immediate future is the show for the 2006 murphy and cadogan "fine arts" fellowships. chosen from recent graduates from the local art and other colleges.
i like ryan pierce.
the full painting has nice color balance and nice detail work.
(his technical virtuosity reminds me of this coro painting, which i saw later saturday)
brice bischoff put together a 49 polaroid portrait called "disappeared (new orleans skyline)"
it lights up in person. i like polaroid constructions.
the postcard piece is a video by bessma khalaf titled "this land is my land."
i put together a 5-picture slideshow to give you the idea of the video.
there is a bunch more work in the show. this is a great chance to see who some folks think are the pick of the current crop of recent graduates with bachelor of arts degrees.
the show runs until october 28, 2006.
sfac gallery is at 401 van ness at mcallister
(across van ness from city hall)
they are open weds-sat 12-5. "always free."
my set includes a few more photos.
