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.

Johnna Arnold, Serena Mitnik-Miller, Lena Wolff

Sarah Shepard Gallery is pleased to present recent works by Johnna Arnold, Serena Mitnik-Miller, and Lena Wolff. Made during the pandemic, these pieces represent hope, advocate for environmental change and provide a quiet spiritual moment.

Johnna Arnold is an artist, photographer, educator, and urban farmer based in Oakland, CA. Johnna’s work revolves around her interest in the infrastructure that supports our post-industrial lifestyle and how humans can relate to this vast system.

Serena Mitnik-Miller is an artist and designer working between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Beginning with pencil drawings, Mitnik-Miller carefully chooses her watercolor pigments to co-exist together on the paper in a composition of interlocking patterns of color and concentric shapes where structures break apart, bubbles stack and pyramids multiply.

Lena Wolff is an interdisciplinary visual artist, craftswoman and activist for democracy. Her practice extends out of American folk art and craft traditions, while at the same time being connected to minimalism, geometric abstraction, Op art, social practice and feminist art.
