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.

Gallery Wendi Norris
María Magdalena Campos-Pons and Chitra Ganesh

Gallery Wendi Norris is pleased to present new works by María Magdalena Campos-Pons and Chitra Ganesh. 

Campos-Pons’ Descending Angels are the newest works in Campos-Pons series, Un Pedazo del Mar (A Piece of the Sea). The works explore notions of transformation and spirituality, as well as the dualities of life and death, sea and sky, bodies and territories.

Ganesh’s double-sided mixed media paintings reveal intimate studio moments evoking hope and despair, triumph and exasperation. Each work incorporates free-form poetry with fantastical imagery and collage, melding text and image like roving maps of the mind.
