Eight bridges connect the San Francisco Bay, so it is an apt name for a gallery platform that brings the Bay Area art world together.

Our mission is to maintain a vibrant gallery scene, despite restrictions on travel, celebrations and other larger gatherings. We want to support our artists by informing and entertaining curators, collectors and critics with potent online exhibitions of their work.

On the first Thursday of every month, we will launch 8 shows of artists relevant to the Bay Area. They may be working in this place, long considered an epicenter of change, or deeply engaged in the conversations the Bay Area holds dear, whether it’s related to technology, the environment, social justice or sexual identity, to name a few. In addition, each month will highlight the crucial work of a Bay Area non-profit arts organization as its beneficiary, with an initial donation led by Phillips.

Hashimoto Contemporary
Vessel

Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Vessel, a group exhibition inspired by the classical form and motif found throughout art history and contemporary art practices alike. Laden with symbolic meaning and layered with historical references, each of the artists’ works featured brings a fresh perspective to the archetypical form.

Utilizing a variety of mediums, from traditional ceramic to oil painting on canvas to plush textile works, each artist contemporizes the representation of the vessel and the materials used within the work. Anna Valdez throws and paints ceramic vases in electric patterns that are then incorporated into her still life oil paintings. Stephanie H. Shih meticulously hand builds everyday objects and transforms them into commentary of our society. Hilda Palafox’s stylized figures feel ancient and of the future, holding space between.

From highlighting the beauty in the every day utility, such as Josh Stover’s quiet table scene or Francisco Diaz Scotto’s saturated garden scapes, to the primal, ritualistic feeling work of David Heo or Laura Berger – each depiction is unique. Each vessel takes a new form, adding to the eternal legacy and containing the history that came before.

On view until July 31st at Hashimoto Contemporary San Francisco.

Benbanaste Gallery
Kemal Önsoy
Into The Unnavigated

Benbanaste Gallery is pleased to present Into The Unnavigated by Turkish artist Kemal Önsoy in his first Bay Area exhibition. This set of eight acrylic on canvas paintings are a glimpse of a larger body of work that he created in 2018. Önsoy, working in isolation for the previous two years, was driven to express the grief and despair he sensed regarding the future.

Known primarily for his work focusing on traces of existence and antiquity, Önsoy uses layers of color and texture to explore residues of the past and ruins of history left by the passage of time. His work has been featured in international exhibitions including the 25th Sao Paulo Biennale, the 44th Venice Biennale, the 4th and 7th Istanbul Biennales. Önsoy currently resides and works in his home country.

Pamela Walsh Gallery
Kerr Ashmore and Andrew Faulkner
Landscapes Abstractions

Pamela Walsh Gallery is pleased to present new paintings by Kerr Ashmore and Andrew Faulkner.

Kerr Ashmore is a contemporary British painter who is creating atmospheric renderings inspired by her feelings, memories and the landscape of Northern England, where she was raised. From an early age, she felt a strong acuity to light and sound, which led to her development as a visual artist and musician. All of her paintings begin with an emotion that is expressed in music or poetry, then articulated on canvas.  Although her paintings evolve into landscapes with great depth, they are rooted in emotional expression and inward exploration. “Growing up in North Yorkshire so close to the Moors and the cold North Sea, I was surrounded by beauty and inspiration. I have always been mesmerized by the ever-changing movement of light and dark that change the natural landscape and my emotional response to it.” This selection of new paintings are part of her debut exhibition, “The Comfort We Seek,” on view at PWG from July 10th – August 21st.

Andrew Faulkner is a contemporary painter based in Marin County. With a focus on abstract landscapes, cityscapes and architectural interiors, Andrew’s artistic practice is influenced by the vibrant colors and dazzling light of Northern California. Many of his landscapes use what he calls “invented color space” to break up the composition and achieve a depth of atmosphere that can be open to multiple interpretations. His most recent paintings from his Shoreline series are pushing even further toward abstraction. He says,  “I start with the horizon and the rest is up for grabs.”  By allowing the painting to evolve as an abstract composition, he can be free to compose without obligation to the subject.

Elise Ferguson, Joseph Hart, Pamela Jorden, Jean-François Lauda, Kirk Stoller, Ryan Wallace & Nancy White
Here All Along

Romer Young Gallery is pleased to present HERE ALL ALONG, a virtual group exhibition opening Thursday, July 21st and on view through Saturday, September 4th.

Whispering to us from exhibitions past, HERE ALL ALONG presents the work of seven longtime gallery artists: Elise Ferguson, Joseph Hart, Pamela Jorden, Jean-François Lauda, Kirk Stoller, Ryan Wallace and Nancy White. Curated from archives, HERE ALL ALONG invites the viewer to take a nuanced approach to the indeterminate and allow for the ineffable experience of beautiful abstraction.

“As symbol, or as the structuring of symbols, art can render intelligible — or at least visible, at least discussable — those wilderness regions which philosophy has abandoned and those hazardous terrains where science’s tools do not fit. I mean the rim of knowledge where language falters; and I mean all those areas of human experience, feeling, and thought about which we care so much and know so little: the meaning of all we see before us, of our love for each other, and the forms of freedom in time, and power, and destiny, and all whereof we imagine: grace, perfection, beauty, and the passage of all materials to thoughts, and of all ideas to forms.” – Anne Dillard

Everywhere we look we see evidence of those wilderness regions and the way artists bring them into plain sight. Ferguson explores the beauty of geometry, color and line; Hart intuitively dances between choreographed and happenstance gestures; Jorden colorfully plays with light, movement and time; Stoller quietly alluded to the subtlety of balance and the certainty of impermanence; Lauda chases the fugitive quality of marks and the residual traces of images; Wallace perpetuates the cycle of creation and destruction; and White engages a range of temperatures and sensations, suggesting surprisingly expansive space. These artists find inspiration and draw from the world’s constants – light, form, line, space, balance, movement, time, regeneration –  giving physical shape to the phenomenological experience of living in this place, here.

Together these seven artists offer the one possibility for the visible shape of things.

John Martin, Lenworth McIntosh, and David Tim
July Solo Exhibitions

pt. 2 Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by John Martin. Martin is known for his vibrant and whimsical interpretations of vehicles and tools, which are often anthropomorphized to a degree in which personality outweighs functionality. For his first exhibition at pt. 2 Gallery, Martin presents new drawings on paper and sculptures in wood and cardboard.

pt. 2 Gallery is pleased to announce The Stories I Tell Myself, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Lenworth Joonbug McIntosh. For McIntosh’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, he draws on memories of his native Jamaica. McIntosh explores the influence of American television, local music, and interpersonal relationships during his upbringing. Scenes of matriarchs, cowboys, and late nights on the town reveal the ways in which memory and imagination overlap, blurring the line between truth and discovery in pivotal moments of his life.

pt. 2 Gallery is pleased to announce “No place I’d rather be”, a solo exhibition of work by David Tim. For Tim’s first exhibition with the gallery, he presents a new series of works that demonstrate his unique experimentation in printmaking in which he integrates silk, charcoal and other fabrics in his detailed woodcuts mounted on Sekishu paper.  Thanks to this unique style, Tim portrays extraordinary tenderness and emotional depth in his scenes of Black joy and quotidian life.

Berggruen Gallery
Austin Eddy
A Place For Dreams

Austin Eddy explores the formal concerns of shape, light, color, and collage while embracing the complex and broad spectrum of human emotion in his semi-autobiographical paintings. The artist created this new body of work as stringent quarantine orders began to lift and the world drastically changed once more. The sentiments bound up in Eddy’s vivid paintings reflect this unfamiliar time…from solitude and anxiety to romance and harmony to tension and tragedy. Birds, which sprawl across each of the artist’s canvases, are the driving subject matter and motif for these conflicting sensations. Eddy presents his birds as a way to understand the strain engrossed in the human experience—whether we are caged, soaring through the sky, or something in between.

Marrying a skewed perspective with dimensional flatness, Eddy’s paintings allude to the Cubist movement that defined the early twentieth century. The artist also offers up a delicate balance between figuration and abstraction, mirroring the real and unreal ways in which he renders lived experience. Moreover, his myriad mediums (including oil, flashe, colored pencil, pastel, and paper) further support these dichotomies as the image becomes simultaneously flattened and fractured by referencing painterly collage. Eddy explains, “the goal is to create a harmonious image through tension.”

Austin Eddy was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1986 and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He earned his BFA in Painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2010. Recent exhibitions include Seeuferweg at Livie Fine Art, Zurich, (2021), Light Reflecting Distance at The Pit, Los Angeles (2021), Birds At Night at Althuis Hofland Fine Arts, Amsterdam, (2020), Cold On The 4th Of July at Institute 193 B, New York, (2020), and The Poet And The Muse at Knust Kunz, Munich (2020).

Terri Loewenthal and Paul Wackers
Selections from the "The Space We Take" and a preview of "Havasu Falls"

Eleanor Harwood Gallery is pleased to share selections from our current solo show with Paul Wackers, “The Space We Take” and a preview of our upcoming Fall solo show with Terri Loewenthal entitled “Havasu Falls”.

“The Space We Take” is the gallery’s seventh solo show with Paul Wackers, marking 15 years of working together. The body of work in “The Space We Take” was painted during the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020/2021 in its American epicenter, New York City. In his new works Wackers’ long-term inquiry into imaginative domestic tableaus, the tradition of still life painting and the creation of a personal visual lexicon takes on new meaning when set against the backdrop of social isolation and stay at home orders.

Loewenthal’s new body of work is shot in the Havasu Falls area at the base of the Grand Canyon inhabited by the Native American Hualapai tribe. Loewenthal developed a method to create single-exposure, in-camera compositions utilizing special optics developed to compress vast spaces into complex, evocative environments. Her usage of multiple vantage points and spaces in one image conveys the complexity both geologically and historically of the land she shoots. They are undeniably delicious images that celebrate the terrain, but she also nudges us towards thinking about the Environmental Personhood Movement, the granting of legal personhood to natural entities. We will present works from this series in her upcoming solo show “Havasu Falls”.

Mel Prest: COLOR UNFOLDING and Selections from the Back Room
Mel Prest, Emil Alzamora, Missy Engelhardt, Shingo Francis, Bumin Kim, Karen Margolis, Hadley Radt

K. Imperial Fine Art is thrilled to welcome Mel Prest in her inaugural show with us. COLOR UNFOLDING will be on view online and in the gallery from July 15th – August 31st, 2001.

Prest’s work employs phenomena of landscape and light. Recent paintings are inspired by scents found in nature, wind, light effects like penumbras and sun dogs, and energies that are experienced with non-optical senses. The color comes through like a flavor, or a touch or scent that emerges slowly through semi-transparent layers. The linework follows as a mark; building in tempo, shaking like a maraca or flowing like the waves coming toward shore. Between the spaces the perceived combinations often create an optical mirage that hovers above the painting’s surface.

In addition to natural influences the paintings collected in COLOR UNFOLDING incorporate the construct of time- how it was once charted as discrete moments or memories, rather than 24-hour, 7-day increments. This selection of works explores stages of color from a period that included isolation, political and social unrest and transformation. Where time slowed and warped, sped up and became disconnected from the traditional pace. Each painting reflects a moment or passage disconnected in this timeless juncture.

Art Drop
Tyler Eash

Our latest Art Drop is Tyler Eash’s Water Lilies, 2021.

 

Originally from the rural community of Marysville, California, Eash is currently developing an exhibition regarding the socio-economic concerns of their hometown. ‘Water Lilies,’ a new painting serving as illustration for a new video work, is featured within the interior of Loreum’s neighbor’s former home. The space, now a ruin and squat, displays the secret severity of poverty and addiction present within subaltern rural America.

 

Loreum, born Marysville, CA, 1988, works in the mediums of painting, drawing, sculpture, video, performance, choreography, music, architecture, writing, and theatre. They often work nomadically; developing work in London, San Francisco, Mexico, and France within the last year.
