i picked up a postcard in my neighborhood for the mfa thesis exhibit of eliza stamps from pratt. her show is called holonomy and will be up from december 4th to the 8th. her work reminds me of the delicate style of a favorite artist of mine: lindsay adelman. i hope i have time next week to walk over and check it out.

i’m starting a list of art shows to see while in san francisco for the holidays:

printed matter at giant robot: a group show dedicated to prints, including woodcut, silk screen, lithography, relief, etching, and other techniques.

the ruth asawa retrospective at the de young (i’m also excited to see the quilts of gee’s bend exhibit again. i saw it a few years ago in new york, and it had a big impact on me).

alexander girard: vibrant modern, at the sf moma

i meant to post about this a few weeks weeks ago! cwc-i‘s new hanahou gallery, is debuting it’s first show: “hanahou presents – artistic gifts from gifted artists.” the show runs through december 28th, with original and limited art gifts ranging from paintings, to hand-made soap, to customized converse shoes. there are 38 participating artists, one of which is marcus oakley (a favorite illustrator of mine). shown above, from top down: marcus’s hand-made wooden case containing a CD of own music with the sunflower band, original “kuman gollo natural pillowcover” by akiyoshi chino, and mobile “deep sea dandy” by jessie hartland. if you can’t make it to the gallery, you can also shop online here.
