Friday's Openings

Below are openings I am definitely going to catch tomorrow night.

I also hear there is a evening to morning opening party for Pete Doolittle's installations somewhere in SOMA. I'll keep you abreast on details as I figure it out.

Artist: Adam Flores
Gallery: Gallery 3
Opening Reception: Friday April 18, 2008 from 7 to 10 p.m.
Exhibit Dates: April 18 - May 20, 2008
Address: 66 6th Street

Adam was in a group show at Shooting Gallery, parent gallery to Gallery 3, this past fall. I like his use of color and fairy tale/ medieval scenes.

Artist: Karin Smith
Gallery: Mission 17
Opening Reception: Friday, April 18, 2008 from 6-9 p.m.
Exhibit Dates: April 18 - May 23, 2008
Address: 2111 Mission Street, Suite 401

"A garden is a sign of purpose and a sense of place--no one plants one with the intention of leaving it. With this insight as her point of departure, Smith reconsiders the image of the People's Temple as a death cult, whose members were merely helpless victims of the church's leader. Instead she presents this predominantly African American institution as a product of longstanding racial inequalities in the United States, which worked to redress the legacy and persistent trauma of slavery."(from their site)
