About

YEAR OF THE DRAGON:

CURATED BY SEVENTH SON TATTOO

111 Minna Gallery

 

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, July 13th 2024

 

A taloned, iridescent beast, great and fire-breathing: the dragon has been an enduring fascination of humans for thousands of years. Depicted in countless cultures and faiths from every corner of the globe, from ancient times through the centuries, they are ubiquitous in the legends and folklore that shape our histories and the stories we tell. We fear and revere this creature: it is both a destroyer and a protector, unknowable and unpredictable. An omen of good fortune and strength, the dragon also symbolizes water and is said to control the sea, the rain, and rivers. A master of the elements, it brings both fire and water, defying the laws of nature. We have been putting their mystifying shape on paper for as long as we’ve dreamt of them. 

 

Remembered by this year’s Chinese zodiac, we celebrate this thunderous beauty in a collaborative exhibit crafted by tattooers from the Bay Area and around the world. In “Year of the Dragon,’ we are excited to host a curated collection of illustrations, paintings and sculptures to celebrate this legend at 111 Minna Gallery. The exhibition will be the second zodiac-inspired exhibition at Minna gallery that has been curated by Luke Stewart, tattooer & owner of San Francisco’s Seventh Son Tattoo. The opening for his previous ‘Year of the Tiger’ exhibition in 2023 was a huge success, and we expect another great turnout this year!
