Chris Corales (1969-2018)

It is with tremendous sadness that we share the news of the death of Chris Corales, an artist and friend who had been a part of our gallery since its early days. Chris grew up in the Bay Area and was an early member of what was to become the Mission School. His great sense of humor and personal warmth embodied his strong sense of community. He leaves behind many friends in the San Francisco area and beyond.

Our heartfelt sympathies go out to all of Chris’s family and friends. A memorial will take place in Philadelphia in June, and in San Francisco on Sunday, June 17 at Southern Exposure. To contribute to Chris’s family a fund has been set up for present and future expenses. Please visit:
