Art exhibit and actors workshop at Bayview Opera House

From the SF Bay View,
Jacques Terzian, 89, founded the largest artist colony in the nation at the Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco. An accomplished artist himself, the first retrospective ever of his work will be shown at the Bayview Opera House Ruth Williams Memorial Theatre in the heart of the Bayview Hunters Point district.

A celebration honoring Jacques is planned for May 15, 2-5 p.m.

The art exhibit, open from April 2 – June 5 at the BVOH, will feature two additional shipyard artists, Joe Sam and Stephen Namara. Stephen’s native country is Kenya, and he is known for his exquisite drawings of things and people with a surrealist touch. Joe Sam has made a name for himself in public art and for including children in his creative process. An example of his work can be seen in the tiles inside Bayview’s Martin Luther King Pool.
