Join us as we celebrate the launch of two new exhibitions:

Davina Semo: Core Reflections highlights a new body of work by the San Francisco–based artist that considers the unique setting of Gallery 1 in relation to the landscape. Combining industrial materials and natural forms, it underscores the precarious state of the environment and offers a contemplative space for self-reflection.

Jim Drain: Membrane is the Providence-based artist’s first solo commission in Northern California. This fully interactive yearlong installation connects visitors with a lineage of countercultural dreamers who deployed craft and handwork to build a more democratic and inclusive world.

Conversation Pieces showcases newly commissioned works by emerging and mid-career artists who spark dialogue with the artistic legacy of Northern California. This series continues di Rosa’s ongoing interest in supporting the production of new work, and is notable for expanding the organization’s programmatic scope to include artists working both in and outside of the Bay Area.
