Transmission Gallery is a contemporary gallery that promotes primarily regional and national figurative artists with an emphasis on Expressionism, California Funk and Socially Engaged Art. Transmission Gallery is a member of the Oakland Art Murmur and SF Art Dealers Association. In 2016, Transmission Gallery presented an invitational exhibition of Neon Art with four of the five artists’ work showing in at the Horton Gallery— Bill Concannon, Roger Daniells, Shawna Peterson, and Bruce Suba, with Linda Sue Price joining Transmission Gallery this year.These artists work in the realm of physics and alchemy, harnessing neon, argon and, sometimes, krypton in colorful display and controlled light. As veterans of working with these noble gasses, often in the commercial world, they've taken the opportunity to play with glass, chemical elements, power sources and other materials to execute their own creative visions.
