Wishes for the New Year

February 10th-15th we will be holding "Wishes for the New Year" by Abacus Row, a pop-up conceived around traditions and rituals of ushering in good fortune into the new year. For the six days leading up to the Lunar New Year, our doors will be open. Regardless of whether you celebrate the holiday, we invite you to come in. We've strived to create an informative (translated) experience by offering a selection of goods with symbolic meaning to bring home and to gift. Pick up florals like quince blossoms that represent prosperity, enjoy treats like candied lotus seeds that represent a full wallet, and join us for a round of bo cua ca cop (a popular Vietnamese game played during the new year).

Opening reception with artist Leah Tumerman

Opening reception with artist Leah Tumerman

From a studio space in Oakland, CA, Leah Tumerman carves out narrative scenes on canvas, taking cues from intuitively applied under-paintings. Working predominately with highly pigmented acrylics, Leah watches for the emergence of figurative subject matter and then edits, often utilizing drawing materials, towards an oblique finish. She revels in the implied relationship between forms based on physical posture and placement alone. Using playful symbolism and a touch of make believe, the finishing details speak to notions of sisterhood and communalism, but also whisper of loneliness. Leah explores womanhood striving to create scenarios of connection and inclusion. She riffs on the notion of inclusion itself, employing situations towards a poetic understanding of intersectionality.

In Leisure, Leah ponders the connection between 'free time' and privilege. The work examines unavoidable hustle, pause as necessity, pause as statement/rejection, and a vulnerable desire for belonging throughout. Join us for an opening reception on January 12, 2018 from 6-8pm.

Delightful + thoughtful refreshments provided.

Illuminate - Winter Wellness Workshop

Taught by Lauren Kaneko-Jones

In the depths of the darkest time of the year, it is important to slow down and take time to find the light we have within us.

Rather than up-keeping the norms – of busy schedules, intensive work-out routines and a never ending to-do list.

Spend an evening with Lauren Kaneko-Jones, seasonal wellness educator and licensed acupuncturist to get hands on learning on how to support yourself through this season.

Hoshigaki Workshop
Nov
19
1:30 PM13:30

Hoshigaki Workshop

Learn the art of hoshigaki, an ancient Japanese persimmon hand-drying technique, in a workshop taught by Maggie Spicer. Hoshigaki are dried hanging in open air, unlike commercially dried fruits, which are dried in dehydrators. The persimmons dry for 40 days, during which you'll want to keep a close eye and massage them daily.

In this workshop, you will learn how to select, peel, hang, and massage the persimmons until they become delectably sweet, chewy, moist, and perfect for gifting! 

The class will culminate in a celebratory Japanese aperitif, and each participant will be provided with a box of persimmons and a pole to use at home in the drying process. Please bring an apron and a sharp pairing knife.

Seats available: 10

$75 per person. Register for the workshop.
