Serial Relations and Undercurrents - Two portfolios of Bay Area Printmakers Curated in Conjunction with Bridges: the 2014 Southern Graphics Council International Conference in San Francisco


From March 26- March 29th the San Francisco Bay Area will be hosting the 2014 Southern Graphics Council (SGC) International Conference: Bridges, the first West Coast conference in the organization’s history.  In conjunction with the conference, the Peninsula Museum of Art will present Serial Relations and Undercurrents, two themed portfolios by Bay Area printmakers who explore metaphorical Bridges in their work.


The print is a means for the dissemination of ideas and a catalyst for social change.  Bridges investigates the intersection between traditional and emerging technologies and how these tools are vehicles for creating meaningful and critical discourse around contemporary issues.  San Francisco has long been known for its activism, innovation, technology and social justice; printmaking has historically been celebrated as a hybrid medium that embraces diverse working methodologies. Tradition joins with creativity; the familiar is married to the unknown.


Serial Relations Portfolio Statement:
"Bridges have long been used as a metaphor for relationships: they are built and burned.  As individuals we approach these interactions with perspectives, understandings, and goals informed by our unique histories.  We seek to bridge these gaps, to find common ground.  Navigating these spaces results in deep connection with success or highlights the isolation through failure, be it tragic or comic." - Jon Gourley

The participants in Serial Relations insightfully examine relationships between families, friends, and lovers.

Undercurrents Portfolio Statement:
"The San Francisco Bay Area is shaped by water-- the bay, the estuaries, the ocean, tidal marshes, rivers, creeks and deltas-- all of which have currents, some of which have undercurrents. These currents and undercurrents bring diversity as well as (often hidden) dangers to the Bay Area ecosystem and residents. The Bay Area is also shaped by the activities of its occupants, and is recognized on a global scale for innovation, activism, and collaboration.  It is an incubator that has currents and undercurrents-- many of which grapple with complex, multi-dimensional issues engaging our local/global networked culture. Artists who live or work in the Bay Area navigate between or "bridge" place, thought, action, and creation. This portfolio of artists investigates themes beneath the surface of mainstream awareness." - Kent Manske

The Goldfield Collection - Highlights of a Peninsula Collector's Passion for Art


For decades, Ronnie Goldfield was the doyenne of Peninsula fine art galleries.  Now retired, for years she showed and sold works by regional artists at Gallery 30, first in San Mateo and then in Burlingame.  This exhibit is culled from her personal collection and features paintings, prints and sculptures by a variety of 20th and 21st century artists including British phenom David Hockney, Italian contemporary artist Francesco Clemente, realist/color field landscape artist Wolf Khan, pop artist George Segal, and New York School artist Robert Motherwell, whose cohorts included Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollack and Mark Rothko.  Also featured are works by modern realist Philip Pearlstein, Bay Area artist Donna DuGuay and one oil by Ronnie Goldfield herself.
