Winter Salon 2008 Opening Reception

Micaela Gallery's inaugural reception of Winter Salon 2008, and of its new home at 49 Geary, was a fabulous success! Attended by collectors, artists and a surprising number of gallery followers, the reception featured local San Francisco Bay Area artists, Gary Clemenceau, Naoko Okabe, and David Ruth's presentations of their newest works to the public.

Micaela Gallery began its Salon program in the summer of 2005, to offer invited artists a curated exhibition venue and promote an active exchange of ideas in an informal setting. As the Salon d'Ete grew, Director Micaela Van Zwoll expanded the Salon program to offer a broader, more formal direction featuring contemporary fine art emphasizing conceptual artwork in drawing and digital art, glass sculpture, paintings and video art. Invited artists share a commitment to conceptual discipline, formal methods, rigorous process, and mastery of their chosen medium. Today, Micaela Gallery hosts COLD+HOT and Winter Salon - two annual group exhibitions that introduce, and open, the gallery's following program season. (images: Winter Salon 2008 installation view)
