Contemporary Jewish Museum: Arnold Newman - Masterclass; In That Case, Havruta in Contemporary Art - Lindsey White and Ron Lynch.
Comment by AB: In the main gallery is an awesome retrospective of 200 vintage photographs by Arnold Newman (1918-2006), mainly portraits of famous people, and of those, mainly artists and other creative greats. Sitters include Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Max Ernst, Igor Stravinsky, Martha Graham, Grandma Moses, Jean Arp, Isamu Noguchi and many more in a show that just keeps on going. Highly recommended.
Downstairs is a show themed around the tradition where pairs of people study religious texts.

Five Senses Projects: The "Electric Paintings" of Clive McCarthy.
Comment by AB: Clive McCarthy's art looks like representational paintings, but it's actually digital works on monitors that continually materialize and de-materialize right before your eyes, essentially painting and un-painting themselves, and doing so in perpetuity. A computer programmer by trade, he tells me no image is ever duplicated and none exist in real life. Not your same old art show.

ChatterBox Arts at Shotwell 50 Studio: The 2014 San Francisco Altered Barbie Exhibition.
Artists: About 50.
Comment by AB: One of the wackiest wiggiest San Francisco art events of the year, the annual Altered Barbie Exhibition is where artists slice, dice, rework, revamp, transform, mutate, doctor, recycle, reprocess, regenerate, reincarnate and reconfigure the iconic American fashion doll in pretty much every way imaginable. No limits here.

The Dryansky Gallery: Grand Opening - American Dreams by Geoffrey Dryan.
Review by RWM: Down to earth depictions of The American Dream for some. They are not so grandiose here and one might find these dreams not fully rewarding. Great images of our significant others, but there is also scenery, cars and houses instead of riches. Some objects seem well worn, not that fantastic, but fulfilling in other ways. Wonderful show and great encounters for those who seek value.
