Diana Krevsky

Over many decades residing and working in the San Francisco Bay Area, Diana Krevsky has
shown her art in numerous gallery exhibitions and art venues throughout the region and the United States.
Important solo exhibitions have been held at the International Pavilion of Humour in Montreal, Quebec, the
San Jose Museum of Art, and Southern Exposure Gallery in San Francisco. In 2018, the
McCune Collection of Rare Books in Vallejo, presented "FACE to FACE, An Exhibition of Painting,
Collage & Wood Works by Diana Krevsky".

Another significant recent exhibition was a showing of collage works on paper at the Richmond Art Center,
called, "The Cutting Edge". Additional stand-out exhibits were "Sweet N Low: International Show of Cute"
2017 at The Bedford Gallery, Walnut Creek; "Wisdom/Art/Resistance", at Artiszen Gallery, Vallejo; "The Art of
the Toy: Wild, Whimsical, and Magical", at Arts Benicia 2016; and "Politically Charged! Blue Line Arts", in
Roseville 2016.

Many of Krevsky's art works have found their way into numerous private collections in the SF Bay Area,
nationally, and as distant as Seoul, Korea. Several paintings belong to Vallejo's Touro University on
Mare Island, and, another currently installed at City Hall on loan from the Vallejo Historical Naval
Museum's permanent collection.

In the mid-1970s, Krevsky was actively involved for many years with a new, thriving alternative art gallery scene
at the time with Southern Exposure Gallery. A happenstance invitation during the early 1980s, lead to producing and hosting a weekly radio show (KUSF) covering the Bay Area visual and audio arts. The collection of over 70 radio program tapes, called Art Scene/Art Sound and Fine Arts Spectrum, now reside in Stanford University's audio archives.

In the mid-1990s, Krevsky was organizer of a Bay Area competition for an art tribute to the workers of Mare
Island Naval Shipyard, as a member of the historic Navy Base Closure Ceremony planning committee.
The public art, "Spirit Ship", is now located on a hilltop at the Mare Island Shoreline Preserve.
