In this exhibition, Alice Shaw applies 22 karat gold leaf to her photographs of Bolinas landscapes, including local flora and fauna, to emphasize her reverence for the natural world, which stems from her deep roots in coastal Marin.

Alice Shaw grew up in the 1960s and 70s at the historic White Gate Ranch that once stood above Stinson Beach with panoramic views of the surrounding land and sea. Her parents and their friends are renowned artists, and from an early age, Shaw carried a passion for creativity nurtured by her time as a student in the enriching Art Shops program of the Bolinas-Stinson School.

She went on to earn a BFA and an MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute. She often incorporates several media in juxtapositions that stretch the observer’s imagination in her creative practice.

Shaw has exhibited widely. There is a large-scale permanent installation of her work at Gate G5 at the San Francisco International Airport.
