Weekend Recap 1.25.09

(Author's note: Portions of this Weekend Recap are also published in the San Francisco Art Openings section of ArtBusiness.com, as well as the Picks & Reviews section of Artslant)

Despite having previewed the David Imlay (below) show at Reaves Gallery a couple weeks ago, I stopped by the opening on Friday night and was pleased to find that several new pieces had been added. The show is up until February 4:



Next, I made my way to Zonal Home, also in Hayes Valley, which is showing works by Dale Eastman through February:



Drawing from her background in journalism, Eastman creates delicate wall hangings and installations that explore the thoughts and ideas beyond words, using visual references to writing on paper with fabric and thread:



In one elegant installation, Eastman has sewn a short story one word at a time and coiled the composition in a glass jar:



Amongst the artists regularly on display was Barbara Kleinhans, whose abstract landscapes fit well with the mood of Zonal's farmhouse antiques:



Local artist, Phoebe Seligman has several figurative works on display downstairs:



The brightness and gloss of Lola's resin and acrylic pieces are in contrast to the rustic ambiance of much of the store, but the combination give a distinctively modern feel:



Back upstairs, Leslie Morgan's aquatic themed prints and paintings are varied in technique and style:


Consistent with Zonal's theme, Nicole Baugass' mixed media pieces mix pop-art with nostalgic retro:
