    State Gallery: Material Limit - Alexis Arnold and Mary Button Durell

    Comment by AB: Yet another new San Francisco gallery-- State-- opens in the former Eleanor Harwood space on 25th and Alabama. For their inaugural show, we have crystallized literature and mesh screen sculptures, some embellished with borax crystals, others interred in resin. In the rear gallery, Mary Button Durell shows a selection of her paper and wheat paste sculptures.

    Bass & Reiner: Ivan Iannoli

    Comment by AB: Small-format works range from representational to abstract, mainly mixed-media, sometimes photographic, other times with space in between layers.

    Minnesota Street Project: I Never Learned the Title of the Song I Always Sing

    Artists: Beth Abrahamson, Miguel Arzabe, Brittany Atkinson, Binta Ayofemi, Rachelle Bussières, James Chronister, Arash Fayez, Tom Loughlin, Chris Lux, Phillip Maisel, Sean McFarland, Masako Miyazaki and Chris Sollars. Curated by Brion Nuda Rosch.

    Comment by AB: Group video exhibition presented like a painting show, with all videos playing simultaneously (and one neon piece). Curator Rosch adds a sculptural element to the installation by placing the projectors around the room on the floor, cordoned off from one another with plain white partitions and circuitously connected to the wall sockets. My favorites are Chris Sollars' reel of urban sidewalk sculptures and a roving rainbow eclipse video (sorry, need name of artist). Worth a visit.
