Biography

Fred Martin is well known in the Bay Area as a past Director of the College (1965-1974) and Dean of Academic Affairs (1983-1992) at the San Francisco Art Institute, where he continues to teach as a Emeritus professor. He is also a former columnist for Artweek magazine (1976-1992), but at heart he has always been a painter, and this Ever Gold show delves deep in exposing the roots of the 87-year-old painter’s work, and those of his friends, in the 1950s. Graduating from the University of California, Berkeley (BA 1949, MA 1954), Martin, with classmates Sam Francis and Jay De Feo, entered into the fresh terrain of new thought and currents in art dominated by Abstract Expressionism. Receiving additional instruction at the California College of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art institute), he studied under David Park, Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still. While there, he came into contact with fellow students, who would go on to open Six Gallery.
