    Altman Siegel Gallery: O the sleeping bag contains the body but not the dreaming head. Curated by McIntyre Parker.

    Artists: Alice Channer, Aaron Flint Jamison, Anicka Yi.

    Comment by AB: One work a piece by two artists and two works by one artist-- that's the show. What does it all mean? Those who enter the gallery without adequate antecedents are doomed to cluelessness. Welcome to my world. Worth a visit nevertheless.

    Hedge Gallery: Morten LÝbner Espersen - Vertigo.

    Comment by AB: Handbuilt ceramics with sumptuous textural multicolor glazes by Danish ceramic artist, Morten LÝbner Espersen, beg to be caressed (but not here-- buy it first). His elaborate amoebic forms called "Horror Vacui" are particularly striking. Recommended viewing.

    McKinley Art Solutions at Hotel Triton: On & Off The Beaten Path - Linda Ruggieri.

    Review by RWM: Fascinating history and style comprised of transformed subjects. Nice use of color which adds dimension and depth. One can almost hear music playing. Great to visit with these images which remind of a lost but remembered time.

    Bay Area Photographers Collective at Calumet Photo Gallery: BAPC One Shot X2 Exhibiton.

    Photographers: I have no idea. Here's a thought-- list them on the invitation or on your website.

    Review by RWM: Wild fantastic show with something here for everybody. One is likely to find things that will surprise. Some shots of the natural, but also some photographs of the supernatural. Great show which will transgress and defy one's expectations.
