Re: “This Exhibit on Environmental Degradation Is Just Sad

Understandably, one would like to be fed another utopian hope (to stir one's emotions) when confronting failed past utopian endeavors. But wouldn't that be missing the point? I agree that this work might invoke sadness, despondency, and pity. In my opinion, that allows one to begin the process of looking at our environmental/cultural/economic status from a responsible point of view, instead of swapping new utopian visions for the old ones.

It is also understandable, in a capitalist system, to expect art to distract, entertain, offer fantasy or escapism- but it takes courage and conviction from an artist to present the reality she sees, even if this causes discomfort. Congrats to Ms. Escott.

Re: “Cheap Wine, Free Cheese

I don't know if I can think of anything better than cheap wine and free cheese! Except for maybe some deluxe residential windows in vancouver. It would be pretty close though.

Re: “This Exhibit on Environmental Degradation Is Just Sad

It's so interesting how differently people can respond to the same art and the manner in which it is presented. If readers would like an alternative perspective, I thought I'd share this link to a write up about the show by Abigail Doan of The Wild Magazine:

Of course, I also hope people will come check out the work themselves this weekend before the show closes.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and respond to the show.

Re: “Art Walk This Way

Thank you Janis Norris for commenting on this link. CK Gallery is actually the only art gallery on the street, but a lot of other venues show art as well. In addition the street has a lot of wonderful restaurants and stores. At CK Gallery, we currently have a recycled art show called "Discardia" featuring about 25 bay area artists.

Re: “The Aesthetic Commons at Chandra Cerrito Contemporary

Hey DeWitt, thanks for the nice review! Do come visit Visual Aid Gallery, we'd love for you to see the show. One correction: Visual Aid Gallery is located on the top floor of the lovely Mechanics' Institute Building, 57 Post Street, San Francisco. The Mechanics' Institute does not have a gallery. Thanks, Julie Blankenship

Re: “Handymen at Vessel Gallery

Yes, fabulous work. Surprising, elegant and whimsical. Love the mixing of material textures in Gordon Glascow's work. Lonnie Lee always finds the most amazing work by new and talented artists!

Re: “Sobering Graphic

In the past several years a number of exhibitions of Palestinian art have had to seek new venues after similar pressure was applied by the self-appointed leaders of the Bay Area Jewish community but, long overdue, it seems the times are changing. Not only was MECA able to find a better place in which the public can view this moving exhibition of Palestinian children's art, but MOCHA's cancelling of the show at the behest of the JCRC and the Anti-Defamation League became not only a local story but one that quickly traveled world-wide thanks to the internet. I suspect Rabbi Kahn and those supporters of Israel in the Jewish community who think like him will have second thoughts before trying to flex their muscles so publicly again.

The notion that the subject of this art is too "heavy" for our children to see is a flimsy excuse, not only because, as the article points out, children are exposed to images of violence on their computers and cell phones, but that previous exhibitions of children's art from war zones have never been blocked for that reason. This is an exhibition that needs to be seen. The weapons that appear in the children's drawings were paid for by US taxpayers.

Re: “Sobering Graphic

These drawings are quite similar to the drawings of the children of El Salvador who were traumatized by the US backed military and death squads of the dictatorship. I remember seeing the drawings showing Salvadoran soldiers shooting, planes bombing etc. Unfortunately there was no internet back in the 1970s and 1980s so many of these drawings only remain in the memory of those of us who were active working against US policies in Central America.
