Last week, the city’s contemporary and modern art scene was abuzz about ArtMRKT San Francisco. Now, art aficionados can revel at the scores of talented artists taking the stage at San Francisco’s galleries. Don't miss the works by DJ/musician/photographer Reuben Wu, husband and wife duo Michelle Grabner and Brad Killam, award-winning Christine Elfman, and the budding Yuh-Shioh Wong in the coming weeks.
Spring has sprung at San Francisco’s art galleries. Brian Gross Fine Art exhibits watercolor works in lovely pastels, while Scott Richards Contempory Art captures the plafyul nature of a new season with comic book heroes. Gallery Paule Anglim dazzles visitors with the magic of starlit skies and Ever Gold Gallery drags them back to earth with provacative photography and multimedia works.
For its inaugural art fair, Silicon Valley Contemporary draws an international roster of 50 exhibitors showcasing 300 artists. The styles and mediums of the works on display will vary – large-scale robot-produced paintings by the prolific graffiti artist Katsu, a sculpture made of razor blades by South Korean monk and artist Jungsan Senim, ethereal photographs of women by Isreali photographer Yigal Ozeri – but the selection is tied together by technology’s impact on art practices around the world.
San Francisco is hosting four spectacular solo shows this month.
If daylight savings hasn't already given you enough reason to get out on the town, these art openings should. Serge Sorokko Gallery hosts the eccentric Hunt Slonem, Alter Space features creative performances and displays by local artists, White Walls Project Space unveils portraits of the Tenderloin's overlooked, and Rudolf Bauer finally gets his due with a retrospective and a play.
This month, Eleanor Harwood Gallery takes a new approach, hosting two solo shows at once, while Brian Gross Fine Art showcases a series of paintings never seen in America. And, Catharine Clark Gallery exhibits a local artists’ reflection on the past. Enjoy.
Last weekend the modern art community was abuzz about the FOG Design + Art Fair at the Fort Mason Center. Art and design galleries exhibited furniture, fine art and design objects for the Bay Area's creative kind. Ride the wave of excitment about the local art scene by popping by these new art shows.
Many of us are settling into the first full week of work after the holidays…while adhering (or at least thinking about adhering) to New Year’s resolutions. Reward yourself for a job well done by indulging your creative side at five new art exhibits.
