Underground Art Royalty Gracing SF

Thursday, May 7, Portland-based artist Damon Soule opens his new solo show, Same Loud No, of paintings and an installation at Fecal Face Dot Gallery in Hayes Valley. Soule hasn't shown in SF since 2006, but had a hit show at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC last year. The opening reception goes from 6-9 pm. Fecal Face Dot Gallery 66 Gough Street @Market
While you're over in Hayes Valley, stop by Oxenrose Salon for the opening of Tahiti Pehrson's show Scala Naturae or "Nature's Ladders" starting at 7:30 pm. Pehrson's ridiculously intricate latticeworks are a sight to behold. The Moore Brothers will be doing a special performance at 8pm, and there will be a limited number of handmade, screened t-shirts from Pehrsons own paper cuts for sale (a bargain at $12). There are four designs and each design will be an edition of between one and six, so get in there if the fancy strikes you. Oxenrose Salon, 448 Grove Streeet
Friday night, the San Francisco Arts Commission is treating the city to something extraordinary. Michelle Blade, Jason Jagel, Dan Nakamura, Ferris Plock, Clare Rojas, Deth P. Sun, Kelly Tunstall, Porous Walker, Marci Washington and the Hamburger Eyes collective will be displaying art and installation at 401 Van Ness in conjunction with an SFAC Gallery Window Installation by Chris Duncan, Maya Hayuk, Kyle Ranson, and Brion Nuda Rosch at 155 Grove Street.

Participating artist Kelly Tunstall has posted a set of photos from the past couple weeks of preparing the space. More details on the opening of Trace Elements; Opening reception: May 8, 6-8pm at 401 Van Ness Avenue



Saturday night we have a triple header at Shooting Gallery, White Walls and Gallery Three. Lucky for you, they're all basically in the same building. Words can't do these artists justice, so behold the previews for their upcoming shows at the three galleries this Saturday - May 9th, 2009 from 7pm - 11pm and showing through June 7th, 2009. 839 Larkin Street @Geary
