Silicon Valley Art Fair Wrap-Up
Posted by Bill Falls - Tagged

On October 9-11, for the second year in a row, shipyard artists and volunteers staffed a booth at Art Silicon Valley at the San Mateo Event Center. The art fair organizers donated booth space to STAR (link opens new window), the Shipyard artists’ nonprofit. The booth exhibited small works (12″x12″ or less) submitted by 32 artists (list below) and selected and organized by volunteer curator Robert Flynn Johnson, formerly of the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco.

Our tiny booth hosted a steady stream, and often a crowd, of Bay Area art lovers, gallery owners, and artists. Seven of the artworks were purchased and STAR forwarded the proceeds to the artists. Best of all, our presence at Art Silicon Valley allowed us to introduce the Shipyard studios to many new friends and was perfectly timed to spread the word about the following weekend’s Fall Open Studios.
