7 – 8 PM – Dan Flanagan violin performance: The Bow and the Brush

During the pandemic concertmaster, violinist, composer and art collector Dan Flanagan started to play online concerts that were inspired by his extensive collection of local and international artists. He then commissioned local composers to write special pieces based on art works that spoke to them. Five of the artists whose works Dan has collected - Paul Gibson, Carol Jessen, Nikki Vismara, Rebecca Fox, and Nina Fabunmi - are Hunters Point Shipyard and Islais Creek Studios artists, and work by those artists will be shown in conjunction with the performance.

Donate to support the Shipyard Gallery

We are working towards our $100,000 goal to completely outfit our new Shipyard Gallery with chairs and tables, a projection screen, sound system and other equipment to support the space's multiple purposes: exhibit space, event space, classroom, and more. We are a little over halfway there and have started to install major components of the new A/V system.
