Welcome to Parabolic - a gallery exploring the

intersection of fine art, furniture design and the decorative 

arts, both vintage and contemporary. We feature works

from a select group of Fresno artists and designers, and

we show it within the context of a curated collection of

classic vintage modernist furniture and home décor.

Poetically, arches are powerful symbols.  They can be gateways opening onto new horizons, or portals into other realities. When arches function as cultural bridges, they become silent facilitators of the exchange of ideas, enabling understanding and empathy to exist between people with different points of view.   

 

That's why the idea of a parabolic arch resonates with me. It represents what lies at the heart of this business. It is at once a  gateway beckoning us to follow our dreams, and a bridge creating community by bringing people together in conversations ignited by art.

 

I invite you to join me in this adventure called parabolic, be it as an artist, collector, observer, contributor, or all  of the above.  So walk through the gate, venture across the bridge and  join the conversation!

Some of the most breathtaking bridges  in the world owe their strength and beauty to the parabolic arch.  Due to their geometry, parabolic arches can support great loads while retaining relatively slender, graceful proportions. They are structures that make their job look effortless and manage to look beautiful while doing it.
