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.

Simon Breitbard Fine Arts
Jami Porter Lara, Scott Hazard, Jeremy Holmes, and t.w.five

Simon Breitbard Fine Arts is pleased to present select works by Jami Porter Lara, Scott Hazard, Jeremy Holmes, and t.w.five. Each of these four artists’ work is deeply informed by their process, the physical act of making it, and the subsequent transformation of their materials. Clay becomes vessel using a process over 2000 years old; hard wood is transformed into dynamic ribbons; flat, patiently torn paper renders a three dimensional landscape; and mundane, industrial vinyl is painstakingly cut into thousands of tiny pieces to create a library of detailed cultural obsessions. These works are on view at our San Francisco gallery, which is currently open by appointment.
