Welcome to our seventh biennial celebration of the original exhibition,
from which this show (and the Web site) takes it name: The Nocturnes
- now closing out our Twenty-First
year! Installed at Gallery Sanchez, in San Francisco in 1991, that
critically-acclaimed show brought together ten intrepid San Francisco
Bay Area Night Photographers, to show 50-plus pieces, and was curated
by our own Tim Baskerville! It is in the spirit of that original
show - a spirit of discovery, experimentation, and mystery - that
we initiated these biennial shows, and indeed, the Web site itself!

This show continues in the relatively new format for our onlilne
exhibtions, in that the final show is limited to the selections
by the Jurors(s) - and each of those selected artists must have
TWO pieces selected. We think this makes for a "tighter"
presentation of mysterious, riveting nocturnal imagery. We hope
you enjoy it!
Also, be sure to visit The
Nocturnes Blog and let us know what you think of this exhibition.
We will be posting an annnouncement for the show there in the next
days - feel free to comment!
