It wouldn't be spring without baseball. Nor would it be spring without the annual "Art of Baseball" exhibition at the George Krevsky Gallery. Now in its 12th year, the exhibit opens with a reception on Saturday, May 9th, and will be on view through Saturday, June 20th.
This year's theme – everything that is old is new again – refers fond memories of days gone by and reliving those days today. Brought together are talented artists from all over the country who depict the game that obsesses fans of all ages. For five weeks the gallery's walls will bring back memories, with artworks by more than 25 artists; men and women who interpret Abner Doubleday's invention through an artist's eye.
Opening this year's show Saturday, May 9th, 4 - 6:00, Robert Flynn Johnson will present, "55 Years and Counting: Reflections on Baseball and Being a Long-Suffering Giants Fan."
Robert Flynn Johnson is Curator Emeritus, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and author of many books, including "The Face in the Lens: Anonymous Photographs" 2009.
