RayKo’s Spring Residency Show!
Instead of selecting just one resident artist for our 6-month spring residency, the owner of RayKo saw so much talent in this group of applicants, that he picked five. They are pursuing everything from cliché verre prints to building giant site-specific cameras that a grown man can fit inside (because that man also happens to be a human shutter). This exhibition features new work by Carlos Chavarria, Adam Donnelly & David Janesko, Ron Moultrie Saunders, and Wenxin Zhang. Come meet these talented artists on the opening night of June 25th!
RayKo Photo Center & Gallery is a comprehensive photographic facility, located near the Yerba Buena Arts District, with resources for anyone with a passion for photography. Established in the early 1990’s, RayKo Photo Center has grown to become one of San Francisco’s most beloved photography darkroom spaces; it includes traditional b&w, color and alternative process labs as well as a state-of-the-art digital department, a professional rental studio, galleries, and the Photographer’s Marketplace – a retail space promoting the work of regional artists. RayKo also has San Francisco’s 1st Art*O*Mat vending machine and a vintage 1947 black & white Auto-Photo Booth and a retail store that sells all types of used film cameras, from view cameras to Leicas to a build-your-own Nikon station. Everything you need to make any type of photograph!
RayKo Gallery serves to advance public appreciation of photography and create opportunities for regional, national and international artists to create and present their work. RayKo Gallery offers 1600 square feet of exhibition space and the Photographer’s Marketplace, which encourages the collection of artwork by making it accessible to collectors of all levels. RayKo also has an artist-in-residence program to further support artists in the development of their photographic projects and ideas.
