Jeff Canham Solo Exhibition

September 14th - November 12, 2019

It would be difficult to walk through San Francisco’s oceanside Sunset district without encountering Jeff Canham’s handy work. Having lived in this neighborhood for the past fourteen years, signs of his residency can be seen in the fonts on facades of countless businesses and public spaces which lure natives and travelers to its quaint streets. Summoning his surroundings as resource, Canham’s work is inspired by surf culture, old signage, and talented friends.

Mike Brodie solo exhibition

May 18 - June 12, 2019

Brodie is fascinated by work, and is equally fascinated by photographing that work. "I couldn't do this at my old jobs," he says. "I couldn't photograph the work I was doing, I couldn't leave town, I couldn't ride freight trains, I was just a worker bee, trapped within a big business management structure that would not allow me to be creative or explore the world the way I wanted. Now I just barter. I trade. I like building community through sharing and helping out my friends."
