PALO ALTO, CA.- Dana Harel: Between Dreams and Nightmares features work by San Francisco artist Dana Harel. Organized by Laguna Art Museum, the exhibition consists of fifteen mixed-media drawings of animal and human figures. Harel describes the unusual process she employs as “a hybrid methodology that includes sculpture, drawing, photography, and printmaking.” Her multi-layered works reflect the messiness of war and its effects on survivors, drawing on the artist’s personal relationships to the men in her family and ties to military life:

“As an Israeli female soldier, a daughter of a soldier, a wife of a soldier, and a mother of a young sensitive male, I have witnessed men in their most intimate and tender moments, sometimes in the most unexpected of places. I draw on this experience and perspective in my work, sifting through the memories and truths that have shaped me as a woman…”

Dana Harel was born in 1970, raised in Tel Aviv, Israel, and works in San Francisco. She received her Bachelor of Architecture from California College of the Arts. Her recent solo exhibitions have been at Gallery Wendi Norris in San Francisco and Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in Herzliya, Israel. Harel’s work has been included in numerous group exhibitions at Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito; the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art in San Jose; Napa Valley Museum in Napa, and Root Division and Gen Art, both in San Francisco.

The Palo Alto Art Center is a place to discover art. See, make, and be inspired because everyone is an artist. Created by the community, for the community in 1971, the Palo Alto Art Center provides an accessible and welcoming place to engage with art. The Palo Alto Art Center serves approximately 70,000 people every year through a diverse range of programs.
