In the Center Gallery the art of the book offers limitless possibilities to those working in this medium through the blending of form, materials, and content to engage viewers in a way not found in any other genre. Falling Open is an exhibition of handmade artists’ books, unbound books in boxes, wall-mounted books, altered books, sculpture, and book-inspired objects. The online opening reception will include live artist interviews and a live video walk-through of the exhibit.

The Project Space presents Life Work, an exhibition in honor of Andrew Romanoff’s lifetime of artmaking. The show includes a selection of his renowned Shrink Art, landscape photographs, wood sculptures, recent drawings and photographs of his ancestors. London-born Romanoff grew up on the grounds of Windsor Castle, where he lived with his family including his grandmother the Grand Duchess Xenia, who was the sister of Nicholas Romanoff, Russia’s last tsar. His family was given refuge by the British royal family, and after serving in the British Navy during the Second World War, Romanoff eventually made his way to the Marin County village of Inverness in the early 1970s. He is one of the founding members of Gallery Route One and has long contributed to the evolution and life of the gallery.

In the Annex is a new series of watercolor paintings by Bernie Schimbke. He explores the visual dynamics of water and pigment when they flow together as a medium. With the addition of intense chromium colors on textured papers, new surfaces encompass the pigment as they define the emerging images. Each painting is an attempt to harness the tsunami of water driving this process, one which at times seems to understand when to step back, and also when to more assertively define a particular form.
