    Sagan Piechota Architecture: Lisa Bostwick - Paintings, 1999-2011.

    Review by RWM: Fascinating works. Are they figurative? They certainly are involving. The colorful circles spiral with motion. Watch out for punches going astray. Mostly nice folks have gathered.

    San Francisco Arts Commission, 155 Grove Street Gallery: Ernest Jolly - Natural Reaction.

    Review by RWM: Swimming and dancing by the shore. Are these mermaids or sirens? Water is welcome as muse.

    Comment by AB: I miss the performance by just a few minutes, but at least I've got the aftermath...
