Biggest Opening Night ever!

Huge Thanks to everyone who came out for our party last Thursday night!  We had double the attendance of the rest of our shows and ALL of the food, wine and beer were heartily consumed!!  This great night featured incredible work, art sales and fantastic opportunities for mixing and mingling!!

Even the kids got to take part in the action under the firm hand of flour painter, Tim Armstrong, who helped them make their own unique flour painted emblems on our gallery floor.

For those who signed up for the Sewer Ride, you probably heard it was cancelled due to torrential rain.  The SFBC Sewer Ride has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 10th at NOON.  There will be a small party at the gallery to welcome riders and any one else who wants to come out and celebrate this awesome show at 3PM.

Beneath The Surface March 27th: Featured Artist Tom Kabat

Our new show opens March 27th from 6-8pm at the Reclaimed Room, 701 Amador Street, SF 94124.  Please get to know Tom Kabat, one of our featured artists for the show.  

Inspired by the wide variety of designs seen in antique bicycles, Tom explores the practical and whimsical form of the bicycle using found objects and old bike parts to make ride-able thought pieces.

Riding 4,200 miles across the country with high school friends got me hooked on bicycles, bike commuting and bike touring vacations.  Thinking of bikes as rolling levers and as mobility assist devices frees up a creative view of how a bike can be designed and made.  With a background in environmental and mechanical engineering, I look at bicycle design by combining disparate ideas and pushing boundaries.  My pieces are crudely made from mostly dumpster rescued materials.  I hope to inspire viewers to start making their own fun bikes.

I share my designs and techniques at:

In the background, you can see the newly erected Bayshore mural on the unused grain elevators.  This project was commissioned  by the San Francisco Art Commission and lights up at night.  A great landmark to find our gallery for these upcoming receptions!!


As part of this new display, we are sponsoring a special reception for the resurrected Sewer Ride by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition!  The Sewer ride takes place Saturday, March 29th, starting at the Daly City BART and winds 12 miles near San Bruno mountain, Candlestick and the SF Bay exploring the squishy boundary between humans and H20.  It comes to a close at Reclaimed Room with a small party for the riders and anyone else who wants to join.  The riders should arrive between 3 and 4pm and the party officially goes from 4-6pm.  Beers and snacks provided!  Join US!!  Sign up for the ride here:
