Divisadero Art Walk Happens Thursday Evening

Think of it as "Second Thursday." It's an art crawl, like First Thursday, but one that's in a smaller area and (maybe) not quite as mobbed. And rather than monthly, it's (roughly) quarterly. It's the Divisadero Art Walk, which takes place along Divisadero from Haight to Turk. The event's blog lists 16 participating galleries, bars, salons, and cafes, including the Madrone Art Bar, Cafe Abir, Big Umbrella Studios, and Medusalon.

[Fair warning: A couple of NSFW images await in the rest of this post.]

Medusalon will display the photographs of a team calling itself DeCenzo-Cordova. Angela DeCenzo's artist statement says she "was born to hippie parents and spent her childhood living in Volkswagen buses as her family wandered exploring America's rich landscape." Norma Cordova, meanwhile, grew up in apple orchards of Oregon (we're guessing maybe it was near the legendary Oregon Country Fair) taking photos with a point-and-shoot camera that belonged to her parents.

The statement goes on to describe the work on display:

"[It] is inspired by the pictorialist movement, sexy shoes, and true love. A series that explores beauty in the female form, it reflects emotions of beauty, grace, reality, isolation, and fantasy."

Their statement also includes something about ice cream on cold nights and botanical theft, but we'll let that be part of the surprise when you visit.

Other artists whose work is displayed on the walk include Sheri DeBow, Erin Sherbert (editor of our sister blog, The Snitch), Anthony Ryan, Gavin Worth, and James L. Tucker. Candybar displays works of Tiffany Star, Jeffrey Nemenzo, and Eddie Cola. Big Umbrella Studio's show is "Cobalt: Names from a 6 Year Old," which it describes as "live painting, games, and snacks from your childhood past."

Devon McClive's band plays at BlueJay Cafe, while Kitten on the Keys plays piano at Madrone Art Bar.

The Divisadero Art Walk starts at 5 p.m. (and various events begin between 5:30 and 7 p.m.). Visit the blog for more information.

  • 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.'"
