Impromptu SF Art Day

On Saturday, very spur of the moment, we darted in to the city to check out a few shows. We got a late start, but several of the galleries were having openings, which allowed us to view art into the evening, check out Valencia Street on a hoppin' Saturday night, and have pizza at the infamous Little Star . : )

We were very happy to visit several galleries which are new (or at least new to us): 941 Geary, Guerrero Gallery, and Rosenthal Gallery. Installation was underway for a new show at Fort Mason's Artist Gallery for an exhibition which looks like it'll be great (show opens Thursday). Also glad to see Michelle Muenning's beautiful paintings at Jack Fischer.

This wall of ephemera is part of the show at John Berggruen; it accompanies a show of works by Alexander Gorlizki (in collaboration with an Indian miniature master.) The works are interesting-- but I was even more drawn in by this collection, like a wall in an artists' studio, covered with sketches & inspiration. (click on the final 4 images to enlarge.)
