City Streets: Local Artists Portray the Urban Landscape

(PRWEB) June 7, 2005 -- Eleven artists focus on one subject—the urban landscape of the Bay Area—in City Streets at STUDIO Gallery in San Francisco. The show, which runs from June 15th – July 17th, includes painting, photography, prints and sculpture.

“Since the gallery only shows local artists, it seemed natural to do a show depicting only the local landscape,” says gallery owner Rab Terry. Advancing the local angle, several of the paintings in the show depict the Polk Street neighborhood where the gallery is located, and the name of the show, City Streets, comes from a story by Dashiell Hammett, who once lived nearby.

Despite the art’s local emphasis, the artists participating in the show are from all over the world. Several of the gallery’s regular artists, including Brandon Smith, Anna Conti, Brian Behnke, and Nobuhito Tanaka, will present their paintings. The show will also include prints from Peggy Snider and Toru Sugita, and steel sculpture from Alex MacLeitch. Kara Wood and Pep Ventosa will both exhibit their photographs. Tae Rhea and Kyoung Young Kim, both new to the gallery, will show their paintings.

City Streets runs from June 15 – July 17, 2005, with an opening reception on Saturday, June 18th, 4 – 8 pm. STUDIO Gallery is located at 1718A Polk Street (between Clay and Washington) in San Francisco. Gallery hours are Wednesday – Friday 11 am – 8 pm, Saturday + Sunday 11 am – 6 pm, and Monday + Tuesday by appointment.
