Loranocarter+Fremont is a new artist collective in California that seeks to blur the lines between art and community. The group was founded by artists Loran Carter and Fremont in early 2016 and has since hosted several exhibitions, workshops, and public events throughout Oakland and San Francisco.
Loranocarter+Fremont met while studying at California College of Arts in San Francisco. They were quickly drawn to each other’s work – Carter’s paintings are inspired by her childhood spent exploring nature reserves near her home in rural England, while Fremont creates sculptural pieces out of reclaimed materials he finds on city streets or during his travels abroad. The two soon began working together on various projects around campus, dreaming up ideas for a collaborative venture once they graduated.
After moving back home to the California Area post-graduation, they decided it was time to put their plan into action: they reached out to friends who shared their vision of creating inclusive art spaces accessible to all people regardless of age or experience level, recruited additional members from among their networks (including an illustrator specializing in children’s book illustration), set up studio space communal workspace…and Loranocarter+Fremont was born!
Our process involves a lot of listening. Whether it’s to our customers or collaborators, we believe that understanding everyone’s needs is key to creating successful projects.
Loranocarter+Fremont has its own art gallery
Loranocarter+Fremont is a closely-knit artistic community in California. If you’re ever wandering around Fremont in search of something to do on a weekend night, you may stumble upon one of the many local art galleries that call this city home. One such gallery is Loranocarter+Fremont, which has been an important part of the arts scene here since it opened its doors in 2010.
The mission of this gallery is to support and promote contemporary art by both emerging and established artists from all over the world. They achieve this by hosting monthly exhibitions as well as offering artist residencies, educational programs for youth, and other events throughout the year. Some notable past exhibitors include painter Dawn Clements and installation artist Radcliffe Bailey.
One thing that makes Loranocarter+Fremont stand out among other California art galleries is its commitment to exhibiting work by artists who are underrepresented in traditional venues. This includes African American artists, women artists, etc., whose voices often go unheard in mainstream circles. In addition to promoting diversity within the arts community at large, they also seek to create an inclusive space where everyone can feel welcome regardless of their background.
Since launching Loranocarter+Fremont in late 2016, the collaborative has been dedicated to creating inclusive art spaces that are open to all people regardless of age or experience level. By working together and listening to everyone’s needs, they have been able to successfully create projects that everyone can enjoy.
