Painting/Drawing chair Linda Geary documents the visits she made to 100 Bay Area artists, curators, writers, and gallerists in 2011. A subjective recollection of each meeting is paired with a selection of vibrant colors, chosen by each subject from a stack of 285 color swatches hand painted by Geary. The result is a striking and original book that captures the vibrant spirit of the Bay Area art community. Numerous CCA affiliates were among those who spoke with Geary. Interviewees include Bill Berkson, Apsara DiQuinzio, Nathaniel Dorsky, Chris Duncan, Jens Hoffmann, Andrew Masullo, Lawrence Rinder, Alison Smith, and David Wilson.
