Exhibition view: Becoming, Saint Joseph’s Arts Society, San Francisco, 2021.

For anyone who hasn’t been inside Saint Joseph’s Arts Society in a while, now is your chance to take in the lauded restoration of the former church while seeing a bold new group exhibition, highlighting the best of the San Francisco gallery scene.

“Becoming,” curated by Saint Joseph’s artist-in-residence Erica Deeman, features work by 16 artists represented by nine Bay Area galleries, including Miya Ando, Sydney Cain, Vanessa Marsh, Sara VanDerBeek, Lee Materazzi, Leiko Ikemura and Kimia Ferdowsi Kline. Deeman says that her purpose with the new show was to consider “how we mark and measure transformations in our own lives, in the world around us, as well as the spaces between us,” a theme many have reflected on in the past year.

This exhibition is the first collaboration between Saint Joseph’s Arts Foundation and the San Francisco Art Dealers Association. Participating galleries include Altman Siegel Gallery, Crown Point Press, Dolby Chadwick Gallery, Eleanor Harwood Gallery, Hashimoto Contemporary, Marrow Gallery, Nancy Toomey Fine Art, re.riddle and Rena Bransten Gallery.
