From 'San Diego Weekend Arts Events' (KPBS feature):
San Diego sculptor Sasha Koozel Reibstein is known for her fantastically shaped pieces, somewhere between otherworldly, alien and deep sea flora. Her signature use of drip forms manifests in pearlescent or shiny metallic blobs growing like lifeforms from the nooks and crannies of sculptures — her work has a sense of being suspended in time, and could somehow keep growing/oozing. In this exhibition at Quint's 7722 Girard gallery (formerly Quint ONE), Koozel Reibstein will show a series of new pieces.
Across the street in the main gallery (7765 Girard), a collection of works on paper by Manny Farber is already on view, plus, in the tiny The Museum Of____ in the back, you'll find an exhibition of wall-hung Kanthas, or textiles from Nirmala Seshadri-Jagannath's Amba Gallery.
Details: Saturday, Jan. 22 through March 5. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., but the Koozel Reibstein will be at the space from 1-4 p.m. Quint Gallery, 7722 Girard, La Jolla. Free.

From the gallery:
Are You Okay In The Dark? is a selection of recent ceramic sculptures by San Diego-based artist and curator Sasha Koozel Reibstein. Transformation and the sublime are ideas central to her practice, and in this new body of work, there is a concentrated exploration into that which is unknown in the cosmos, like black holes, magnetic pulls, and portals.
In these new sculptures and wall pieces, Reibstein’s objects often take the form of a portal with a central opening, which feel less like a specimen to be examined and more like a window into the unknown. They encourage a guttural, emotional response from a viewer, providing narrative but also room to consider expansive possibilities both in mind and body.
In the interest of limiting large groups, the reception for Are You Okay In The Dark? will be spread out throughout the day on Saturday, January 22. The gallery will be open from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. and the artist will be present from 12-4 p.m. We ask that all guests arrive wearing a mask.
In addition, there will be an artist talk on Saturday, February 26 at 11:30 a.m. at the gallery.
