Lynn Rubenzer explores the mystical underpinnings of the urban landscape in her celebrated portraits of San Francisco. Steeped in the lyricism of the city’s famed architecture and soft coastal light, Lynn’s oil paintings aim to capture the manifestation of humanity in architecture with San Francisco’s unique balance of elegance and quirk.

Awarded ‘Critic’s Choice/Best Of Bay’ by San Francisco Magazine for her portraits of San Francisco, Lynn has exhibited her work at Stanford University, San Francisco City Hall, art galleries, private salons, distinguished non-profits and local haunts. In addition to painting, Lynn creates fantastical storefront window installations [most notably, 826 Valencia’s The Pirate Supply Store, a non-profit writing center in the Mission, from 2008-2011] and has completed several murals around the city including The Midway arts complex in Dogpatch [exterior], Bi-Rite Creamery on 18th & Dolores [interior] and, most recently, a 9 by 44ft mural on the ground level at the new Salesforce Transit Center.

Based in San Francisco, Lynn paints full-time at her Hunters Point Shipyard studio which she opens to the public twice a year [spring and fall] to share her latest work. Next studio event: Fall Open Studios October 20 & 21, from 11am-6pm.
