San Francisco native, Chinese American artist, and community activist, Bernice Bing was a bridge between many worlds. She came of age during the Beat era, and entered the San Francisco Art Institute in 1959. Her paintings synthesize abstract and modernist painting, and she later infused Chinese calligraphy into her work. Bing drew on both her Chinese background and her American upbringing, “to find what is good within both the cultures,” resulting in work which resonates on multiple levels. As a Chinese American artist reclaiming the style of Abstract Expressionism and redefining its ties to non-Western philosophies and aesthetics, she brings to light connections which have long been submerged.

Join us for an opening reception on September 21 from 6-8pm.
