Gray Loft Gallery presents PROJECT 275, a group show of eight artists who are part of a dynamic new art collective in Redwood City, which was established in early 2014 as a venue for making, viewing, and discussing visual art in its many guises.  The members of the group are all friends, which unites them far more than any discernible stylistic similarities.  Their ambition is to survive and thrive as artists in the midst of Silicon Valley.  The group is comprised of painters, printmakers, collage artists, book artists, and one of their spaces is an independent art gallery.  In addition to already having had several exhibitions together at a variety of outside venues, these eight artists are currently engaged in producing a printmaking portfolio.   
Participating artists are:
Lois Anderson

Martha Branner 
Peter Foley
Yasmin Lambie-Simpson
Pat Mayer
Julia Nelson-Gal
Michael Pauker
