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.

Rebecca Camacho Presents
Claire Oswalt
In Verse

Rebecca Camacho Presents is pleased to share a capsule exhibition of new works by Austin based artist Claire Oswalt.

With a mixed media practice encompassing paper collage, sewn canvas paintings and weavings, Oswalt’s works are akin to stories; narratives of moments, environments, places and times. Fluid across medium and defined by a strong emotional sense of color and a sensitive understanding of form and perspective, the serenity of Oswalt’s works belie the intricacies of their construction.
