    San Francisco Arts Commission: Vast and Undetectable.

    Artists: Luca Antonucci, Reenie Charričre, Jonathon Keats, Phil Ross, Daniel Small, Heather Sparks, Gail Wight. Curated by Aimee Le Duc.

    Comment by AB: It's art about space-- macro space, micro space and all the spaces in between, or in other words, everything. The artists are on point; the work is worthy and makes sense within the context. The denouement? A show worth seeing.

    FFDG: Future Colors of America - Albert Reyes, Matt Furie, & Aiyana Udesen.

    Comment by AB: This combination solo and collaborative endeavor is dense with options. Albert Reyes handles the pop culture in-your-face-twice-and-then-once-again-just-to-make-sure department, Aiyana Udesen takes a more sensitive and benign approach but still gently roughs you up, and Matt Furie rounds it all out with his technicolor creatures from the land of nightmares and love.

    Incline Gallery: Cyclorama 2 - Alan Miknis and Jeff Rahuba.

    Comment by AB: Cyclorama is a 360 degree painting depicting events of the Civil War, located in GA where both Alan Miknis and Jeff Rahuba grew up; it's in Atlanta to be exact. According to the Cyclorama website, the painting weighs in at over 10000 pounds, is 358 feet in circumference, and all kinds of other impressive stats like that. In short, I wanna see it. But since I can't do that immediately, I'll have to settle for the Miknis/Rahuba rendition here, a collaborative contemporary black & white riff on the original. Also on the dance card are creepy doctored vintage album covers and curious furry things by Jeff Rahuba, and chockablock abstract/representational montaged compilations by Alan Miknis. This one's an eyeful.

    San Francisco Dump Artist in Residence Exhibitions: Terry Berlier - Even the Windmills are Weakening; Donna Anderson Kam - Beginning at the End; Ethan Estess - Stories from the Changing Tide.

    Comment by AB: Terry Berlier's sculptures take the prize here. A shopping cart and birdcage weighted with concrete, a 360 degree working piano-esque music making mechanism, a meandering spiral sonata made from chair and table leg sections, and a contorted pocket billiard affair. Too good! Also on the docket, works on paper by Donna Anderson Kam made entirely from salvaged materials. And in the annex gallery, a ropey whale tale to remind us that our deep sea friends deserve consistent and serious attention, a propane tank flower blossom, a duct-draped creature, and more by Ethan Estess.

    Park Life: Remainders - New Paintings by Sonya Derman.

    Comment by AB: Vague memories of this and that are expressed as figural and textual speculations, ever inconclusive. Are there any other kinds? When we're not quite sure, we conveniently fill in the blanks.
