Love At First Sight
We’ve all been there. Whether it be the real thing, infatuation, or the cumulative effect of multiple alcoholic beverages. What matters is it has an effect on us. An effect so strong that Artist-Xchange has devoted their entire gallery to it and transformed the front showroom into a sanctuary of love. Haven’t gotten around to buying anything for your sweetheart? Do some shopping for that special someone while listening to the electronic beats of Ben Thompson. Don’t forget, Valentine’s day is Feb 14. And yes, it’s another one of those capitalist ‘Hallmark Holidays’ etc. But it’s also a chance to show the ones you love just how much you care. Fri., Feb 5. 7-10pm. Artist-Xchange Gallery. 3169 16th Street. 415.864.1490

All The Best
San Francisco artist Josh Ellington’s works will be at Mission Comics & Art starting Saturday February 6th. His work is best described in his own words: “I’m influenced by popular culture, particularly television and movies, and I’ve also always been a fan of comic books and collectible toys. I’m enamored with science and scientific advancements and lately, astronomy has had a big impact on my work. There’s something about the scale of the cosmic level that makes my brain buzz.” Reception on Sat., Feb. 6. 7pm. Mission Comics & Art. 3520 20th Street Suite B. 415.695.1545
