Rena Bransten Gallery: Lawrence Ferlinghetti - Love & War

Comment by AB: This is one of the best art events I've been to in a while. It's billed as an art book fair, but it's bigger than that. 85 exhibitors from around the country show their small press books, posters, prints, fashion, photographs, art, objects, vintage memorabilia, curios and oddities of all kinds. The fair lasts the weekend, but that's barely enough time to see everything. MORE!! Can't wait 'til the next one.

The Convent Arts Collective: Realms of the Autogenous Self
Artists: Saira Morse, Alex Vietti, Michael Magoski, Kristy Prince, Emily Heller, Katie Chin, Jen Fedrizzi, Leslie Mueller, Christopher Baldwin, Neeti Fidurko, Daniel Miramontes, Inga Loyev, Sandcastle Kid, Rose Hartley, Emiel Harmsen.
Comment by AB: I had no idea this place even existed, a former convent that's been transformed into an arts collective. It's home to some 24 artists and a venue for a variety of events including music, comedy, film & art shows, yoga, occasional art parties and more. Tonight we have a group show in the main hallway, meeting room and chapel.
