What: The Preservation of Summer by Julianne Quimby

When: July 17–July 30

Where: The Ramp Gallery, a community curated space at 934 Brannan St. (between 8th and 9th)

As an attempt to capture the unique visual and social landscapes of Portugal, Spain, and Israel, the series The Preservation of Summer by artist Julianne Quimby, utilizes the visual language inherent to photography to explore notions of time and memory. Quimby says of the series, “Many of the scenes in these photographs, like the night—long party in Israel’s West Bank, reflect moments that cannot be replicated exactly as I experienced them.  Serving as a method of preserving my past, these photographs activate my memory and transport me back in time.”

Julianne Quimby is a graduate of University of California, Santa Cruz and a recent transplant to San Francisco.  She has participated in the SOMArts internship program and is actively engaged with the Bay Area arts community.  An avid traveler with a passion for culture, language and art, Quimby hopes to pursue a career in cultural diplomacy.
