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.

Sarah Shepard Gallery – Conversation between Lena Wolff and the artists included in the current group exhibition, Our Eyes Are On Fire

January 30 @ 4:00 pm PST - 5:00 pm PST

Conversation between Lena Wolff and the artists included in the current group exhibition, Our Eyes are On Fire. Featuring Tammy Rae Carland, Angela Hennessy, Masako Miki & Miriam Klein Stahl, and more, in celebration of the exhibition Our Eyes Are On Fire.

Our Eyes Are On Fire, curated by artist Lena Wolff, brings together 12 artists around interweaving themes of radical hope, visioning utopia, and expressions of joy in the context of the pressing issues we face as a society. The title of the show partially speaks to the wildfires that have ravaged California in recent years, but it also refers to the incisiveness and clarity of vision artists possess in relationship to the world, and the ways that they are uniquely capable of transforming dilemma into the sublime.
