A shovel, a knife, paint brushes…a machine shop, your studio, the office…what does the topic of work bring to mind? Is it a place, a tool, or even how you get there? That’s the challenge we posed to our artists: show us art inspired by work, tools and machines. We’re both both surprised and delighted by the art that came in response. The show includes terrific still lifes of hammers and wrenches, books and typewriters, brushes and paint. Location shots range from the kitchen to a museum, an auto repair shop to a library. There are of course pieces with a strong local bent–Pier 70, the dismantling of the old Bay Bridge, and even Madison Bumgarner at work. It’s a far-reaching show with a lot of beautiful pieces; let us know if you think we should add it to our annual rotation.
