Andrea Schwartz Gallery: Philip Buller - Every One.
Review by RWM: The summer beach crowds are gone for the year. Nice to remember the crowded beaches of yore. Even though it is fun to be alone at the beach it also is sad to see the crowds gone. You can gather right along with them in these crowded pieces. If you look closely you will see some regulars from picture to picture. You can go searching for them. Nice to go back to days of youth with remembrance of the cooling waters and lunch treats. There was the ice cream, rides, and relief from the hot sand. In these images there is a communal sense. The nice pastel colors keep your eyes running all over the canvases. The reds are liberating. Viewers can join in here.
Comment by AB: All paintings in the show are detail views of a single painting titled Beach Crowd. Good art; worth a visit.

ArtSpan at SOMArts Gallery: ArtLaunch 2012 Preview Party.
Artists: Over 900.
Comment by AB: San Francisco Open Studios not only a great opportunity to buy art, but it's also a perfect reason to explore all parts of The City by way of their artists' studios. So you have a reason to roam unfamiliar territories, a list of places to go, artists to meet, studios to see (always enjoyable for their creative uniqueness), refreshments to consume, and last but certainly not least, art to buy.
Tonight's Preview gala at SomARTS marks the official start of the annual Open Studios season which runs the entire month of October (and this year, also the first week of November). On display are hundreds of works by many of this year's nearly 900 participating artists. This show also lasts the entire month and provides an excellent overview of the range of art available for sale. For those of you who like making your studio visit plans in advance, go to the SomARTS show, pick out your favorite art, and either contact the artists directly or visit their studios on their respective weekends. You can also get yourself a free copy of the ArtSpan Open Studios Guide here.
