It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) faculty, Timothy Berry and Jeremy Morgan, present, ECHOES: From There to Here.
This exhibition is reflective of SFAI’s desire to recognize the wider community of artists who have and will work both within the physicality of this unique architectural environment and with its spirit of place. The artwork included in ECHOES: From There to Here accentuates a breadth of vision and concerns, underscoring the significance of art in general and the importance of studio practice as indicative of a lifetime commitment to art and creativity. We are now witness to the artists work as gifts through action and manifestation, to the culture of society, and to the wider world. In so doing, we too are mindful of the profound importance of both creative thought and action.
ECHOES: From There to Here is a group exhibition featuring the work of forty-three SFAI alumni working in various media and modes of expression: Zeina Barakeh, Maria Theresa Barbist, Amy Bark, Jerry Ross Barrish, Barry Beach, Fred X Brownstein, Ruth Chase, Patricia Crowley, Beth Davilla Waldman, Maria Dawn, Erin Dengerink, Selvaggio Dordetti, Edward Drew, Kevin Dudley, Peter Foucault, Erlin Adones Geffrard, Dave Getz, Theresa Gooby, Josie Grant, Marc Daniel Hirsch, Paula Izydorek, Jeff Key, Daniel Konhauser, JJ L’Heureux, Rocky McCorkle, Lisa Mccutcheon, Flicka McGurrin, Dana Morrison, David Oddman Ng, Flo Pizzarello, Hugh Pocock, Karen Redgreene, Erik Ritter, Michal Sagar, Irys Schenker, Jesse Eric Schmidt, Craig Schwanfelder, Merle Temkin, Linda Trunzo, Blu Voelker, Ingrid Wells, Aaron Wilder, Holly Wong, Antoinette Wysocki, and Rochelle Youk.
