First the eviction notices came for the galleries at 77 and 49 Geary, then Root Division was priced out of their Mission space, followed by layoffs at Intersection for the Arts, and FLAX's eviction. Now, another blow comes to the San Francisco art community -- after 13 years, the Potrero Hill art store ARCH has received an eviction notice, says KQED.

According to the the article, the building will undergo extensive renovations, which will displace the art store and studio spaces. One artist displaced in this eviction is none other than Wendy MacNaughton, whose Meanwhile in San Francisco: The City in its Own Words captures the authentic side of San Francisco residents. The store is hoping to stay in business at another location and serve the needs of the S.F. art community, which, unfortunately, appears to be dwindling by the day.

  • 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.'"
