An Evocative, Visually Ravishing Trilogy
By Maureen Hanratty (Feb 24, 2005)
Jeremy Blake conjures up the ghosts of the Winchester Mystery House in his evocative, visually ravishing trilogy 'Winchester'. Presented as a triptych and screened simultaneously 'Winchester, 2002', '1906', 2003 and 'Century 21', 2004, explore the paranoia and madness that drove the Winchester rifle heiress Sarah Winchester to build a sprawling mansion in San Jose to pacify the spirits of those killed by her family's famous firearms. More
Feb 11th to Feb 24th
By melissa lane (Feb 11, 2005)
February hurts. A grayish, coldish wetness stretches interminably ahead, the groundhog saw its shadow and Valentine's is on a Monday. The next two weeks reign in a carnival of creep, cynicism and cheap thrills that could make the sassiest Tenderloin tranny cringe: a new little black dress made of trash bags; humans living in cages for a week (protests are already in the planning); and Ronald McDonald holding two topless girls by a fistful of their hair. So don't get fruity on the 14th -- like my duplicitous friend Claudia likes to say: celebrate V.D. and spread the love. More
Jan 28th - Feb 10th
By melissa lane (Jan 28, 2005)
Art SF throws down in their usual creative extravagance to stick it to the Jesus-freaks and office-holding knuckle-draggers. Buckey Sinister hosts "Fuck Your Freedom" on Jan 28th to celebrate civil liberties, Satan and the new CD by Reverend Steven Johnson Leyba and United Satanic Apache Front. Winston Smith and the Church of Satan will join the good reverend in showing off their art wares whilst Lady Hades performs and many a spoken word artist ignite the theme of uncivil disobedience. Entrance is $5-$10 unless you're such a proud Christian that you must identify as such to the doorman then it's $23, sucker. More

A Playground in the Haight
By Jialin Luh (Dec 31, 2004)
What do Alice in Wonderland, The Beatles, and an urban fashion/art outfit have in common? Try a walrus. That's right, if you're keen to your surroundings you may have caught the easily recognizable walrus silhouette slapped on many a wall and street sign. According to an unnamed source, the significance of the walrus is its representation of not a single individual, but a faceless collective of people, which embodies Upper Playground's operation. More
A New Space for Bay Area Art
By Maureen Hanratty (Dec 2, 2004)
Fecal face dot com sounds like a poo fetish site, but for those in the know its the best place online to see new Bay Area art. Photographer, web designer, aspiring filmmaker John Trippe started the site in 2000 and has since gained a loyal following on the web and some really talented artist friends. A gallery space was the next logical step and on November 20th Low Gallery opened its first group show in a small storefront in the Mission. More
A Little Something for Everyone
By SFS Staff (Nov 26, 2004)

This season's offering is the Stillwell Student Show, a selection of 60 undergraduate art student works chosen through a jury process by the Exhibition Design students. The work of nine graduate students as well as a display of personal effects of the show's namesake, Leo Stillwel More
Emerging artists: North of King City to South of the Oregon border
By Maureen Hanratty (Nov 18, 2004)
Southern Exposure's 14th Annual Juried Exhibition Epic hardly seems epic when you enter the gallery's cavernous first floor. Out of 633 submissions only twenty-six artists were selected for this year's show, each represented by one piece of art all well below the 6 x 6 x 8 ft dimension limit. More
San Francisco artists findinspiration during wartime
By amy gelbach (Nov 16, 2004)
As the epicenter of homeland dissent, and one of the most rapidly reactive art scenes in the states, it is no surprise that San Francisco has been host
to several highly politicized art events of late. The large number of shows devoted to the "war cause" is impressive. However, it is more than just the
breadth of exhibits that is capturing the public's attention. The quality and depth of thought displayed by so many of the artists is what is really setting the Bay Area art scene apart right now. .. More
Profile of a local artist
By SFS Staff (Nov 16, 2004)
Kimberly Austin is one of San Francisco's undiscovered treasures. Although her art resides in important international public and private collections - including Germany's Gelsenkirchen Museum, the Levinthal collection, Deloitte &
Touche, and that of Jane's Addiction founder Perry Farrell - and she shows regularly at San Francisco's Braunstein Quay Gallery and Cologne's Galerie Sieppel, the 38-year-old Austin remains relatively unknown. What makes her lack
of large-scale recognition all the more puzzling is that her photography-based work is among the most ethereally beautiful... More
