Art This Weekend

Posted By on Fri, Feb 11, 2011 at 6:12 PM

In the interests of making it really easy for everyone to go look at all the amazing art galleries San Francisco has, we'll be posting "Art This Weekend," a list of opening receptions happening on Friday evening, Saturday, or Sunday -- you know, when you're not working, and your friends aren't working, and your parents are here visiting, and you're trying to impress some sweet little ol' gal or fella. Hopefully we'll do it every week!

HILARY PECIS
  • Hilary Pecis

"(((Ω)))"and "Half Truths and Outright Lies"

New work by Ryan Wallace, inspired by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's "Omega Point." Paintings on canvas, panel, and paper are shimmery, philosophical, technological. New work by Hilary Pecis involves collaging naive Internet-culled images into grand mythological landscapes. Opening reception starts at 7 p.m. Saturday (and the show goes until March 5) at Guerrero Gallery, 2700 19th St. (at York).

"La Llorona Unfabled: Stories to (Re)Tell to Little Girls"

Group show with Ana Teresa Fernandez, Mónica Enriquez-Enriquez, Geraldine Lozano, Rosario Sotelo, and Tanya Vlach. The Wailing Woman inspires this group of Latina artists to consider how migrants see themselves, in a variety of media. The opening reception and artists' talk starts at 2 p.m. (and the show continues through April 16) at Galería de la Raza, 2857 24th St. (at Bryant).

DUSTIN KELLY
  • Dustin Kelly

"American Water"

New abstract paintings by Dustin Kelly. Shotgunned-beer paintings make fun of traditional muscular abstract painters of the past, whom the artist probably secretly worships, all in time for Beer Week. The opening reception starts at 6 p.m. Saturday (and the show continues through March 5) at Steven Wolf Fine Arts, 2747 19th St. (at York).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
