Jim Houser will be opening a new solo show at Culver City’s LeBasse Projects, As Quiet As It’s Kept. It opens on March 10th. Which is a Saturday. Go check it out. “In Houserʼs new exhibition, ʻAs Quiet As Itʼs Keptʼ the artist returns to Los Angeles with an insightful array of works ranging from canvas paintings, mixed media compositions and installations. Here, Houser continues his perpetual examination of self-exploration and the meditative peace found in quietness compared to the joys of sound.”
One of our favorite neighborhoods in Oakland, CA, our hometown, is the Lakeshore/Grand area, and a new gallery, Warner Williams, has just opened featuring the largest collection of original art by the painter Warner Williams in the world, including early, mid-period and new work. And we like Warner Williams style, so we are going to make an appointment to go check it out. We like mundane, stylish California styles.
Last night at FIFTY24SF Gallery, we opened London artist INSA’s new solo show, “MORE.” There was a good crowd that came out, and they got to see the lit works, INSA’s new sculpture, and the GIF that INSA created specifically for the gallery.
“MORE” is open through February… come check it out.
A little sampling of what you are going to see tonight at FIFTY24SF and Noise Pop’s Pop-Up Store. PEZ will be showing Louder Than Bombs... come by and check it out at 248 Fillmore Street. . . . and remember, “crack is wack.”
We know its not our normal Thursday “let’s feature something Damon Albarn” day, but the new Gorillaz free EP, “The Fall,” is not so bad and something you should be committed to on this slow getting back to work Monday. Of course, we don’t know if it is free anymore, but it might be, and that is enough to click here and check it out.
We found these photos while perusing Telestar Logistics. Vintage cars in Potrero Hill to create a scene for 1949. We may have to run over later and check it out. More photos from Telestar Logistics here. And from the San Francisco Examiner:
The production is shooting this week at 23rd and Carolina streets, the Bay Bridge, and Filbert and Leavenworth streets. Filming wraps up Friday.
Even though Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” is rich with San Francisco scenes, most of the film was actually shot in Canada, where many productions opt to film to the detriment of San Francisco’s film industry. In recent years, The City has attempted to try and revive the industry with incentives.
But just the few days of shooting is seen as a positive. And a driving-away scene being shot this week in San Francisco is said to likely end up as the final scene in the film, which is set for release in 2011.
