100 YEARS OF BAY AREA ART

Posted on | March 11, 2012 | Comments Off on 100 YEARS OF BAY AREA ART

The San Francisco Bay Area has produced a rich and varied art legacy. Its natural beauty and reputation as a progressive oasis on the western frontier have always been magnetic to artists. Unfortunately, the gallery representation and promotion necessary to drive patronage have historically failed to keep pace with artistic production. This imbalance may have actually enhanced creativity, since pandering to a commercial market which doesn’t exist would be pointless.  In any case, much Bay Area art of the last 100 years has a flavor unique to the region.
