NEW Shell Dining Chair: Now available at Aptos Cruz Galleries.
The Shell Chair is designed by the American designer Michael Dreeben and inspired by traditional craft practices in North India, particularly saddle making. Exquisite saddles have been produced in India for centuries and although some horse culture persists, it’s diminishing as India becomes more technologically developed. The Shell Chairs attempt to revitalize this skilled trade by providing leather stitching artisans with a global market for their craft and hopefully encourage them to pass it on to younger generations. The wooden frame is crafted from FSC certified wood with a water-based stain and respects the local environment.

NEW Artworks by Min Woo Bang: Now on display at Aptos Cruz Galleries.
Min-Woo Bang’s canvases explores the genre of romantic landscape painting. His latest series, ‘Storm In Paradise’, invites a deeper emtional response and engagement through mysterious and shifting lines of sight.
Bang captures nature’s transitional moods in a suite of breathtaking landscapes, engaging our senses with the emotional and aesthetic qualities of the land and sky that echo human moods. While nature remains his dominant source of inspiration, the artist’s differential viewpoints enhance the audience’s personal encounter with landscape. These landscapes are of no place in particular; rather, they evoke a sense of time passing and memory.
A selection of Min Woo Bang’s current works are currently on display and available at Aptos Cruz Galleries.
