San Francisco’s Dolby Chadwick Gallery is hosting an exciting exhibit of Guy Diehl’s new still-life paintings called A Dialogue with Tradition. Diehl has been exploring the possibilities of still life painting for more than 30 years. His work is far different than what one normally thinks of for the genre; he brings in a darkness and beauty with themes of modernism, music, and architecture. Runs through September 28, 210 Post Street Suite 205.

Bella Feldman is well known for her highly crafted artwork that seamlessly melds blown glass and steel. Now, the Richmond Art Center is showcasing the first major retrospective of her work. Besides glass and steel sculptures, also on view will be paintings and collages. Feldman, a Bay Area native, draws on politics and current and cultural events for her artwork’s themes–as seen in her War Toys and Flasks of Fiction series. She is pioneer of female sculptors and this 50-survey of her work is a must see. Runs from September 14 to November 15, opening reception is on September 21 from 4 to 6 pm, 2540 Barrett Avenue.
