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.

Sachi Moskowitz
TEARS IN DREAMS

Final-OG

Sachi Moskowitz’s solo exhibit “TEARS IN DREAMS” opens at SWIM Gallery on January 23rd. The show will be appointment only and COVID safety guidelines will be strictly enforced.

Sachi Moskowitz was born in Topanga Canyon in 1989. She grew up in Southern Humboldt, moved to Los Angeles where she studied at Santa Monica College, and graduated from San Francisco Art institute in 2017 with a BFA in Sculpture.
Pieces in this show were made following a period of time in which the artist was unable to make work due to a series of injuries. That time spent reflecting, cataloguing dreams and memories, led to the world of “Tears in Dreams” which reconstructs glimpses of the past both personal and universal, with surrealist elements in disembodied spaces. The work is a blend of traditional ceramic techniques, painterly glazing, woodworking, and unique functional objects. The viewer is encouraged to peer into the uncertainty of the human condition, the subtle beauty of domestic space, and documentation of reality.
She’s currently based in Los Angeles.
