Second Saturday Art Hike

Yes, I know you'll be tired from your big hike, but just hurry home and consider this a way to stretch out your muscles as well as your imagination! I'll lead you to some of my favorite midtown art hang-outs; many have snacks, music and wine. Expect crowds, especially later in the evening at the galleries near J. Okay to bring older kids, but sometimes the art content is on the wild side, and so is the crowd on the street!

This is about a 4 mile loop, not counting the walks through the galleries themselves.

We will leave the trailhead at 6:10pm sharp, because most venues close at 10, and it takes time to see the art in addition to getting to it.

Look under Files (in "More" tab above) for a map to enlarge and print. I may change it before the meetup, so try to do this close to the date. Click on the map to enlarge and print it out to bring, in addition to a small flashlight to read it with, some cash for a late dinner or snack, comfortable walking shoes and an adventurous spirit.

The times I've suggested on the map are loose. It is easy to lose people in the crowds, and we all like to view art at our own pace, so plan to walk with a couple other people and keep track of them at each venue, (meeting outside before moving on helps, and exchanging cell phone numbers is a good idea) but we won't be trying to keep our entire group together. If you get separated, use the map to get to the next venue or to skip one and try to meet at the following. I hope to grab a late dinner at Ma Jong's and talk about the art before heading back to the cars.

    Good but so much art to see - maybe start earlier? Not many people showed up but it was a bit chilly until you started moving.

    SECOND SATURDAY STUDIO OBSERVATIONS

    Plots of land
    curve as if
    in the patchwork of
    the lights from
    table lamps and dive bar lights
    as if
    these
    are the
    places to hit
    the cue ball
    The windows of light on the cue balls
    are akin to the parcels of the land
    that you have eaten and grown from
    and into the figure with the brain and the vision
    that you have now Inverse explosions of
    smokestacks from London
    seen on the Yellow Submarine
    form trees that arise The gestural marks of clouds above craters
    are elegant sky calligraphy --
    I wish I could read cloud
    so I could decipher what these two clouds are saying
    The sparseness of this picture
    and the dominance of the negative space
    is its strength

    SECOND SATURDAY OBSERVATIONS Pointilistic spray painted clouds of pollution Flying yoga of a dalmation
    with intutively basic circles and curves of motion
    splashes paint as we look upward
    into the volcanic sun
    while another dog goes Downward
    against a volcanic splash of prism

    Eyes come out of
    a calendar of an Eadward Muybridge
    game plan of a fence
    built by piano keys
    whose notes
    pulsate and blush
    the pollution of the mind

    I've just posted a new map for everyone to print for December, under MORE / FILES above. But I may be late, so if I don't arrive by 6:10, just head on out and have fun!

    Yikes! Is it that time already?? I'll get a new map posted Friday evening. Driving from the Bay Area so hope to make it on time! If I'm not, follow the map and have fun!
