swings.” These photographs are based on everyday life, explains the artist. “I’m interested in our ability to imbue such everyday practices and spaces with meaning,” says Materazzi.
All art from “An Evening with Quint Gallery” is available for purchase, with select pieces on display at The Park, Bankers Hill in the coming months. See below for photos from the event and click here for photobooth photos, provided by Pixter
