4 x 8 Bridges SF Arts Week

In the tradition of San Francisco’s celebration of the visual arts in January, Mercury 20 Gallery is pleased to participate in 4 x 8-BRIDGES, an online art fair that includes thirty-six Northern California art galleries, each showing four works, as well as a series of talks, webinars, and video walk-throughs. We invite you to visit the site January 25-31, in support of our arts community. Here is the direct link to the Mercury 20 Gallery page ~ 8-Bridges

Mercury 20 has two video events in conjunction with the fair. The first is a roundtable discussion, Zooming In: Form, Pixel, Movement, Story featuring four gallery artists: Kathleen King, Chris Komater, Mary Curtis Ratcliff and Johanna Poethig discuss their work.

Stop by Mercury 20 Gallery for Slow Art Day!

Slow Art Day is a worldwide movement that you can experience at Mercury 20 Gallery on Saturday April 6, 2019 from 12-4pm. A gallery facilitator will help you slowly explore selected works from our two photo exhibitions, Peter Honig’s Wire Hum and Accretion/Erosion from Charlie Milgrim. Visitors will spend about 10 minutes looking, followed by a discussion about their discoveries. Find out what happens when you are invited to look slowly at the artwork.

Refreshments will be served. Free Admission.
