Mr Thomas Campbell, straight out of Santa Cruz, has an exhibition up at Half Gallery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan at the moment, and we wish we were there to see it. At least The Standard of the East Village has this video.

At Fecal Face Dot Gallery this Friday night… “West, Wester, Westest Part 2″

Our new neighbors, Fecal Face, have their first show at their new space in the Lower Haight, West, Wester, Westest Part 2, featuring curation by Ryan Travis Christian. The show will be Chicago-themed, well, almost Chicago-themed as one artist is from NYC (Ted Gahl, whose work is above) and one is from Oakland, Rogelio Gamez. But the rest are from the great city of Chicago.

Here is what Ryan Travis Christian had to say: “In the second iteration of West, Wester, Westest, I’ve once again chosen a selection of emerging and mid-career artists that A) don’t regularly exhibit in SF, if at all. and B) create work that “throws a wrench” so to speak, into what FFDG regularly shows. As a long time fan of Fecal Face, I’m honored to have such an immense platform to expose these artist to the world on. In terms of style and/or concept, these artists produce works that are very forward thinking and often experimental, throughout various mediums. The works exhibited, will run the gamut of content, from grossly disturbing to humorous, to bold and beautiful abstraction and then back again. Please join us @ FFDG’s new location in the Lower-Haight (248 Fillmore @Haight) on March 11th for the opening reception of West, Wester, Westest Part 2, I will be in attendance.” -Ryan Travis Christian

Very excited t0 have Fecal Face Dot Gallery on the block. Good shows and good art ahead.

Photos from the Christmas Day Bruce Bacca Church Soup Kitchen

Posted from The Citrus Report

Yesterday was Christmas, and in SF and the Bay Area, it was raining like we have never seen in years on a December 25. But that didn’t stop the Bruce Bacca Pop-Up Church from going off in the Lower Haight with their first annual (maybe not annual, but saying annual is more official) Christmas Day Soup Kitchen. A few staff members from the Citrus Report were there, and we snapped a few shots.

The Collaborative Murals of Ericailcane

Posted by FIFTY24SF Gallery

We prepped a few walls for Ericailcane last night in the Lower Haight. Before he begins to paint we thought we’d take a look at some of the collaborative work he’s done. With fellow contemporaries Blu, Sam3, San and Lucy Mclauchlan, Erica’s large-scale murals have played a key role in contributing to an increasingly progressive and elaborate street art and mural movement occurring in Europe over the past 5 years.
