This event has ended.

To begin 2018, we will mount an exhibition of early paintings by Elmer Bischoff (1916-1991), tracing his development from the mid-1940s, to the years preceding his transition to figurative painting in 1952. In line with the evolution of the post-war San Francisco art scene, Bischoff’s evolution from surrealist imagery and biomorphic abstraction to the heavy, gestural abstraction reflects the various influences and personalities shaping the Bay Area artistic identity. These years align with Bischoff’s first stint teaching at California School of Fine Arts and reinforce the major influence the school and its community had on the painting in the region.



from January 11, 2018 to February 22, 2018

Opening Reception on 2018-01-11 from 18:00 to 20:00
