James Nicholson Gallery today opened its doors to the public with an opening exhibition featuring work from the gallery's group of acclaimed international and American artists. James Nicholson Gallery features artists working in the mediums of photography, video, and computer-rendered art, and has a full schedule of exhibitions arranged for the rest of 2003 and throughout 2004.

Located in downtown San Francisco, James Nicholson Gallery is the only gallery in the city to focus exclusively on contemporary, photo-based art. Much of the work presented is large-scale, color photography that often has been digitally manipulated. This is complemented by a selection of more traditional black-and-white work from established photographers.

The gallery also features artists who work with "new media" art forms including installations, film, video, and computer-generated art. It seeks to bring unique and new types of work to San Francisco, a city that has historically been known for more traditional art forms.

"San Francisco is an international city and the art shown here should reflect that,"said James Nicholson, the gallery's owner. "The gallery will exhibit the most exciting art being created here in the U.S. as well as overseas. There is a new generation of outstanding young artists around the world who push the boundaries of their medium, and I'm eager to bring this work to the Bay Area."

The gallery's inaugural exhibition is a group presentation and previews many of the artists who will present solo shows at the gallery throughout 2004. Included are large-scale color photographs from Christoph Schreiber, Lars Tunbjörk, Nathalie Grenzhaeuser, Thomas Wrede, Sonja Braas, and David Maisel; black-and-white work from Anton Corbijn and Deborah Turbeville; videos from Jeroen Kooijmans; and computer-rendered artwork from Markus Wetzel.

Many of the gallery's artists are based in Europe and have had extensive exhibition histories abroad. Several overseas artists will be making their U.S. and/or West Coast debuts at the gallery over the next year. Works of the gallery's artists are part of important museum collections around the world.
