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.

Casemore Kirkeby
Chanell Stone
Impressions

Casemore Kirkeby is proud to present Impressions, featuring new photographs by Oakland-based photographer Chanell Stone. Stone’s practice focuses on challenging insular views of Blackness by expanding on narratives subject to Black erasure. This avidity has led her to explore the Black body’s connection to the American landscape.

Chanell Stone (b. 1992, Los Angeles CA) received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at California College of the Art in 2019. Stone has had a solo exhibition at the Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco, CA (Natura Negra, 2019), and exhibited at Aperture Gallery (New York, NY), the Berkeley Art Center (Berkeley, CA), Center for Photography at Woodstock, (Woodstock, NY), San Francisco Art Commission (San Francisco, CA), SF Camerawork (San Francisco, CA), and Kala Art Institute (Berkeley, CA). Stone is the 2020 resident at Real Space and Time (Oakland, CA), and the January/February fellow at Black Space Residency hosted at 1240 Minnesota Street. Stone is in the collection of the KADIST Foundation (San Francisco/Paris), Center for Photography at Woodstock, (Woodstock, NY) and the Meyer Library: Artist Book Collection, (Oakland, CA). Stone was featured in W Magazine’s “8 Young Photographers to Follow in 2020.”
