As ACF's spring and summer seasons wind down, it's a great time to look ahead and consider NEW DIRECTIONS. Our 2012 Season will be publicized soon, but in the meantime, we are thrilled to announce Intersection, an exhibition and round-table on art as force for healing. Curated by Claudia Chapline and Jacqueline Mallegni, this invitational show will be viewable at the Commonweal Gallery on Mesa Road in Bolinas, July through September 2012.
ACF is working on finding new, exciting, accessible spaces for site-specific, innovative exhibitions throughout Marin County and the Greater Bay Area. We are also interested in creating opportunities for emerging curators.
Please read on and find information about more ACF news, including our new Autumn Online Benefit Auction with two pieces donated by Ruby Newman. New Art for you = funds for ACF. Here's that link for our 32 Auctions page.
We are always happy to hear from you with your ideas and suggestions.
I hope to see you soon.

ACF OFFERING 2nd TOUR OF FABLED
Located in the heart of Sonoma County, 70 miles north of San Francisco, and known internationally for its wineries and scenic pleasures, the Oliver Ranch is home to 18 remarkable site-specific installations; the most recent of which is Ann Hamilton's The tower where commissioned dance, poetry, theatre, and music performances take place. The picturesque 100-acre property is host to world-renowned sculpture, and the tours are a once-in-a-lifetime event. Stay tuned for information about reserving your spot.
Ruby Newman is a well established Bay Area artist working in a variety of mediums on canvas, paper and prepared panels. Her work is refreshingly vibrant, free spirited and spontaneous in both her use of color, brush stroke and response to subject matter. It is executed with a sense of immediacy and vitality.
