San Francisco, CA -- FFDG is pleased to present “Six Degrees” a group show with works by Brett Amory, John Felix Arnold III, Mario Ayala, Mariel Bayona, Ryan Beavers, Jud Bergeron, Chris Burch, Ryan De La Hoz, Martin Machado, Jess Mudgett, Meryl Pataky, Lucien Shapiro, Mike Shine, Minka Sicklinger, Nicomi Nix Turner, and Alex Ziv. These diverse artists are working in painting, drawing, sculpture and more. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, January 16th (7-10pm). Beer and wine will be available. Most of the artists will be present.
In addition to being the first show at FFDG in 2015, it is also the inaugural show curated by our new director, Rachel Ralph. It’s based on a simple premise: the show was created through personal and professional connections with artists who are either new or familiar to the gallery. In one way or another, we’re all friends here. Hence, Six Degrees. Pulling from the theory of “Six Degrees of Separation” which posits that everyone is six (or less) introductions away from any other human on earth, this show carries a narrative of “friends of friends.” While the works may be very different in their execution, medium and style, every artist participating in the show either knows the others or is just one introduction away.
All of the artists in the show are (or have recently been) based on the west coast, with a majority of them working right here in San Francisco. As a gallery located in the heart of SF, FFDG seeks to show new and established artists working and living in the bay area and we want to start the year off with 16 of the most creative people here.
