Christian Daniels Gallery: Yen-Ching Chang & Sung Eun Kim.
Review by RWM: Nice portraits and people painted here with freedom, style, admirable atmospherics, and subdued tones and colors. The works have abstract elements, but the people stand out. Pleasant though also somewhat poignant.
Also to be seen are the paintings of Sun Eun Kim who creates wonderful landscapes and city night scenes. These panoramas can be vast; the cityscapes are more intimate. Nice images of San Francisco captured. Beautiful Nature scenes as well.

Comment by AB: Huge annual fundraiser with both live and silent auctions benefits the UCSF AIDS Health Project. Tons of artists donate art resulting in all kinds of excellent opportunities to augment your collections. Get on the email list for next year's extravaganza. It's a seriously good party as well. Here's a small smattering of what you missed...

Romer Young Gallery: Jonathan Runcio - Glass in the Garden.
Comment by AB: Quality work on all counts even though the envelope is not pushed. But there's much to be said for the conventions of current modernity, in particular when admirably crafted. My fave is the lone bulb pole lamp, the pole firmly set into a rugged hunk of cast concrete and standing impeccably upright. It's got a dimmer on it too. Better than anything you're gonna find in any Design Center showroom for sure.

Park Life: Down Below the Feet. Curated by Rich Jacobs and Jordan Isip.
Artists: Melinda Beck, Linnea Gad, Jordin Isip, Rich Jacobs, Chris Johanson, Hannah Lee, Matt Leines, Ashley Snow Macomber, Alicia McCarthy, Jason Polan, Simone Shubuck, Billy Sprague.
Comment by AB: Yet another one of those group shows where the upshot makes sense only to the curators. That said, there's merit to be sure. You just have to hunt and peck the profusion for the good stuff.
