Summer Solstice Celebration Exhibit

June 21 - 23, 2019


The Artists Loft invites you to celebrate the Sun, the Great Chariot in the sky, on its annual journey across the sky as it enters the Constellation of Cancer, and the archetype of the Zodiac sign, Cancer (the Crab) and all that it stands for. This mystical orb has long been revered by ancient cultures, who created time charts, planted and harvested, moved their people from place to place, and created great monuments in its honor.


This Celebration starts on the first day of Summer and features unique, original painting, photography, poetry and interactive installation work by local San Francisco Bay Area artists and a guest artist from Los Angeles.
