Dave Schubert’s deep commitment to documenting life on the street and his scholarship of the history of photography equal a powerful body of work. Often risking his own well-being Schubert makes images very few of us would dare to take, even if we were to witness them.

Electric Works presents
Recent Work by Dave Schubert
November 1- 30
Opening reception Friday, November 1, 6-8 PM

Please join us for Dave Schubert’s first solo show at the gallery. Schubert’s deep commitment to documenting life on the street and his scholarship of the history of photography equal a powerful body of work. Often risking his own well-being Schubert makes images very few of us would dare to take, even if we were to witness them. The body of work will focus on images made in the Bay Area over the last decade, including many never-before-exhibited photographs. Schubert will be using both the main gallery and our project space to install this work which will include black and white and color photographs.

Harvey Milk Day

Yep, first ever official Harvey Milk Day is upon us! And tweets and blogs abound, good people. We, however are trapped in the gallery on another beautiful and seemingly rarely so day! But, you know, we get Mondays off, so it’s not that bad. And. . . well, Pandora seems to be playing all the right things today, so we feel that the AI’s are on our side as well.

On to news, and it’s that our next show is right around the corner. Bur first: I’m going to show you some of our current show’s installation shots.

Where were we? Harvey Milk Day. Plaques have been placed. Ribbons cut, and now we’re ready to show you our promo image from Dan NIcoletta’s first solo show in the Bay in almost 15 years. Long time coming, and it’s a beautiful, stunning show.

“More Glitter—Less Bitter” open June 4, 6-8PM. Click the image for complete press release.
