10th Anniversary Show at Secession - "Ecological Resilience"

  • Secession Art & Design (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Secession Art & Design's 10th anniversary show, Ecological Resilience, is a three-person show featuring Cindy Shih, Heather Robinson, and Victoria Veedell. All three live and create art in San Francisco. This beautiful collection of landscapes and abstracts takes you through an ecosystem of nature and pattern.

Secession, in its 10 years of existence, has exhibited its own resilience to continue supporting over 60 artists and designers. The gallery has been through an eviction and relocation. Our roots started small, but we love the evolution as we've grown into our new home. With every storm the light has shown through. With every challenge I have risen to the test of owning a small business in San Francisco. Thank you to our incredible community for your support and loyalty! Please join us on Friday, August 4, 6-9pm for an artist party and celebration.

Open Studios at Secession Art & Design

Secession Art & Design is proud to participate in Artspan's Open Studios again, this year featuring a great show by five different artists. 

Secession Art & Design’s newest art collection, Suspension,  features five talented artists that are inspired by daily life. Heather Robinson plays with acrylic paint and stencils to create colorful abstract art that makes every graffiti artist wonder how she got the drips to go against gravity. Old-school graffiti artist Nate 1 captures Mission Bernal in motion with spray paint. Rob Sakovich uses his spray cans to create urban windows that give a 360 to a small slice of SF. Chris Stokes realizes his urban vision through mixed media, collaging literary sources and symbols into an abstract scene that resembles a city neighborhood. Laurence Srinivasan is a model maker who takes the urban theme to a literal space, pouring every detail into his models of landmark structures made of wood and brass. The gallery brings all these together into a story of a changing city where art is alive and vibrant.

Secession will be open 11am to 7pm both Saturday and Sunday, November 5 & 6. Meet all the artists, and take a look at the great stuff they created!

Insights & Reflections Opening

I'm showing a couple of recent paintings with a great group of artists at Laughing Monk Brewery, 1439 Egbert St in San Francisco. The opening is Saturday October 1, 4-8pm. This venue is one of Artspan's neighborhood hubs, showcasing artists who are participating in Open Studios this year. Laughing Monk will be offering discounts on beer all day long, and Artspan is doing a whole Hub Crawl with a trolley shuttle between different venues, so it should be a great time.

Connection Art Opening & 9th Anniversary Celebration

Secession Art & Design is proud to celebrate its 9th anniversary show, Connection, featuring painter Heather Robinson and urban quilter Amy Ahlstrom. Both San Francisco artists live and breathe art, experimenting with color, pattern, and texture. Robinson’s studio is nestled in Secession where she has been a resident for 9 years. While at the gallery you can see her process as she paints and pours gel medium through her original stencils, creating art that is alive with decorative vibrancy. Ahlstrom quilts her intricate and expressive quilts in the Bayview. Hand-quilting visual elements like graffiti or pawn shop diamonds, her muse always comes from urban walks and her photography of captured moments. Side by side, both artists play with surface and happy accidents, creating art that is full of personality.

Get to know the artists and their art on Friday, August 12, 6pm-9pm.

8th Anniversary Show at Secession Art & Design

Secession Art & Design’s 8th anniversary show featuring Andreina Davila and Heather Robinson’s vibrant art explores textured pattern and connection. Davila’s series, [i am], abstractly creates topographical worlds that embrace the balance of a shared experience through encaustic and water-based mixed media. Nestled in the gallery, Robinson has created her decorative body of work,Excess, using acrylic and fabric on wood panels. A visual confection of grids, geometrics, florals, and color elevates the decorative in unexpected ways with a beautiful burst of luminosity and life.

Our show at Secession will be on display through Sunday, September 27 - hours are Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 7pm.
