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.

Romer Young Gallery
Johnny Abrahams
A Sprint for the Idler

Romer Young Gallery is pleased to present its second solo exhibition with artist Johnny Abrahams. A Sprint for the Idler will be on view Saturday, January 16th through Saturday, February 27th.

Abrahams’ paintings are abstractions, characterized by large geometric forms painted in oil and acrylic on raw burlap and canvas in black, red and yellow. Through repetition and subtle interactions between the void and painted form, the compositions convey rhythm, phrasing, cadence and an unmistakable melodic character.

And in the back gallery for SF Arts Week we have installed a collection of works by gallery artists Nancy White, Christoph Roßner, Joseph Hart and Jean-François Lauda
