The gallery is open weekdays between 9 AM and 3 PM, and the public is always warmly invited to meet the artists on the second Sunday afternoon of every month between 1 PM and 4 PM. Along with the art and the stimulating conversation, a number of tasty treats are offered, and one can always top off the day with a stroll through the sumptuous 27 acre grounds of the cemetery. Gallery 1855 is for display only; purchases of any art must be arranged directly with the artists.

September 2014 Show at Gallery 1855
Dennis Letbetter, a Michigan native who has lived in San Francisco since 1979, is a freelance photographer, artist, and curator. His work, which has been exhibited internationally, spans portraiture, figure, cityscapes, seascapes, floral, miniature and design, and has found its way into in major public and private collections. The current show consists of color images of toys that have been slowly destroyed by Letbetter’s dog and taken on a new life in their ‘state of transformation.’ They exist, says Letbetter, as “unintentional sculpture.” The other images are panoramic cityscapes from an extensive, ongoing series. Those shown here were made in Moscow and Lisbon. Letbetter has run the Bonnafont Gallery, located in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, since 1995. In 2014, he introduced a quarterly magazine, Eyemag, devoted to his work. He has produced both commercially and with his publishing house, Editions Michel Eyquem.
Please join us for a free open house on Sunday, September 14th, where you can meet Dennis Letbetter, view his work, munch a bit, and finish it off with a stroll on our sumptuous grounds.
