Weekend Recap 1.11.09


(Author's note: Portions of this Weekend Recap are also published in the San Francisco Art Openings section of ArtBusiness.com)

Despite still being in the recovery stages of a mild cold, I set out on Friday afternoon for a full evening of San Francisco gallery viewings and openings. My first stop was Market Street Gallery, which was showing works on paper by a number of Bay Printmakers, including gallery owner, Ronald Newman:



Works by familiar artists Mike Kimball and Noah Dasho (below) are on display:



In addition to many printmakers, the show features some work by Stephen Wagner (below):


The show, which includes works by Javier Chalini (below), will be on display through January:


My next stop was Reaves Gallery, which had some works by Derek Nunn (below) on display:



The gallery's current exhibition of new works by David Imlay (below) is on display until February 4, with a reception on January 23:



Also on display are works by principal artists Blair Bradshaw (below) and Matthew Frederick:



My next stop was Bucheon Gallery, which was kicking off the new year with a preview of new works by artists familiar, such as Eckhard Etzold (below) and new:



Various mediums are represented, including painting, assemblage and works on paper:



Among the artists featured was Phillip Dvorak (below):



The show, which is meant to emphasize narrative works, is largely figurative, but varies in mood from playful, to somber, to downright dark:



The show, which includes work by Lordan Bunch (below), is up until February:



My next stop was Velvet da Vinci, which is featuring an installation by Portland artist, Hilary Pfeifer, for the month of January. Pfeifer's ecosystem of plant organisms are housed in a botanical greenhouse-like structure:



Despite their resemblances to species of the plant kingdom, her bonsai-like creations are reflections of more human conditions, with names like "Proles Nonfecundus":



With some "newer" species "growing" on the greenhouse structure itself, the installation has an enchanting quality that must be experienced in person:



Also on display are some pieces by Judith Hoyt (below):



My last stop was Gallery1988, for "Faces and Spaces" featuring Nathan Stapley (below):


In his first solo show, Stapley has over 80 small paintings on display through January:



Almost entirely watercolor or gouache on paper, Stapley's paintings are largely playful and lighthearted:

 

Loosely organized into sub-collections, like musicians, movie characters, or urban features, the portraits are of widely familiar subjects:
