My New Solo Show - "Ethereal Landscape" at Themes + Projects opening night is Saturday, February 3, 6pm - 8pm by Sahba Shere


Let's begin 2018 with an artful start when my new solo show, Ethereal Landscape, opens on Saturday, February 3 in San Francisco at Minnesota Street Project.

I'd be honored to have you + your guests join me for special Opening Night reception on Saturday Feb 3, 6 pm - 8 pm .  The show runs Feb 3 - March 31 at Themes + Projects Gallery. 

I'll be hosting Salons Saturday, March 3 and Saturday, March 31, so please save the dates and invitations will follow!

Ethereal Landscape features new works from Bay Area artist Sahba Shere. This collection of dream-like paintings reflect her meditations on the natural world, imbuing abstract landscapes with translucence and tranquility. The show emphasizes Sahba’s ability to create quietly beautiful layered works with subtlety and lightness, and yet also depth and texture. What you see on her canvases – when you are with them for a while – magically changes depending on the angle from which you view them and the ever-changing light.


Save the date for my next salon! Women, Art and Power with special guests Bridget Quinn and Julie Lythcott-Haims by Sahba Shere


Thursday, April 13
7pm to 9pm

Please join me for a very special salon – “Women, Art and Power” – featuring a conversation with the wildly artistic, creative and powerful Bridget Quinn and Julie Lythcott-Haims!

Bridget Quinn is a writer, art history scholar and educator. Her new book Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History is a feisty look at the lives, legacies and artworks of fifteen significant – and too often ignored – women artists. Named a Top 10 by Publishers Weekly for Spring 2017 in Memoirs/Biographies, O, the Oprah Magazine says of Broad Strokes, “Your Art History 101 syllabus just got a lot more fun.” Julie Lythcott-Haims writes, thinks, and speaks about the human condition. She is particularly interested in each of us having the chance to make our way in the world and in the obstacles that can get in the way. Her memoir on race, Real American, will be out in August. She is also the author of the New York Times bestseller How to Raise an Adult which gave rise to a TED talk that became one of the top talks of 2016.

Sahba Shere is a Bay Area-based artist whose work is artfully inspired by her world travels and deeply influenced by nature and meditation. A painter and abstract photographer, Sahba’s works can be found everywhere from private residential art collections, luxury hotels, and corporations, to art galleries, universities, public venues, and art shows across the U.S. and around the globe. Passionate about bringing art into people’s everyday lives, Sahba regularly hosts art-inspired special events at her Palo Alto studio and curates a popular salon series that brings together those who love art and the art of good conversation.

Please message me for an invitation. 

Interviewed by NPR's Rachael Myrow! by Sahba Shere

I was very honored to be included in this recent KQED - NPR arts piece about efforts to keep Palo Alto affordable for artists. 

...Of course, a couple dozen studios won’t change overall real estate trends in a city where top-of-the-line commercial office space rents for just under $100 a square foot. But Cubberley does make a big difference to the lives of individual artists, like Palo Alto abstract expressionist painter Sahba Shere.
Shere occupies an old chemistry classroom at Cubberley, where there’s plenty of wall space for paintings that are dynamic, colorful and large-scale; some of Shere’s canvases stretch six feet wide and five feet tall  see full article here

Pop-up art exhibit at NASA by Sahba Shere

It was an honor to exhibit my work in a Pop-up art show at NASA Research Center a few weeks ago! 

Thank you to Monique Giggy and all the good people at Singularity University. I was inspired by the bright and ambitious dreamers incubating each of their stunning innovations and the exponential promise to change the world for good!
