I am happy to share that I have a 2 page feature in volume 2 of “Artists of the Bay Area,” a book published by Jen Tough Gallery. It is the first time my work has been presented in a hard cover edition, and it was an honor to be included with so many talented artists in my region. Below are some images from the book along with a link to Blurb where you can preview the entire publication.

I am thrilled to share that my work was reviewed in DART International Magazine by D. Dominick Lombardi as part of the group online exhibition “BOUNTY” through Rhombus Space. “BOUNTY” will be available to view on the Rhombus site through November 30, 2021. Below are a few excerpts and links from the review along with a screenshot of my work included in the exhibition. The show featured 8 wonderful artists and I feel so honored to have been a part of this wonderful project curated by Katerina Lanfranco. Special thanks to fellow artist Etty Yaniv for inviting me to participate!
Excerpt from the article: “Holly Wong’s beautiful mixed media works immediately brought to mind Frank Stella’s prints from the early 1990’s that were inspired by the cigar smoke rings he blew, captured, computerized, then turned into 3D renderings. In both instances, with Wong and Stella’s compositions, there is this seemingly endless level of movement and gesture that is clearly amplified by attention-grabbing color and graceful line.”
I am so thrilled that San Francisco Bay Area art writer and critic DeWitt Cheng had a chance to visit my solo exhibition at SLATE Contemporary, in Oakland, CA recently. Below is his wonderful and insightful review as featured in the May 15, 2021 Visual Art Source Weekly Newsletter. My exhibition is up through May 29, 2021 and you can view more works at:
This is me early in the morning working on “Phoenix.” Getting up early means complete concentration. 😀 I needed to draw on both sides of this 11 foot installation and this was the only way! This piece was both a psychological and physical test for me. Sometimes the challenge of working this large felt overwhelming but ultimately I got there one day at a time!
View this installation on Saturdays at Slate Contemporary Gallery in Oakland, CA. They are open from noon-5pm and weekdays by appointment. The show is up through May 29th! ❤🌷
I am so happy to be included in the August 2020 Installation art edition of Under the Bridge magazine. This is an amazing selection of ambitious work that I am so grateful be among. You can subscribe here: https://www.underthebridge.online/issues
Works featured above include “Spiral Dance” and “Mind/Forest” which were were works I created in 2020 and 2018 respectively. They involve elements of drawing, drafting film and fiber and reflect my desire to create immersive, complex environments of female energy and power.
