NIAD artists on KALX radio

Virtual Event

On Friday, July 29th, DJ Surface Tension invites KALX listeners to tune in to an ear-opening conversation with the "sounding artists" of NIAD Art Center as they discuss their most recent release Sounding Artists R Sweet and So R You.  Featured in this conversation are artists Luis Estrada, Christian Vassel, and Raven Harper. This studio compilation captures the rawness of NIAD's community artists at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.

NIAD Gallery Exhibition // “With You in Mind / Contigo en Mente,” organized by Saif Azzuz

NIAD Art Center 551 23rd Street, Richmond, CA, United States

NIAD Annex Exhibition // “Works by Nathan Lam”

NIAD Art Center 551 23rd Street, Richmond, CA, United States

This exhibition features works created over the past five years by NIAD artist Nathan Lam. A survey of the artist's practice, this collection includes works on paper that predate his time in the NIAD Studio. From charcoal still life drawings, to comic style illustrations branded with his signature "Lamic", and generously applied acrylic paintings of mountains inspired by a summer trip to Alaska. We offer a look into the different ways Nathan Lam works.
