The Battery Art Program focuses on
showing work by emerging and established contemporary artists, generally
living in, or with strong ties to, the Bay Area and West Coast of
California. The exhibitions in the club rotate four times a year and are paired
with a continuing series of lectures, curator tours, gallery walks, and
events at museums and galleries around the Bay Area.
The work they are presenting at Art SV/SF is representative
of their ongoing exhibition programming, as all of the artists have
either participated in a previous show at The Battery, or are slated to
show in future exhibitions.
UC Davis Art Studio presents The Conversation: A
special Exhibition for Art SV/SF. The conversation engages
current research by 17 artists, scientists, and composers at UC Davis
research institutions around the world. The Conversation is
galvanized by objects and images, models and reflections. The work for
the new show combines solo works with interdisciplinary projects
produced from discussions, studio
visits, and correspondence between researchers over weeks, months and
