See new works from Tracy Grubbs at the CounterPulse gallery, presented in partnership with ArtSpan’s Art-in-Neighborhoods program.

Drawn from several different bodies of work, the show at Counterpulse will highlight a meditative focus on structure, movement and repetition as the basis for new insights about the changing nature of form. Work from the Smoke Enso, Blue Line, and Lost Landscapes series will be displayed throughout the lobby of the theater.

About Tracy Grubbs:

“In art and in life, I seem to be searching for ways to let the static experience of a single view give way to the ecstatic possibilities of the ephemeral. I make art as a way to explore philosophical and spiritual questions that interest me. Most of my works are visual metaphors that expand or deepen my understanding of the world.

I have a degree in political philosophy and environmental studies and spent the first half of my career working on environmental conservation projects. The natural world continues to inspire me as I look for ways to extend my understanding of our relationship to ourselves, to each other and to the word around us. I studied and continue to study art and art history in the U.S. and Italy and draw inspiration from the power of art’s silence and stillness to convey knowledge”.

About ArtSpan’s Art-in-Neighborhoods Program:
ArtSpan’s Art-in-Neighborhoods program serves the city of San Francisco by connecting communities with local artists while activating spaces with vibrant, locally-made artwork. ArtSpan partners with local businesses and building owners to bring art exhibitions and art events to businesses, dormant storefronts, and empty spaces for lease that seek artwork for their blank walls. Local artists who are ArtSpan members are given the opportunity to display, promote, and sell their artwork in these diverse venues. All aspects of the program allow otherwise unused walls, spaces, or properties to become creative arenas for celebrating local arts.

The Art-In-Neighborhoods program strives to create visibility and accessibility for local arts in San Francisco. ArtSpan provides the public with free, high quality arts exposure. Simultaneously, local ArtSpan artists are given the opportunity to promote and sell their artwork. Each of the Art-In-Neighborhoods exhibitions and community events will provide clear, consistent information about ArtSpan programing to educate the public about ArtSpan’s goals and how to become a supporter – by attending our events and buying artwork from local artists!
