ACF Summer 2010 Update

Art at the Cheese Factory (ACF) is proud of the four spectacular exhibitions it presented in its first two years of programming at the Marin French Cheese Company including Terroir: A Sense of Place, Shaping Matter, and Journeys; and at the Marin Arts Gallery, Adding On: Repetition with Variation. With generous donations of space, a start up grant from the Marin Arts Council, private donations and volunteer energy, ACF presented new contemporary art by 75 Bay area artists to 100,000 members of the general public free of charge. These exhibitions and events have created a large following and stimulated the local art community.

ACF specializes in presenting new art of the highest quality and artwork designed for specific sites. As we enter a new phase of presenting art in a variety of public spaces, we are inviting venues, curators and artists to participate in our 2011-2012 outreach program of exhibitions & events.

In March-April 2011, ACF will present an exhibition with an environmental theme in the Project Space at Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station. Other 2011-2012 exhibitions and artistic events will be in a number of alternative spaces: galleries, parks, public buildings, businesses, storefronts, etc.

If you want to participate as a sponsor, curator, coordinator, or artist please contact Claudia Chapline. info@cchapline.com.415.868.2308.

ADDING ON: Repetition with Variation l June 5-July 24, 2010


Art at the Cheese Factory and Marin Arts Council present

ACF’s First Off-Site / Site-Specific Exhibition

Adding On: Repetition with Variation is an exhibition of six artists: Carole Beadle, Jane Brucker, Nancy Macko, Carol Newborg, Kevin Nierman, and Anne Wolf

Chosen from throughout California, each artist creates large-scale installations or artworks from an accumulation of elements. All of the artists employ multiples that can be installed in diverse ways, allowing for flexibility and response to the installation environment. Some works are created using a process that is cumulative and incremental and is then completed by its relationship to a larger pattern or form. Other works feature subtle modulations and changes to elicit variety. Adding On: Repetition with Variation encourages the viewer to explore these curious differences, much as one might examine found seashells for their infinite variety.

Unorchestrated Saturday 5/22 fron 3-4pm

Monty Monty and Eileen Cormack and YOU in
Unorchestrated: a spontaneous, improvised, interactive musical event with reformed vintage and original instruments.
