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.

Headlands Gallery – Community Rapid Response Fund

In late 2020, Headlands developed a Community Rapid Response Fund (CRRF) to provide fast, direct and unrestricted support for work made by artists in partnership with other individuals and organizations in their communities that address vulnerable populations or social inequities. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues into 2021, we are now calling for applications for another round of the CRRF, which provides an award of $1000 towards the completion of a project in-progress. Letters of interest will be accepted until February 8, with funds to be distributed in late February.
