Remember when Tai emerged from her Cher and Dionne makeover in Clueless as a hot new babe? That's kinda like what happened to 941 Geary, a former smog and auto emissions check shop in the Tenderloin that has recently been reborn as a lofty-ceiling-ed, 3,000-square foot gallery space. It's brought to us by SF tastemakers Justin Giarla and Leigh Cooper, the minds behind such local game-changing galleries as as White Walls and the Shooting Gallery.
Some cool stuff going down this weekend at White Walls Gallery and Shooting Gallery. Their spring exhibits are debuting and once again, the galleries are playing host to an exciting array of works from emerging local artists.
New Territory at White Walls pays homage to the Left Coast with new works from Henry Gunderson, Akira, Cheryl Molnar, Robert Burden and Mark Warren Jacques. This is a crew with a rep for breaking ground through their new conceptual and aesthetic approach of West Coast living. It's definitely worth checking out - the works incorporate comics, notebook doodles, skateboard culture and collages.
