Gallery Paule Anglim: Pamela Wilson Ryckman - Berlin Stories; Tomas Nakada - Diaspora.
Comment by AB: Elemental renderings of buildings by Berlin architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841) are excised from their settings and immersed in fields of colorful abstract shapes. A pure and idyllic way of contemplating architecture. Tomas Nakada's dynamic dot patterns, on view in the rear gallery, are based on microscopic images of cells. They're just as good up close as they are at a distance. Good show on both counts.

Italian Cultural Institute: Fifty Shades of Gold - Max Papeschi.
Review by RWM: Fun and irreverent. Many targets. Interesting humor. Public iconoclast-ism which makes us see things differently than expected or predicted. The point is to not take it so seriously, but rather a reason to laugh.
Comment by AB: A totally tasteless and offensive show not even worth taking the time to dissect. But before you get too miffed, remember Je Suis Charlie.

Review by RWM: Interesting modern takes on traditional weaving. The works take on the stature of sculpture in this exhibition space. Fun and welcoming show with beautiful use of color and creative use of materials, sometimes new materials.

SFAQ[Project]Space: Preview Party.
Comment by AB: Yet another new art space in town, two doors down from Ever Gold Gallery and under the same management. Tonight's first look at this yet-to-be-developed venue is also a release party for Issue 19 of SFAQ International Arts and Culture, beautifully displayed in piles on the floor. Also on the docket is a low-light display of art by Amy Franceschini, and a vat of melted chocolate along with celery sticks and pretzels in the back room.
The basic idea - SFAQ[Project]Space preview party.
The guest of honor - SFAQ Issue 19 at SFAQ[Project]Space.
