San Francisco, CA
Lance Rivers' first solo exhibition at Creativity Explored sheds light on his prolific career as an artist living in the Bay Area. The skilled draftsman offers a personal vision of regional bridges, buildings, tunnels, and BART stations imbued with loving attention to detail and an uncanny spatial presence.
Rivers documents the ever-changing physicality of San Francisco and the East Bay on his own terms, leaving the viewer to question whose vision is being built around us. Rivers' work provides a unique perspective of the transitional flux the Bay Area has continuously undergone and continues to grapple with. On the occasion of his 50th birthday, Rivers reimagines the region through the eyes of an artist who is deeply invested and connected to our changing landscapes.

Creativity Explored artist Loren King's "brain map" artworks, made in collaboration with former Artist-in-Residence Julia Anne Goodman, are included in the Julia Anne Goodman: On Verticality exhibition at the JCCSF.
This solo exhibition by Oakland-based artist Goodman, presented in conjunction with her site-specific window installation at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), includes three bodies of works that explore the connections between the earth and stars. Materials include found slides, bed sheets and t-shirts, and beets. The work seeks to explore our relationship to one another and our environment, providing a meditation on how material can reflect our fragile resiliency and our short time on earth.
