Weekend Recap 10.13.08
It was a busy weekend on the Arteaser project, visiting open studios and gallery openings. With some artists opening their doors on Friday, the first weekend of SF Open Studios was in full swing by Saturday afternoon when I stopped by Fort Mason to see Javier Chalini, along with other Bay Printmakers, including Mike Kimball, Peter Doolin, Fernando Reyes, Noah Dasho, and Ingrid Caras. If Fleet Week traffic kept you away from the north side, be sure to see works by the Bay Printmakers on exhibit at the Falkirk Cultural Center in Marin through the end of the year.
By Saturday night, I was at Space Gallery in Polk Gulch, attending the opening of "Thought of you as my mountain top." Featuring works by SFMOMA employees, including Nining Muir, the exhibit will be on display through October 26:
On Sunday afternoon, I was at Reaves Gallery in Hayes Valley, where Brian McDonald was holding his open studios:
