Art Show Openings on Polk

Three art shows open this week on Polk Street.

At Studio Gallery we have "Curious Travels" with paintings and scuplture by two of Studio's regular artists - Dave Higgins and Ayu Tomikawa. Opening today, Wednesday, Oct 17 through Nov 4. Opening reception Sat, Oct 20 4-8pm. 1718 Polk.
Jennifer, of Studio Gallery writes fanciful description of the show - this direct from website:

"Two of our most popular artists, Ayu Tomikawa & Dave Higgins, have teamed up for Curious Travels, which depicts the recent adventures of their well-loved characters. The show includes new sculptures and paintings from Dave, as well as Ayu's woodblock prints starring Hato, everyone's favorite space alien. Whether it's Hato traveling to the moon, or the Birdhouse Blend Birds zipping around in their new cars, you are sure to enjoy the trip. And the best part: there's even a bit of cross-pollinization, with Hato appearing in Dave's sculptures and Ayu using bird costumes in her prints."
