For our next exhibition at Live Worms Gallery, we would like the gallery to serve as a place of ‘respite’ from the chaos that surrounds us - from the pandemic; from the fires; from the election; from the Supreme Court nomination; from divisiveness and uncertainty. We have collected a wide selection of artworks by over 30 artists that offer the viewer an opportunity to focus instead on a visual experience that promotes thoughts of wellbeing, harmony, beauty, calm, joy, celebration – to create a refuge of sorts, a place of repose, a bubble of quiet in which to take a moment to step away from the noise. It is no accident that Election Day will occur during the run of this show. The title, Respite, is less a theme than a matter of creating a mood.

We invite you to experience the art in person – with the required safety restrictions in place – from October 20th to November 8th. 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, offers a variety of outdoor entertainments and festivities. There’s plenty of room to roam at a safe distance from other attendees – Mark Your Calendars for Friday, November 6th!
As there is a limit to how many visitors (10-12) can be in the gallery at any one time, rather than a traditional opening night event, we will host Open House Weekends – Friday thru Sunday – October 23-25 & October 30-November 1 & November 6-8 – Hours:1-6pm.
