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.
