Point Richmond Art Collective Announces Expansion of Gallery and a New Associate

Richmond, California (EastBayDaily) — The Point Richmond Art Collective is a group of local artists whose works cover a wide range of styles. The Collective has its roots in deWitt Gallery and Framing, featuring Jim deWitt’s well-known marine paintings and Pam’s deWitt’s high-end fine art framing. It is located in historic Point Richmond, a small community in West Contra Costa County attracting artists and craftsmen from around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Point Richmond Art Collective will be expanding their gallery to nearly triple its original size. Expanding from 750-square-feet to 2,000-square-feet will allow the facility to accommodate 30 artists, considerably more than the previous number of eight. Don Carlson, a found metal sculptor, recently joined the Collective and will be presenting his works in the gallery.

”Come to Point Richmond Art Collective and take your picture with BuBBa-Q and I’ll give you $10,” said Don Carlson. “Photos can be submitted until I have spent $100.”

Don Carlson uses scrap metals and turns them into works of art. His renowned work is Bubba-Q, a fully functional barbecue grill that stands tall and features dreads. His mix of sculpture and furniture is marked by ingenious design, disarming humor and a curious beauty.

“Don is the first of many artists who’ll be joining us,” said Pamela deWitt, Gallery Director of Point Richmond Art Collective. “With our expansion, we hope to welcome many more artists to our gallery.”

Artists from all over the Bay Area have had the opportunity to sell their work in an established gallery since 2000. Customers can find an impressive variety of art at the Collective. Point Richmond Art Collective is the home of world-renowned maritime artist Jim deWitt who is creating some great new work with the America’s Cup in the San Francisco Bay Area. Being part of a cooperative gallery gives an artist the opportunity to exhibit and sell their work with very little investment. “All members joining the gallery in the month of August will get their first month free,” Pamela added.
