ArtSpan: San Francisco Open Studios.
Review and images by DeWitt Cheng: Open Studios, now in its thirty-fourth year, offers art mavens a chance to meet artists in their native habitats-- always fun. I miss the first two weekends this year, but manage to visit a few places during Weekend Three (Third Street corridor, SOMA) and Weekend Four (Hunter's Point).
Weekend 3, October 24-25:
Ed Calhoun and vegetable-oil pool at American Industrial Center.
Larry Robinson of Oakdale Studio.
Oakdale Studio painting bins. Abstraction by Hilla Hueber; portrait by John Melvin.
View near Islais Creek Studios.
Weekend 4, October 31 - November 1:
Robert Geshilder and computer-designed inkjet-fabricated sculpture.
MB Wada of nonprofit ArtSeed.
Richard Cheng of ArtSeed (no relation).
Can't remember name... sorry.
Donald Jay Trachtenberg.
Romantic ruins (going, going...).
