Chuck Eckart's art show is up at Toby's Gallery, to Oct. 2. M-Sat 9-5, Sun 10-5. Right now there won't be a reception & won't be a banner outside Toby's, per Chuck, so I'm trying to get the word out. FYI- the work doesn't show so well on a thumbnail....so, his photo...If you've been (since opened Sept. 2), there's now a paper pad for writing him (and Alice) comments on his work & good wishes. Please tell friends...and give yourself a chance to let the paint's surface & depths work on your imagination.
Here's a link (with quite a name!) to his bio, on a site about SF's "Golden Age" of advertising: https://geezersgallery.com/chuck-eckart/
And a quote about his work: "Eckart locates, or brings into being, a focal plane where we can dwell on the pleasure of seeing paint regain the materiality it sacrifices to subject matter in most figuration. On the same plane, we experience what anyone who knows painting will recognize as real expertise." - Kenneth Baker, "Artist's bring color and light back into focus", San Francisco Chronicle
