ART 94124 | Opening Reception for Still Working TONIGHT!
ART 94124's on the move, with an exhibit at an off-site location!
EVENT | Opening Reception for Still Working: Working Artist, Artist Working at 4800 Third Street (@ Oakdale) | Friday, August 13 | 6-7:30pm
Our video installation, Working Artist, Artist Working is on the move again! ART 94124 is pleased to be partnering with San Francisco Housing Development Corporation to bring the installation to a new venue—4800 Third Street (at Oakdale). This iteration of the video installation, Still Working: Working Artist, Artist Working, will be paired with new works by 13 ART 94124 artists, 7 of whom are featured in the videos.
Join us for the exhibit's Opening Reception at 4800 Third Street, hosted by San Francisco Housing Development Corporation. Take this opportunity to see this unique raw space before it gets developed into the neighborhood's newest restaurant, the highly-anticipated Radio Africa & Kitchen. Typically a "nomadic restaurant" 4800 Third Street will be Radio Africa's first permanent storefront location. Also, at the event, learn more about the stylish (and affordable) units upstairs. For a virtual tour visit www.4800thirdstreet.com.
The exhibit will be on view at 4800 Third Street until construction of the restaurant begins in September. Hours are Monday through Friday, 12–4pm. Open houses for the units upstairs are on Saturdays and Sundays, 10am–noon.
About Working Artist, Artist Working
Working Artist, Artist Working is a video installation that celebrates a unique and often overlooked truth—Bayview Hunters Point is a neighborhood with a particularly high density of artists living and working within its boundaries. Featuring 7 ART 94124 artists that live and/or work in BVHP, the videos are intended to draw attention to the artistic process, and specifically to draw attention to BVHP artists working—a nod to the creativity that exists right here in our own neighborhood.
The video installation was originally created by ART 94124 as part of Art in Storefronts, an inventive and award-winning initiative launched by the San Francisco Arts Commission and the Mayor's Office. Our video installation was originally on view in the storefront at 4414 Third Street (at Kirkwood) from October 2009–January 2010, then in the Bayview Opera House February 2010–April 2010, and then in The Gallery in Building 101 at Hunters Point Shipyard during Spring Open Studios 2010.

EXHIBIT | Daylighting Islais Creek Artists
On the south bank of Islais Creek sits Islais Creek Studios, an annex of the Hunters Point Shipyard artists' colony. Originally intended as the studio site for artists working in metal sculpture, the annex has expanded to include artists of various disciplines, and is developing a reputation on its own.
As talks continue to "daylight" more of Islais Creek, ART 94124 would like to put the focus on the artists who work in the studios on its banks. In Daylighting Islais Creek Artists ART 94124 will feature sculpture, paintings, photography, and mixed media works at ART 94124 GALLERY, which is only a slightly industrial hop, skip, and a jump from the Islais Creek Studios. Join us to celebrate the creativity of the artists who work creekside as they prepare for Fall Open Studios
Opening event Friday, August 20. Additional events on Friday, September 3 and Friday, September 17. More information about the exhibit, the participating artists, and the accompanying events will be made available soon.
