FAULTline Art Show: The County Experience
On view February 6 through March 31, 2020
FAULTline Art Show: The County Experience is an exploration of artists that have grown out of the beautiful Marin County art scene.
A varied and diverse exhibition of contemporary visual art, sculpture, tapestry, photography, and more, FAULTline Art Show: The County Experience features over sixty unique works of art that convey the artist’s individual experience while living in Marin County’s distinctive and rich geography. The exhibit brings together artistic cultures and styles from a vast range of practices representing this unique community.
“The various and varied Bay Area art movements have always inspired me,” says exhibit curator and Marin County Cultural Commissioner Jennifer B. Wechsler. “This new presentation, FAULTline Art Show: The County Experience, explores some of Marin County’s artistic visual heritage while promoting a new generation of artists that have evolved throughout the County over the past several decades.”
The exhibit traces the important art movements throughout Marin County over the last 80 years beginning in the 1940’s with the S.S. Vallejo houseboat residency in Sausalito to West Marin, where the Lucid Art and JB Blunk Foundations still operate today. Organizations such as Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito’s MarinShip Studios, San Rafael’s Art Works Downtown, and Marin Open Studios are just some examples of Marin County’s continued cultivation of the visual arts—a region like no other known for a myriad of creative opportunities.
This third installation of the FAULTline Art Show series follows prior installations at Toby’s Feedbarn in Pt. Reyes Station in 2018 and at Timbuk2’s San Francisco factory in early 2019. The exhibit showcases artists who live and create on the earthquake fault that weaves its way through our lives and our state.
