    Dolby Chadwick Gallery: Edwige Fouvry - ‘ temps, suspends ton vol!

    Comment by AB: Like elusive dreams and reveries, figures and landscapes materialize out of the mist, enigmatic narratives and private inner lives. You can wonder all you want, but you'll never really know. Stop on by.

    Hackett Mill Gallery: As I Am - Painting the Figure in Post-War San Francisco. Curated by Francis Mill and Michael Hackett.

    Artists: David Park, Elmer Bischoff, Richard Diebenkorn, Joan Brown, William Theophilus Brown, Frank Lobdell, Manuel Neri, Nathan Oliveira, James Weeks and Paul Wonner.

    Comment by AB: Some pretty cherry examples of Bay Area Figure Painting include a couple of stunners by Joan Brown, a rare surviving figurative Elmer Bischoff (much of his work was destroyed in the Oakland hills fire of 1991) and a Nathan Oliveira portrait from 1958, not to mention a healthy selection of examples by David Park and Richard Diebenkorn among others. Definitely worth a visit.

    Gregory Lind Gallery: Tom Burckhardt - City Slang.

    Comment by AB: Intense vibrant abstracts by New York artist Tom Burckhardt are dense in composition and uneven along the edges suggesting the oblique intricacies of big city life, as the show's title might suggest.

    Caldwell Snyder Gallery: Entre SilÍncios - Marta Penter.

    Comment by AB: Waiting, watching, in transit, sitting, and similar conditions of quietude. You never really see whose doing all these things or what their facial expressions might imply. That part you have to figure out for yourself.

    Hashimoto Contemporary: Gregory Euclide - Extract.

    Comment by AB: Fabulous fantasy foresty landscapes in all shapes, sizes, dimensions and adventures. So much to see and do in these lush woodsy wonderlands once you let yourself in. The shadowboxed ones are the best. In fact, I like the show so much, I hereby proclaim the whole shootin' match to be Pick of the Night. Definitely worth seeing.
