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.

Art Drop
Dan Miller

Our latest Art Drop is Dan Miller’s acrylic painting on paper. Click inquire to purchase. All proceeds benefit the artist and Creative Growth, this month’s institutional beneficiary.

 

Dan Miller’s artwork reflects his perceptions. Words and images are repeatedly overdrawn, creating ink layered masses that hover on the page to the point of obliteration and destruction of the ground. Each work contains the written recording of the artist’s obsession with objects like light bulbs, electrical sockets, food and the names of cities and people. Miller’s process transforms text into graphic elements, and employs an abstract visual language that is used as a tool for inquiry and expression.
