High anxiety.

Two stressful things going on right now - a still unsold condo and a very sick cat. Sigh.

Art recommendation - San Francisco.

If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, you'll want to check out a show opening this weekend at Studio Gallery in San Francisco. Two friends of mine (and superb artists) Sadie Valeri and Chris Leib are showing work as part of a group figurative show on exhibit from May 13 - June 7. The opening reception is this coming Sunday, May 17, from 2-6pm - the gallery is located at 1815 Polk Street in SF, between Washington and Jackson Streets. Go check it out!

Below are pieces that Sadie and Chris will have in the show:

Winged Victory by Sadie Valeri - chalk and charcoal on toned paper, 19"x25".

Kitsch Baby by Chris Leib – pencil on paper, 10"x12".

Studio Gallery is a great place, focusing on San Francisco Bay Area-based artists. I used to show there myself back when we still lived in the Bay Area. The owners are great people, and well worth supporting by stopping by (and maybe picking up some local art!)
