Check out the new store!

We are excited to offer 8“x10” prints mounted right onto bamboo.

Also, new to the store — metal prints!   Dyes are infused directly into alu­minum, caus­ing the images to take on a lumi­nes­cence with vibrant col­ors and detail. Comes ready to hang with back frame.

And don’t for­get the 12“x18” prints.  These are lim­ited edi­tion and make great gifts for art lovers and collectors.

About the show and museum:
With this new group exhi­bi­tion at Grant’s Tomb Gallery we cel­e­brate the launch of The Col­lage Museum of San Fran­cisco.  Our vision with this new endeavor is to show­case local, national and inter­na­tional artists who work in the medium of col­lage, photo-montage, assem­blage and related disciplines.
There is a long and col­or­ful 200 year his­tory of artists and cre­ative indi­vid­u­als work­ing in this field from the early 19th cen­tury and through­out the 20th cen­tury as well as an explo­sion of collage-based artistry in these first decades of the 21st century.
The Col­lage Museum of San Fran­cisco will serve to spot­light these artists’ works and to offer a resource for the artis­tic com­mu­nity that may let us explore the lim­it­less visions of cre­ative imag­i­na­tion and encour­age and expand the Art of Collage.


About the Artists:


René Apal­lec

Broken Face

The works of the late René Apal­lec will be dis­played for the first time in the United States.  Mys­te­ri­ous and obscure, his com­po­si­tions call out to us from a long van­ished world that has since been swept away by the tumul­tuous era of the Great War.  Come and explore this rare glimpse into the mind of a lost and for­got­ten artis­tic genius.


Peter Lewis

Hats off to Londonium

Peter Lewis has been cre­at­ing his tech­ni­color dream­scapes for sev­eral years from his fabled Pacific “Island King­dom” (New Zealand).  His aston­ish­ing com­po­si­tions are like a psy­che­delic bar­ber mir­ror that expands end­lessly into infin­ity.  Buckle up for this wild ride and pre­pare to revel in his unique vision.


Francesca Berrini


Francesca Berrini is a skilled and accom­plished artist who’s work resem­bles a head-on col­li­sion between for­lorn bible sto­ries and the slightly off-kilter world of gram­mar school text books.  Dinosaurs frolic with beloved bib­li­cal per­son­ages.  Enor­mous insects covert with Dick and Jane.  Pro­to­zoa are soothed and cod­dled by famous his­tor­i­cal char­ac­ters.  Inspired (if slightly twisted) fun for the whole family.


Win­ston Smith

The Gospel According to Accordians

Win­ston Smith’s so-called “art” has defaced the cov­ers of count­less low-life punk bands from Dead Kennedys to D.O.A. to Green Day.  Through­out the last three and a half decades Win­ston has pur­sued a sin­gu­lar vision of artis­tic chaos and sub­lime imagery.  His com­po­si­tions range from the elu­sive to the stark.  View at your own risk.


Erik Chipchase — Mer­ce­nary Graphics

Screen Shot 2013-11-13 at 12.16.50 PM

From our pre­mier show to this new exhi­bi­tion our spe­cial guest artist Erik Chipchase has been respon­si­ble for a num­ber of iconic posters for events at Grant’s Tomb.  Erik’s clas­sic graphic style is a unique blend of Pro­le­tar­ian Deco and Retro-Chic.

His con­tri­bu­tions for the launch of the Col­lage Museum of San Fran­cisco are wel­comed and appre­ci­ated.  Come cel­e­brate the dawn­ing of a new error!


Casey Lewis

Casey Lewis has been work­ing with sev­eral art medi­ums for the past 35 years from stained glass to his true pas­sion, col­lage. With a heavy Dada influ­ence Casey has incor­po­rated fluid shapes and bold col­ors into his work. A true trip through abstract Jazz put to paper.
