International Orange Exhibition Runs Through Oct. 28, 2012 at Historic Fort Point, San Francisco
The elusiveness of fog provides inspiration for an installation by Pae White ~ Entitled...

An artist I admire, Pae White is among the group of artists selected to honor the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge in celebration of its 75th anniversary.
A vast woven tapestry sets the stage for visitors to experience the foggy atmosphere so often encountered when crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.  Read more about the exhibit and participating artists on the FOR-SITE web site:

  1. My six years with my wife in SF and San Anselmo were some of my favorites. Especially my regular bike rides out of the city over the bridge and up Hawk Hill when I lived in town and my drives over the bridge to and from San Anselmo in my last 3 years.

    1. Good to connect, Reed,
      Sounds like your experience of the area is similar to mine. San Francisco and Marin still seem to me like living in a kind of paradise, with so much protected land, and the incredible beauty of the city, ocean, and of course, the Bridge!

    1. I'll keep hoping you will one day see the City by the Bay, my friend.

  3. A tapestry! Amazing. When it came up in my reader, I thought it was a wall. When I arrived on the page, I thought it was painted cloth. A tapestry must have taken ages and ages to make.

      From one who appreciates art to another keen observer, thanks for stopping by to comment.
      If I'm correct, the piece was woven in Poland to Pae's specifications.
