AS YOU SEE IT is an exhibition featuring the artwork of Bay Area artists Juliette Choné and Kelley O’Leary. This collection of work explores the concept of human perception and our visual digestion of the world around us, posing questions related to self-awareness and blurred boundaries, as influenced by culture, society and our environment.
The Gallery is open Monday-Friday, 11AM-8PM.

Create a seasonal color palette from an abundance of waste and weeds. Inspired by recipes from Sasha’s latest book Natural Color you will learn to make a full range of natural dyes from by-products of your favorite meal, farmer’s market, or even ingredients found in your very own backyard or urban sidewalk. In the world of design, often influenced by seasonal “color stories,” you’ll be awed and amazed at how easy it is to curate a truly unique and authentic color palette made entirely from local and seasonal sources.

The Pinch Pot technique is one of, if not the oldest method in the world by which humans have made ceramic vessels. This ancient technique allows the tea bowl creator to displace clay from the interior of the mass and move it out from the center in order to create volume. In this workshop, students will create a handheld personal tea bowl that can be used for warm or cold beverages.
with Kelley O’Leary
In this workshop, artist Kelley O'Leary will demonstrate an image transfer technique to print patterns on clothing. We will be printing on fabric, but the technique learned can translate to many other materials, including paper, textiles and wood. Students will leave with an original hand printed outfit!

Take a step back in time and learn to make traditional and nourishing soaps. Indulge in a "slow body care" movement. In this class, you will be shown how to make high-quality cold processed soaps using local grass-fed beef tallow, sodium hydroxide, local extra virgin olive oil, herbs and organic essential oils.
Palette Gallery invites you to celebrate the opening of NEW GROWTH, an exhibition featuring the work of Bay Area artists and the interconnectivity of food and art.
Palette opened its doors with the first public showing of the work of Peter J. Hemsley earlier this spring with great review. A chef by trade and overall artist by passion, Hemsley works from sketches, historical record, memories, taste, smell and curiosity to render his creations in the art studio and in the kitchen.
Chef Peter J. Hemsley offers two menus (the Chef a Menu and the Vegetable Menu) of nine courses for this fine dining popup dinner. The Chef created a colorful veggie menu with summer accent, and a Chef menu around beautiful local products from his personal network of purveyors. Inspired by Palette Studio/Gallery, art and cuisine come together on the plate.
Palette opens its gallery space with the first showing of work by Peter J. Hemsley. We welcome the public to join us during this art-filled weekend in San Francisco. Tickets include entry, bites and first glass of bubbles as well as the opportunity to paint alongside local artist Nathan Richard Phelps.
