Halloween Visitors

A fairy princess, accompanied by two zombies, declared "Spirit Portrait" (center, above) by Bernie Rauch, as her favorite painting. The zombies were drawn to Bill Bruckner's lunar paintings (previous post.)

Spiderman was so excited, he had trouble focusing and could not decide which piece was his favorite. His mother said she really liked Pam Heyda's forest paintings (above.)

new exhibition space

Bill Bruckner's "Lunar Eclipse" paintings
Celebrating a new exhibition space in the Outer Sunset of San Francisco.
Oct. 24th - Dec. 6th, 2014

Opening Reception: Friday, October 24th, 2014 ~ TWO locations:
5-7pm at BigCrow Annex, 1567 46th Ave, San Francisco
6-8pm at BigCrow Studios, 1426 41st Ave., San Francisco

For 25 years, BigCrow Studios has been the home and workspace of artists Anna L. Conti, David W. Sumner, and an evolving cast of painters, photographers, musicians, writers and other artists. The new exhibition space is opening with "Premier," a group show with 40 works by a dozen of the artists who have passed through here over the years. The space will operate free-to-the-exhibiting-artist (the gallery does not take a cut of sales) but it is not a co-op.  The shows will be curated by Anna Conti and David Sumner, by invitation only. It’s a small space (372 sq. ft.) but, over time, Anna & David hope to show most of the great local contemporary artists they have come to know. They’ve got some cool shows coming up! 

After the opening reception, the primary Exhibition Space (on 41st Avenue) will be open to the public every Friday (1pm - 8pm) and Saturday (noon - 6pm.) Other days/hours by appointment (call Dave at 415-632-7746 or email Anna at anna@bigcrow.com ) The BigCrow Annex space (on 46th Avenue) is open by appointment. 

Both locations (5 blocks apart) are open during the receptions, held approximately every 6 weeks. The second show, "Portrait of the Artist," will open on Friday, December 12th.

 Stay tuned for more photos & info about the work in this show.
