Originally from Pennsylvania, Timothy Buckwalter (born 1966) now lives in the Bay Area. Buckwalter’s paintings have been exhibited in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Portland. He has written about art for The East Bay Monthly, KQED FM, and San Francisco Chronicle. Over the last five years, Buckwalter helped pioneer the curating of online exhibitions, including his own yearlong weekly drawing shows. Recently he guest curated a show, based on Echo & The Bunnymen’s pop classic “Killing Moon,” for The Beholder. In July, he will be guest curating a show for Eyebeam’s Add-Art project. My Certain Fate — currently on view at Pharmaka in Los Angeles — is his first curatorial venture in the physical world.
