Spencer Keeton Cunningham
Heron Arts is pleased to present Farewell San Francisco: A Retrospective by Spencer Keeton Cunningham, an anthology of works by the prolific artist who is being wrongfully evicted after residing 12 years in his San Francisco apartment. This show will feature a collection of works that now must go. Cunningham has been on the road for the last two years, while maintaining his permanent residence in SF, and has come to say pack up his things and goodbye to the city with a farewell exhibition. Farewell San Francisco opens on Saturday October 8th, 2016 with an opening reception from 7-10 PM. It is free and open to the public. The exhibition will be open by appointment until the end of October.

Along with his solo works, there will be paintings for sale from his close friends, painting collaborators and roommates: Erlin Geffrard aka Kid Kreyola, Daisy Ortiz, and their son Daylin Geffrard. The four lived together in their house in San Francisco for numerous year and exhibited frequently in San Francisco and abroad, notably in 2013 at the Wenying Highland Art Museum in Guangzhou, China.
