Period & Style
In April 2008, GALLERY CRAWL takes in THE ART OF DIORAMA at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek. The exhibition presents twenty-three artists and as many worlds, ranging from no bigger than a bread box to room-sized. Using every medium known to man, including sculpture, painting, video and photography, these artists do more than put their imaginations on display. They create full immersive environments, exploring outer space, the inner mind, childhood memory and the forgotten corners of the Natural History Museum. The show features veteran diorama builders Michael McMillen, Helen Cohen and Davis + Davis and newcomers Tracey Snelling, Jeremy Mora and Misako Inaoka.
