Francisco Moreno
"The Chapel" is the centerpiece work in Francisco Moreno's current show that immerses us in murals and history. More...


Michael Spafford
This three-gallery survey of veteran Pacific Northwest painter Michael C. Spafford brings together dozens of paintings and prints, a hardbound catalogue, beautiful installations and lighting. But why wasn’t it all in an art museum? More...


Chester Arnold
In “Borderline,” Chester Arnold's epic-scale landscapes take aim at our ecological plight. Crumbling ruins of concrete and brick, defaced with graffiti and maintained by small, faceless, lumpen workers, are absurd and sad and strangely beautiful. More...


FotoFest 2018 Biennial
The current FotoFest Biennial focuses on India, and the 47 photographers mirror key issues such as race, gender and migration. More...


Kathy Jones
Kathy Jones paintings of standing, featureless figures posing in landscapes and interiors are all about color and implicit drama. More...

Harald Szeemann
Harald Szeemann was one of the world's key curators in the 1960s and 70s, effectively launching a new era of artistic diversity. "Museum of Obsessions" reviews that career; "Grandfather: A Pioneer Like Us" recreates the apartment of Szeemann's grandfather, a hair stylist. More...


Weldon Butler and Amanda Knowles
Weldon Butler's working life has been as varied as the rather populist use of materials from which he constructs rough but diagrammatic abstractions. Amanda Knowles produces ghostly images of urban construction projects that feel like fantasy. More...

“There is No Alas Where I Live”
The title of this show of nine contemporary Bay Area photographers, “There is No Alas Where I Live,” is taken from Theodore Roethke’s 1951 poem, “I Need, I Need”: “Whisper me over, / Why don’t you, begonia, / There’s no alas / Where I live.” More...


Christopher Knowles
Christopher Knowles did not speak until age 12. Now 58, the former protege of Robert Wilson is one of the unique creative voices of his generation. More...


Richard Morhous
Early modernist models infuse Richard Morhous' 21st century approach to brilliantly colored and fragmented landscape painting. Morhouse make individual brush marks count, and his hovering abstractions of light and color are a revelation. More...


“The Wyeths: Three Generations”
Andrew Wyeth is the central figure of a family survey in which his father N.C. and son Jamie are effectively the bookends. More...


Nancy O’Connor
Nancy O'Connor met Milam Thompson more than 30 years ago, and the ranch hand's story and spirit has infused her art ever since. More...
