This weekend you may find yourself in San Francisco, but it feels like a stay-cation. With a slue of day events and the weather gods predicting sunshine who would want to be anywhere else? You'll most definitely catch me sippin' on some tropical drinks this weekend.
Friday from 12:00 - 6:00pm The Midway SF presents Bold Expressions: by Boback Emand . This painter/ Sculpture uses bold shapes and contrasting colors and textures to communicate not only about the structures or the lines on the canvas but the voids as well. His works will fill the space at The Midway SF with an elegance and movement that can only be seen in person.
Later in the evening on Friday, a more graphic and literal artist, Lil' Tuffy presents a solo show at Everyday @ 936 Geary St. from 7:00 - 11:00pm. Lil' Tuffy is most known for his part in the gig poster documentary, Just Like Being There. Lil' Tuffy has established his career as an artist designing and producing limited edition "Gig Posters" and prints for musicians in all disciplines and even designed the Outside Lands poster for several years.
This Saturday two of the top art schools hold competing events featuring hundreds of artists, but there's no reason not to catch both. The CCA Spring Fair starts at 11:00amand runs till 3:00pm. The fair hosts students and alumni alike and is set up as a vendor fair rather than an exhibition. SFAI is opening up it's graduate studios which will be a preview to the student's thesis show at Vernirssage. Both Events are in the Dog Patch, so you can get your fill of emerging art this Saturday.
Saturday evening from 5:00 - 9:00pm Katheryn Barulich curates a group show called Spring Break at Residence/SF, this show will set off your indulgences with some visual eye-candy. The space is small but mighty and I'm sure the ideas that flow from this new, experimental space will flex your creative mussels. Heron Arts is also having a group show Saturday evening Perpetual Motion. This show presents works by 11 American and international artists with works that seems strait out of a fairy tale. Last but not least, I haven't heard of this space but the idea for the show captivated my attention The Galallery presents 2 x 2: Drawing + Diptychs. This group show will showcase pieces that have created Diptychs, two complimentary images viewed together, with two colors each. It seems like a experimental study so I'm keeping my mind open.
