The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) Galleries celebrates the opening of a new, and greatly expanded 3000-square-foot gallery space in the historic War Memorial Veterans Building with three distinct exhibition projects featuring works by thirteen regional artists.

The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) Galleries is incredibly honored to present works by Bay Area artist Susan O’Malley in an intimate exhibition, Do More of What You Love. Do More of What You Love presents a selection of Susan’s work, giving a cross-section of her overall practice. From her community advice and inspirational signs to Pep Talk Squad, this exhibition will celebrate Susan’s voice as an artist by presenting images of works from throughout her career.

Susan O’Malley centered much of her artistic output on the effects of positive messaging and the myriad complexities of language, offering and soliciting advice and instructions, and how the body relates to various environments ranging from forests to manicured lawns in South Bay suburbs. Susan’s passing at a young age in early 2015 rocked our community to its core. As the SFAC Galleries begins a new chapter, we celebrate both the vibrancy and power of her creativity and the impact she had as an artist, curator, and beautiful spirit.
