Broker’s Building Gallery Group Show: The Pavillion of Pluralism
This September 21st, Friday at 6 PM – 10 PM, join us for the Pavillion of Pluralism, a group show at the Broker’s Building Gallery that explores a rich and diverse collection of images of the artists of the Broker’s Building Gallery as well as their guest artists. We will feature a range of works that include photography, abstract, figurative and more.
The Broker’s Building Gallery is the only grassroots art facility of its kind strategically near the main activity of Fifth Avenue. The building is an historical landmark of the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Society that dates to 1889 when Levi Strauss & Co. built it for the storage of goods. It’s amazing to imagine that when someone walks through the facility, it’s like time travelling to an era of California filled with Wyatt Earp gaming halls and dusty saloons in what was once San Diego’s red-light district.
Competitively located At the heart of the Gaslamp district, home to fine dining such as Cohn Restaurant Group and major nightlife companies like Petco Park, Hard Rock Hotel and RMD Group, the Broker’s Building is not far from the San Diego Convention Center which is home to a variety of events—especially the annual $100 million dollar revenue driving International Comic Convention.
Golden Glove Art Show
Latex, plastic, silicon, epoxy–Ramona of Romania delves into all of the artifices of our modern aesthetic. She explores the plastic fakeness of sex, love, work and relationships through the art that she produces. Her exhibit features sculpture made of latex protections, i.e. gloves, contraceptives, etc. She extrapolates meaning, character and sentiment from those little disposables on which we rely the most for our often most central and intrinsic, but conversely what are also our most fleeting needs.
In an era of disposable Tinder relationships, treatable conditions and casual correlations, Ramona offers a remorseless, clean and mature experience you can immerse yourself in without feeling guilty… without getting too wet either!
Ramona’s show is a private invitational show that will run in the Broker’s Building Gallery starting from August 26th and ending in a reception on September 15th form 5 PM to 11 PM. For show details, contact the artist by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Riding the wave of Marvel Studio’s groundbreaking blockbuster Black Panther, the creators Dr. Firyali Richmond, Keithan Jones of KID Comics and the Malcolm X Library Black Comix Day, the World Beat Center, QABPROSERV.COM and The Broker’s Building Gallery brings an exclusive AfroFuturist programming block for the spring and summer seasons.
This spring in May at Broker’s Building in the Gaslamp District will be held the AfroFuturism: #DreamTank2018. With an assembly of Pan African visionaries we’ll orchestrate a brainstorm of where we see ourselves in the near and distant futures. Exploring technology, sociology, design and art we’ll compile a series of presentations in an effort to realize an Afrotopia that will enrich ourselves with beauty, prosperity and hope as well as the world.
Then following in the summer, coinciding with San Diego International Comic Con, we’ll host a AfroFuturism Lounge open to vendors and attendees to see the newest creations of the African Diaspora and to participate in activities like Cosplay contests, awards, etc.

Splendid Fruit in oils by Jo Caldwell
This is a retrospective exhibition at the Brokers Building in the Gaslamp of the past thirty years of work by a San Diego artist Jo Caldwell. She has exhibited in invitational and juried exhibits all over Southern California. She states “ The contradiction of life lies in thinking that we live on a purely temporal plane, when in reality it is our thoughts and emotions and the choices that we make that determines our meaning. So I paint in a seemingly realistic manner but do a bit of dream patterning, couching reality in physical terms that become vehicles for symbolic inferences. The language that I use is personal to my own vision of the inner and outer spaces in which we all exist.” The exhibit runs from April 23 to May 12. There will be a Jazz opening from 6 to 9 on Thursday May 10. Brokers Building Gallery, 402 Market St. (Gaslamp District}
Jo Caldwell’s Bio
I grew up in a small pine-covered town in Massachusetts steeped in the writings of Emerson and Thoreau. As a teen-ager I was the school artist and a pilot.
Initially I was fortunate enough to study at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School with German Expressionist and encaustic painter Karl Zerbe. For four years I drew and painted the nude model. Whence my figurative work. There I was free to roam the corridors of a great museum and to learn the technical processes of oil painting while absorbing the history of creative expression. I was invited back for a fifth year of study but family problems prevented this from happening.
After living in virtual isolation for a number of years in a mountain rain forest of Costa Rica I ended up in San Diego, earning a BA in Visual Arts, with high honors, at UCSD. There I was immersed in art theory under the tutelage of an outstanding faculty. Patterson, Scanga, Rosler and Silva to name a few. I was subsequently accepted into the graduate program at Cal State Fullerton and received an MFA in Painting and Drawing in 1993. The following Fall I taught a class in Beginning Painting at CSUF.
Since then I have been a professional artist exhibiting in juried exhibitions in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, showing at the Galeria Otra Vez (East L.A), the California Center for the Arts, the Oceanside Museum of Art and the San Diego Museum of Art. I have had invitational exhibitions at the Downey Art Museum, the Irvine Fine Arts Center, MiraCosta College, and Southwestern College. For fifteen years I was represented by Orlando Gallery in Sherman Oaks and had paintings in the rental galleries of LACMA and the Laguna Beach Museum.
My work is somewhat autobiographical often casting friends and relatives as subjects for my oil paintings. But actually my subject is gender dictated and socially directed at our ignorant need to separate and distort the essential unity of the human experience. That is the undercurrent of my work.
Recently I have published three volumes of my work. On line my website is jocaldwell.com. I previously have had websites with SDAI, SDMAAG and Laguna Arts.
