San Francisco,

As painters we are concerned with the non-representational, the unseen sensations, and the numinous that move through our worlds. Similar to the way gravity operates as a universal force, we are citing somatic impulses on the smaller scale. Bringing this into form disturbs cohesive space, where marks may be reminiscent of things other than they are. Incandescence and luminosity excites us.

Participating artists:
Simone Simon
Nathan Goldsmith
Carina Alia Earl

Opening reception: Tuesday, April 3, with an artist talk at 4:30 and a reception from 5:00–7:00 pm.


The Diego Rivera Gallery, home to SFAI’s historic Diego Rivera Mural, is a student-directed exhibition space for work by SFAI students. The gallery provides an opportunity for students from all academic programs to present their work or curate in a gallery setting; to use the space for large-scale installations; or to experiment with artistic concepts and concerns in a public venue.
