George Lawson Gallery: John Millei - Selected Paintings.
Comment by AB: John Millei's bold broad-brush color-rich abstracts distill down into portraits and figures as you take a longer closer look. And when you look closer yet, you begin to differentiate the subtleties of his subjects as well as appreciate the effortlessness with which they are painted. Nicely done and worth a visit.

Luna Rienne Gallery: REC - New Work by Romanowski.
Review by RWM: Beautiful use of wood and materials for art which can't but help display movement. The works are solid, but some of the components have trajectory and associated emotions. Wonderful pieces that startle and invigorate.
Comment by AB: Nobody recycles scrap wood and occasional rusted remnants like Romanowski. Some of his assemblages incorporate plants; practically all of his finishes are natural. The work is polished, professional, precise, and everything fits together like perfectly solved puzzles.

Campfire Gallery: Fractal.
Artists: Francis Berry, Tyler Bewley, Robert Larson.
Comment by RWM: Solid. Profound. Inspired. Interesting Encounters with the abstract.
Comment by AB: People toss away their empty cigarette packs; Robert Larson rescues them and turns them into art. Francis Berry paints and collages recycled paper and painters tape. Tyler Bewley takes us on a calamitous high seas adventure.

Comment by AB: A select selection of artists donate works to this exceptional annual fundraiser, absolutely crammed with aficionados as always (you really have to think about increasing the size of the venue). Southern Exposure has done and continues to do great work for the San Francisco art community. They keep it fresh and they keep it coming-- ever innovative in their programming, from children to the military, from paintings to performance, you'll find it all here. One of the best annual art fundraisers in town. Make sure you're on their email announcement list for next year's.
