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.

Laeh Glenn

Laeh Glenn is an American painter living in Sebastapol, California. Glenn’s practice explores the conflation of historical and contemporary precedents in painting and the way in which we often experience images today, through their digital representations online.

Her paintings address the digital life of an image; how repetition and sharing affect quality and context and how a physical painting can speak to the altered and damaged images that surround us. Although her source material is diverse, Glenn’s paintings are uniformly characterized by a flattened application of paint. Her perfectly articulated edges and matte surfaces are executed in refined and controlled color palettes. She often returns to the same image multiple times, with each subsequent painting shifting slightly in tonality, texture or scale. These subtle shifts mimic the effect of an image’s digital experience as it travels from screen to screen. A border of raw canvas surrounding the painting is a signature motif creating a kind of window within a window and alluding to the way we often experience images through the mediation of our screens. She often finishes a painting with a handmade wooden frame made by the artist, reinforcing the object quality of Glenn’s paintings in contrast to their digital inspirations.

Laeh Glenn’s solo exhibition, The Doldrums is on view at the gallery through October 24th. To make an appointment to view it in person please use this link or email us at info@altmansiegel.com.
