Heroe Camille Blatrix at CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco, CA Curated by Anthony Huberman September 8 – November 19, 2016 Patience is important in this world. Arriving in Heroe at the CCA Wattis Instituteis like finding a lost friend not frantic and angry but silent, patiently waiting for you. You are confused because nothing is asked of you, all is delivered independently. Here, you don’t have to lift a finger, the room is not rigged it sings and dances effortlessly for you. Cam...

20160407161942-drunk_kiss Review - Josephine Taylor : Teenagers are Beautiful  
Josephine Taylor at Catharine Clark Gallery April 23rd - May 28th
Posted 5/22/16

Currently on show at the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco is "Teenager are Beautiful' a completely none ironic title for a rigorous and subtly sensational exhibition by San Francisco based artist Josephine Taylor. Within the gallery is a series of artworks demonstrating the most recent manifestation of a drawing practise that Taylor has devotedly explored since her MA at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1992. In contrast to her previous large scale ink drawings where Taylor would us... [more]

Mark Baum at Krowswork January 30th - March 12th
Posted 2/26/16

Krowswork’s current exhibition is a carefully considered retrospective of the little known but deeply respected artist Mark Baum. Baum, whose life spanned 1903 to 1997, had his last solo exhibition in 1969 at the Ogunquit Gallery in Maine. However, in 1983 the Metropolitan Museum acquired two of his paintings, he received a Rothko grant in 1972, and is included the Whitney, Frick, Harriman, and Stieglitz collections. Polish and Jewish, at the age of 16 Baum deftly walked through the border of occupied Germany into... [more]

Grisha BruskinMeyerovich Gallery, San Francisco, California Recommendation by DeWitt Cheng VAS Weekly Newsletter December 18, 2015 Is the Age of Theory waning, at last? Picasso’s sculptures are garnering raves at MOMA; the next big thing in art, opine certain tastemakers, is figuration; and Robert Hughes’ new posthumous book will extol skill and commitment. San Francisco art lovers who have been crying in the wilderness for lo these many years may want to check out the paintings and sc... [more]

Grisha Bruskin at Meyerovich Gallery November 5th, 2015 - February 29th
Posted 1/4/16

ARTSY EDITORIAL BY GRACE-YVETTE GEMMELL DEC 13TH, 2015 4:59 PM Russian-American artist Grisha Bruskin is hard to pin down in terms of genre. Working within the context of mythologies and religions, particularly tied to his own Jewish heritage, and their associated iconographies, Bruskin takes an original approach. While rejecting the Socialist Realism style that was sanctioned in the USSR, where he spent his early career, he skillfully engages traditions of kitsch, social realism, and romanticism, and a...

at SFAQ [Project Space] April 24th, 2015 - April 25th, 2015
Posted 4/29/15

I entered the small, unassuming gallery space as a bearded head popped out from the back of the room and said, “Are you here to get your MFA?” “Yes!” I replied cheerfully. Because I was. I read that I could get an MFA in just one day at the Tenderloin Institute of Art, hosted by SFAQ, and I was immediately on board. If showing up was the application process, I was already excelling with flying colors. The man introduced himself as Dean Jeremiah Jenkins, and together... [more]

kathryn arnold, solo exhibition at Triton Museum of Art February 20th, 2015 - March 29th, 2015
Posted 2/20/15 In her first solo museum exhibition, West Valley College art department chairwoman Kathryn Arnold explores the concept of language and the ways in which language interprets what we experience. Aptly titled, "The Impact of Language," the exhibition opens on Valentine's Day at the Triton Museum of Art and runs through March 29. In this exhibit, Arnold showcases about a dozen works, including large-sc... [more]

Language Explored in Kathryn Arnold’s Solo Show By Melissa McKenzie If someone is characterized as “short,” “chipper” or “stubborn,” it will immediately implant an image about the person being described. Although not often contemplated, there are strong implications associated with language. And, despite there being no standard of what the line is for “... [more]

San Francisco’s Iconic Lexington Club to Shut Its Doors  
11/3/14 Posted 11/3/14

In 2009, I assisted with A Trip Down False Memory Lane, an exhibition curated by Jessica Silverman. Featuring works depicting real or imagined memories of the Lexington Club, we installed the show on the patchy maroon walls of San Francisco’s iconic dyke bar. Each image made palpable the fact that the space is so much more than four walls and some bar stools. A destination for lesbians from all over and a staple for many younger city dwellers, the Lex is where a spectrum of LBTQ patrons have... [more]

Street art thrives on large spaces — giving a huge wall to a street artist is like giving a little kid free range of an entire playground. On a sizable concrete wall, street artists can bring all sorts of artistic visions to life. So what happens when you make that surface considerable smaller? That’s the humorous take that “Honey, I Shrunk the Streets” will explore at 1AM Gallery. The show will feature mini billboards, brick walls, trucks and dumpsters courtesy of TY... [more]

Mungo Thomson at Kadist Art Foundation September 17th, 2014 - November 1st, 2014
Posted 9/18/14

Mungo Thompson fancies himself clever. He thinks that public affirmations of private struggle are curious, and can’t wrap his pretty little middle class head around the idea that they might be empowering. He likes Bruce Nauman’s neon spiral form… he likes the idea that it takes up a commercial vehicle to advertise non-commodity slogan. He thought it would be cute to rifle through self-help books and AA 12-step guides, pick out phrases, and pay somebody to fabricate neon spir... [more]

Forrest Bess at Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive June 11th, 2014 - September 14th, 2014
Posted 9/4/14

Among the giants (Rothko, Still, and Pollock) represented by the Betty Parsons gallery in the 50’s and 60’s, there roamed the small but potent work of an artist named Forrest Bess. He hailed from Bay City, Texas, a bait fisherman and oil rig roughneck by day, and a conduit for the visualization of eternal truths by night. Parsons heard his name through the grapevine, and when she came to Texas, she ate him up with her silver spoon. Parsons mounted no less than six solo exhibits of Bes... [more]
