pic·ture win·dow /ˈpik(t)SHər ˌwindō/ noun

plural noun: picture windows

:an outsize usually single-paned window designed to frame an exterior view


The advent of the picture window, the re-considering of the window as a frame for an exterior view, also allowed those on the outside a somewhat voyeuristic view of a private interior tableau. Art plays a similar role - acting as the pane through which the artist and the viewer experience each other - what each discovers about the other, and themselves, may not be so easily framed.


We invite you to experience the art in person – with the required safety restrictions in place - during the month of September 11th to October 11th. Our location in the heart of North Beach has a lively outdoor dining and strolling scene. The monthly Art & Merchant event, North Beach First Friday, has resumed with pedestrianized streets and a variety of outdoor entertainments and festivities. There’s lots of room to roam at a safe distance from other attendees – Mark Your Calendars for Friday, October 2nd!

Jessica Levant, Tisha Kenny, Elizabeth Ashcroft and Gregory Vernitsky are all participating in the 2020 SF ARTSpan Open Studios as well!

As there is a limit to how many visitors can be in the gallery at any one time, rather than a traditional opening night event, we will host an Open House Weekend – Friday, Sept. 11th, 3-8pm and Saturday & Sunday, Sept. 12th & 13th, 1-6pm.
