Bruce Katz

Bruce lives in San Francisco and has a studio at Hunters Point Shipyard and currently gives workshops in both plein air landscape and studio still life painting. He paints in a representational, but impressionistic, style and focuses on landscape/cityscape, still life and figure. He shows his work at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery, at STUDIO Gallery and Arc Gallery, all in SF. He also has several Open Studios shows at the Shipyard throughout the year.  Check out Bruce's website here.

Please Help with Our Electrical Upgrade

As a non-profit, volunteer-driven art center, funding is often very tight for us. We also need to  face the realities of operating out of an 1898 Victorian building that requires frequent upgrading and maintenance. Our goal today is to raise $8500 to overhaul and upgrade our second floor electrical service (currently only 50 amp) and modify and install new classroom lighting. This will allow us to increase our class offerings and art group meeting space availability which in turn will increase our cash flow.
