Comment by AB: ArtSpan's major annual art auction fundraiser features over 100 works of art up for bids at both live and silent auctions. Money raised goes to support ArtSpan's year-round educational programs for working artists, under-served youth, and anyone else with an interest in either learning about or buying art, especially art by San Francisco artists. The hundreds of art lovers attending this year's event are treated to as good a selection of art as I've ever seen. ArtSpan just keeps getting better. Don't miss next year's auction; get on their email announcement list now.

Asterisk Gallery: Emergent 3d Visions - Tech Shop Artist Residency.
Artists: Jon Kuzmich, Jonathan Barcan, Luca Nino Antonucci.
Comment by AB: Three artists exhibit the results of their recent three-month residencies with Tech Shop SF, a creative community offering premium fabrication and prototyping studios, and access to new technologies that can be applied to print, art and installations. My personal fave is "BLACK/WHITE" by Jon Kuzmich, a set of five painted layered hardboard letter sculptures that spell the word BLACK when you look at the black side, and WHITE when you look at the white side.
