San Francisco Art Institute: SFAQ - San Francisco Arts Quarterly Premier Issue Release and Symposium.
Comment by AB: San Francisco Arts Quartly magazine, brought to us c/o Gregory Ito and Andrew McClintock, is a free publication dedicated to Ess Eff's exuberantly abounding artistic community. This first issue focuses on art in The Tenderloin with loads of listings, venue information and features, among which is an interview with that eminently obsessive compulsive artster, Alan Bamberger (aka moi), including a full-page pin-up-- perfect for your boudoirs-- of me holding my rubberband balls. Erk.

Comment by AB: ArtSpan's annual benefit art show and auction is overwhelmingly well attended this year and as for the fundraising bottom line, they tell me it's comparably copious.

Too much champagne for the teddybear art.

Four Barrel Coffee: Serena Mitnik-Miller.
Review by RWM, image c/o Four Barrel Coffee: Beautiful water colors. Trianges meet triangles. Paintings within paintings in vivid colors. All sorts of moods captured here in the melancholy water wash.
