We'll visit the private studio and sculpture garden of Bay Area artists Shawn HibmaCronan and Peter Dreyfuss. First we'll tour the studio building itself, a fascinating place intimately tied to the history of the Bay Area. The building was originally built as a gun range for the Navy during World War II before it was abandoned and more recently converted into artists studios. Adding to the serene landscape of the studio is the wild life conservatory directly behind it. After touring the building we'll take a look at Shawn and Peter's workshops where they will present their most recent projects and give a live demonstration of welding, laser cutting and other techniques they use to create their art. We'll finish the tour enjoying locally produced wine and hors d'oeuvres with the artists in their sculpture garden, overlooking the bay and the beautiful city of San Francisco.
Max is the director of Bond Latin Gallery and founder of Maximilian Contemporary. He grew up in the Bay Area and received a BA from UC Berkeley in 2013. Peter Dreyfuss (one of the artists who will be helping with the tour), has lived in the Bay Area for over thirty years and has worked with metal sculpture for almost two decades. His work has been shown in a number of art galleries in San Francisco and Oakland. Shawn HibmaCronan (another artist who will be helping with the tour) has worked as a professional artist for over a decade, showcasing his metal sculptures in various galleries, private residencies, and museums such as the Oakland Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Tokyo, Japan.
