Light to Dark, A Collective Arts Exhibition

Light to Dark
3/7/14 – 4/4/14
Opening Reception: March 7,2014 (6-9pm)

The exhibit, Light to Dark, is comprised of 3 different art collectives, working within their subgroups as well as together to present the beauty and intricacies of collaboration.

Collectively, The Mesh, The Maritime Art Collective, and the Dark Arts Collective, represent working relationships, respect, and the ability to create an environment for individual and group growth.

Although formed at different times and in different stages of development, these collectives are exemplary in demonstrating the struggle, strength, and persistence required to maneuver a complicated world of arts with great momentum. Their foundations are built on hard work and talent, a buoyant combination.

The title of the show, Light to Dark, is a play on the idea of these collectives representing a spectrum of different skills and coming together at various time gradients in space. These are just a few points, as the last decade has seen a rush of art collectives form and dissolve in San Francisco.

Collectives hold a dear place for Incline Gallery, as the Directors and Founders first worked together in the now dissolved San Pancho Art Collective (SPAC) of 2009. Incline Gallery is proud to host a show that pays respect to its roots, while strengthening the current community of art collectives, and solidifying their place in local art history.
