Cityscapes at Studio Gallery

I dropped by Studio Gallery at 1718A Polk Street for a peek at the City Streets show Jennifer and Rab are hanging for the Wednesday opening.

Here is Jennifer's announcement:

"Time to celebrate the places we call home, the cities of the Bay Area. This year's show is filled with terrific views of San Francisco and beyond, from close-up looks at favorite haunts to panoramic vistas that take in several cities and landmarks.

Work includes paintings by Brandon Smith, Scott Grabowski, Sookyi Lee, Dennis King, Brett Amory, Jeremy Mann, Jennifer Wasson, Nicholas Coley, Zannah Noe and Mike Dutton. Lola has a big mixed media resin piece in the show, Alice Gibbons and Toru Sugita are showing etchings, and Vivena's made lots of "I left my heart" necklaces, so you don't have to go home minus an organ.

And making sure that we have something for every budget, we have new pieces in four of our most popular series: Brian Behnke's "Fear of" phobia encaustics, Beth Ashcroft's North Beach prints, Niana Liu's map prints, and Proehl Studios' photos on canvas.

Finally, we're very happy to welcome Greg Gandy and Jumeen Kim, who are both showing their paintings in the gallery for the first time.

We hope you'll join us at the reception, see the work and meet some of the artists. Click here to see lots of advance photos from the show. "

The last show, Mischief was a huge hit. Art was flying out the door at the reception. Considering how we all love this city, City Streets should be even more successful.
