Gallery I

Gallery hours: 2pm-6pm, Mon-Sat

Starting in 1970 Robert Gumpertz gained notoriety as a cartoonist when his work appeared in Playboy, Penthouse, Paris Match, London's Punch and the San Francisco Chronicle.  He has lived and worked in Paris and New York and now makes his home in California.
While his commerical work as a cartoonish and illustrator was appearing world-wide he began working on small fine art paintings, drawings and prints.  In the early nineties he started painting full time.  With his love of color and texture the transition from cartoonist to painter came about naturally.  He carries on in the tradition of George Grosz and William Gopper, other cartoonists who turned to painting.

Gallery II

by Jennifer Perlmutter
July 1st through July 31st
Gallery hours: 2pm-6pm, Mon-Sat

After childhood in Napa, California, and many years in the high-energy cities of Boston, New York and Los Angeles, artist Jennifer Perlmutter subtly balances the influences of nature and civilization in her work. She combines environmental character with urban features in a complex layering to create a push-pull of color, figure and texture.

With a lifelong interest in the creative merging of art and crafts, her career began with gilding, paint and other media. She produced chinoiserie, artwork and deep, layered finishes on high-end furniture. Much of this work has been featured in LA’s Pacific Design Center and in the homes of celebrities such as Ted Danson & Mary Steenburgen, Eddie Murphy and Burt Bacharach.

By 2001, Perlmutter devoted herself to fine art, exploring metal leaf, watercolor, acrylics and oils. She ultimately found her niche in mixed media on wood and canvas, which she continues to use as her predominant medium today.

The artist’s work has been collected internationally and shown in New York, Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Kansas. Her vision and strong command of application techniques led to commissions from several premier destinations including The Mirage and Hilton hotels in Las Vegas, Seoul’s Traum Haus and Toronto’s Casino Niagara.

Her art has also appeared in numerous feature films and television shows, such as Brothers and Sisters, War at Home, The Closer, Huff, Heroes, All of Us and more.

Jennifer Perlmutter lives and works in the east bay of the San Francisco bay area.
