3 Stellar San Francisco Art Openings to Visit This Week!Author:Julia Walsh
It’s a quiet week in the San Francisco art arena, but it’s about quality, not quantity, isn’t it? This week there are three superb openings to visit, from the heart of Union Square to the depths of the SFSU campus. Come check out what’s happening where.
Days to Come at 5 Claude Lane Gallery
5 Claude Lane Gallery presents Days to Come, a group exhibition curated by Crystal Townsend. In essence, the show is an introduction to a number of the high-caliber artists who will be featured at the gallery throughout 2012. Thus, the work, from more than a dozen Bay Area artists, will vary, ranging in media and subject matter, from Steve MacDonald’s boldly gilded and embroidered canvases to JR Doty’s surreal and hauntingly nostalgic photos of aging theme park rides. Exhibiting artists will include Peter Adamyan, Helen Bayly, Alex Braubach, Chelsea Brown, Rachel Burnstein, Mia Christopher, JR Doty, Audrey Erickson, Kristin Farr, Serge Gay Jr., Nicole Gervacio, Bo Heimlich, Steve MacDonald, Lucien Shapiro, Paul Solis, Alphonzo Solorzano, and Daniel Valadez. The exhibition opens Thursday, Jan. 26 with a reception from 6 to 10 p.m..
5 Claude Lane Gallery, 5 Claude Ln., 415-956-1310.
Slap in the Face at The Art Gallery at San Francisco State University
The Art Gallery in the Cesar Chavez Student Center at SFSU presents Slap in the Face: A Tribute to Sticker and Graffiti Art, curated by Jordan Ayoub, Carolyn Ho, Ali Hawkes and Jessy Gaumann. Heralding the rise of sticker art, a movement from the ’70s that has become a global phenomenon, the exhibit features stickers that are derogatory, humorous, refined, and crass in emotion, and reveals the motivation, goals, and influence of the cost-effective artwork. The exhibit opens Friday, Jan. 27 with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. and will be on view through Feb. 15.
The Art Gallery at San Francisco State University, 1650 Holloway Ave., Terrace Level, 415-338-1112.
