ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens

Reflecting the heroic spirit of Teddy Roosevelt’s provocative “Man in the Arena” speech, ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens creates captivating spaces that celebrate the work of over one hundred emerging to internationally renowned artists who fearlessly express authenticity and integrity their work.

“It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
- Theodore Roosevelt

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens’ uniquely beautiful art and design venues feature contemporary art and sculpture, as well as finely-edited collections of furnishings, objects and curiosities dating from the 18th century to the present.

NONSTOP POP
January 15-31, 2020

“Pop Art looks out into the world. It doesn't look like a painting of something, it looks like the thing itself.” - Roy Lichtenstein

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens invites you to celebrate NONSTOP POP, a solo exhibition by local Sonoma County artist Brett Hammond. Exploring his own intrigue in satire and romance through pop art traditions, Hammond’s paintings pay homage to the distinctive and famous art genre. The dramas in his paintings capture wine country’s quirky and critical joie de vivre.

Inspired by the unforgettable style of pop art, he started working on several panels at once producing bold imagery and bright color palettes. Hammond redefined his content using parody and tongue in cheek one liners narrated in the character’s speech bubbles. Wine country culture is illustrated humorously through love dynamics of self, romantic partners and luxury experiences. His stimulating methodology strongly integrates pop art’s unique and recognizable punch creating a NONSTOP POP.  

Join ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens and Brett Hammond as we celebrate his new solo exhibition, NONSTOP POP.
