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.

How to Read the World

How to Read the World is a presentation of commissions by Bay Area related artists exploring the potential of visual tableaux through allegory and narrative. The exhibition looks at ways in which artists see the world; specifically those who use new forms of language to interpret the current moment. The codex, in this case, acts as a container for escapism, imagination, knowledge, and passage of time.
