George Krevsky Gallery, in collaboration with guest curator Gail Goldyne, has selected a group of talented and internationally recognized artists to memorialize the Art Deco span. The exhibition includes Bay Area Figurative artist Joan Brown, ceramicist Richard Shaw, photographers Richard Misrach, JoSon and Richard Nagler, painters Chester Arnold, Guy Diehl and Helen Berggruen, printmaker Rupert Garcia, sculptors Steve Allen and Ken Kalman, and architect William Walters. The artworks pay homage not only to the orange vermillion structure, but also the city’s infamous fog, hilly terrain, majestic beauty, windy bay, and to the construction workers who built the Bridge. These fine art interpretations are documents of the culture of our time.
To further celebrate the occasion, the gallery has organized two special events. On Wednesday, May 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, respected gallerist Ruth Braunstein will moderate a panel, Artists in Conversation. Golden Gate Bridge Historian and Storyteller, Peter Moylan, will give a Gallery Talk “Tales of the Bridge” on June 2nd at 2pm, as part of SF Art Dealer’s Association newly launched First Saturdays.
