Located on the second floor of Building C in Fort Mason Center, C260 showcases a range of art by Bay Area artists. The offices are open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and closed on all major holidays.

San Francisco painter, Jary Niebur will show his most recent work from Hexaconfig, a series he began in 2016 as a very literal homage to the smallest perfect number: six. The initial canvases feature six one-inch squares. Throughout the series, which explores complex problem-solving with limited resources, Niebur continues to position these squares into new configurations. Despite their small size, the contrasting colors and positions of the squares create an ongoing dialogue and illustrate the minimal input needed to create a maximum outcome.

San Francisco artist Lola puts process at the center of her art practice, letting her amorphous compositions find their natural expression in fiberglass resin. Initially attracted to resin’s high-gloss finish, she now uses it to create a third dimension in her colorful, abstract paintings.

Painter David Becker will exhibit a series of large-scale acrylic paintings, created while listening to his favorite pieces of music and spoken word. The artist often played these pieces over and over until the sound emanating from his speakers drowned out the noise of the city.
