inspired by a chance encounter at Flax with a close-out sale of deep vertical panels, 48” x 12” x 1 5/8”. 24 local Bay Area artists will each produce two companion pieces or diptychs on these identically sized panels.

The panels exactly ring the gallery – 48 works in total. This is the 7th annual 48 Pillars exhibition at Arc Gallery. It is essentially a “structural constraint” show. The artists are unconstrained in subject matter, except to the extent that works need to be a series, but they are constrained in format.

It will be visually stunning.
