'Retrofit 1.0' on Telegraph Hill
The Telegraph Hill Gallery, at the corner of Grant and Greenwich, reopens its doors on Saturday May 20th with the exhibition ‘Retrofit 1.0’. This show features artists of the acclaimed Cubberley Artist Studio Program in Palo Alto, housed in a former elementary school and boasting spacious, light-filled studios. This show, curated by Mel Day and Marianne Lettieri, explores the theme of revision in the studio process, in which the artist turns to older an older piece and reworks it from a fresh perspective.
‘Retrofit 1.0’ is on view from May 20-June 17, 2017, with the opening on Saturday May 20th from 6:30-8:30pm, and and a second iteration of the show, ‘Retrofit 2.0’, will run June 24th-July 22, 2017, with an opening on Saturday June 24, 6:30-8:30pm.
Appropriately titled ‘Retrofit’, the theme also references the nearly year-long closure of the gallery while building renovations were taking place. The charm of the exterior and the oddly-configured floor plan of the gallery has not changed, however, and we welcome this opportunity to view the work from the dynamic Cubberley Studios.
