    Comment by AB: You might call this one a good old fashioned San Francisco warehouse art party and fond farewell to Flax art supplies Market Street location. Why are they leaving? To make way for more high-priced condos, of course. Meanwhile back at the show, the art runs the gamut, and then some, from deep urban to MFAs plus a very live soundtrack courtesy of Tommy Guerrero & band. The upshot? A fine time was had by all. If anyone wants to help credit the artists, drop me a line at alanbamberger@me.com.

    State: t.w. five - Across From Us

    Comment by AB: t.w.five (aka Pernilla Andersson and Paula Pereira) "paints" with colored vinyl tape. The star of the show is a large multi-panelled arcadian coastal scene that extends the length of two walls. Stop on by.
