As I mentioned in Part I of this post, as part of my 'job' as an artist, I have been looking at a lot of art in San Francisco over the past six or seven weeks. Regretfully, I haven't posted about any of it. Here is a view of some Bay Area Art taken with my very amateur photography skills. I am starting to feel like my blog is too positive- geez, what a curmudgeon I am- so here's to being more honest with you. Because what we desperately need is another mouthy, cynical blogger in the world. So very desperately we do. What can I say- I'm just calling 'em like I see 'em. If you get offended, you can take pot shots at me on your own blog.
|Fancy marble digs inside and a jam-packed turnout.|
|Art in the Mission: You know it's a bad sign when there's a sandwich board.|
|Rachel Foster's prints hung in constellations and an old lady deciphering Rachel's print depicting the average suicide age for literary greats.|
|Yeesh. The worst kind of art might possibly be faux-naive "Outsider" art of Tom Waits and mohawked nerds with guitars.|
|Some how-does-he-make-it? screen-printing on canvas with beautiful colors.|
|The scene: prints, sculptures, etc|
|Outside in the sculpture garden I indulged in a Blue Bottle coffee served in an artisan-crafted Heath Ceramics mug, and the "Wayne Thibaud Layer Cake" frosted to look as delicious as his cake paintings. Awesome.|
