Frey Norris Gallery, known for its cutting-edge contemporary and modern art, has a new home. And, as is customary in the art world, they're throwing a party to celebrate. Shelter yourself from the snow this weekend at Saturday's grand reopening soiree, where you can quaff a few Chimays and enjoy treats from the Chinese sticky bun food lady while you peruse the space's current exhibits—"Pangea: Art at the Forefront of Cultural Convergence" and"Exultation: Sex, Death and Madness in Eight Surrealist Masterworks."
The industrial-chic, Gensler-designed space features all artists under one roof (a whopping 5,100 square feet!), unlike the former Geary Street location, which was spread out on four separate floors. And the gallery's new digs are smack in the middle of the Yerba Buena Arts District, just a few blocks from SFMOMA, YBCA, MoAD, and the Contemporary Jewish Museum ... meaning first Thursday art walks require a lot less schlepping.
