This Must Be the Place is about how their journey towards each other resulted in finding a sense of home. It represents the surprises revealed in their discovery of the cultures, landscapes, and opportunities that helped them find their artistic voices, together and separately, and now keep them firmly rooted in San Francisco.

Eric Rewitzer is a printmaker. Annie Galvin is a painter. Chance brought them to the west coast, each arriving in the late ‘80s to chase their dreams. Eric, born and raised on the industrial shores of Lake Michigan, boarded the California Zephyr train west from Chicago in 1987. Annie, born and raised in Ireland, emigrated to San Francisco in 1989, two weeks before the earthquake. The two met in Berkeley in 1998, and were married in 2001. In 2006, they founded 3 Fish Studios, which now serves as both a studio and a gallery, connecting them to the artistic fabric of the Bay Area through shows, classes, and events.
