As art enthusiasts it is important to see contemporary art in the galleries. The gallery tour has many outstanding artists. Of note of our bi-monthly meetup are:
Group Exhibit at Nichols Gallery,
Poetics of Construction at Haines Gallery,
Alfredo de Stefano at Koch Gallery,
Unphotographable at Fraenkel Gallery,
and many other photography, painting and mixed media exhibits that art enthusiasts will enjoy, ponder and be influenced in a positive way. Please join us.
“First Thursday” is when a number of SF galleries stay open later for the public 5:30-7:30, the first thursday of the month. 49 Geary St. is where well-known contemporary art galleries like Fraenkel, Haines, Koch, Wiriz, and more are located. Unlike the museums, art in the galleries is generally edgier, sometimes controversial, maddening, etc. but hardly mundane. Guaranteed to start spirited discussions. We'll start gathering in front of the building at 5:30 and be ready to go up the elevators by 5:40. 2 hrs. is a long time for viewing, 90 min is more realistic; will start our social at a pizzeria at 7:10. We'll be joined by a a few members of photography meetup group that should bring another perspective of the exhibits.
