Way Bay on Screen

This selection of works from the exhibition Way Bay reveals the rich and varied landscape and people of the Bay Area. The films range from a time capsule of Market Street before the 1906 earthquake, through Bruce Baillie’s tribute to a Mendocino summer day and Ernie Gehr’s mesmerizing panorama of the city’s skyline, to a river of naked bodies filmed at the San Francisco Art Institute. We also present a rare screening of Sara Kathryn Arledge’s glass slides, which she painted, scratched, and drew on before baking them into unique, vibrant abstractions not to be missed.
