Gray Loft Gallery is pleased to present PROJECT 275, a group show of eight artists.  Project 275 is 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 accomplish that difficult thing, 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  
Yasmin Lambie-Simpson 


About Gray Loft Gallery:
Gray Loft Gallery has been referred to as a hidden gem in Jingletown, and noted by Kenneth Baker, SF Chronicle, in his Visual Arts Don’t Miss Column as “…A space gaining prominence in the Bay Area…”   The mission of the gallery is to provide exhibition opportunities for artists in a setting that is an alternative to the traditional gallery model. We hope to inspire, engage and celebrate artists in our community and beyond.  We acknowledge the achievements of emerging, mid-career and established artists – with an emphasis on those who live and work in the Bay Area, in a non-traditional art space.
