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.

“Internationally acclaimed photographer Todd Hido has made a name for himself capturing unsettling images of the suburban landscape. At the center of Hido’s work is a certain degree of realism. He uses only available light and does not move objects when composing his images. Hido shoots his signature residential landscapes at night using long exposure times and employing the ambient atmosphere that surrounds his subjects. His minimalist, moody images, set in architecturally homogeneous settings, suggest sinister narratives.”
