Ashley Voss, one of several new gallery owners in the Mission, opened her first exhibition of the year on Friday night at Voss Gallery at the corner of 24th and Bartlett streets. Some two dozen artists showed pieces in which color dominated work that ran the gamut from conceptual to hyperrealism.
The exhibition is on view through February 1, 2020. Voss Gallery at 3344 24th St. (at the corner of Bartlett Street) is open Wednesday-Saturday, 12 to 6 p.m. or by appointment.
And for those interested in seeing loads of art at one time, there will be plenty of opportunities at the art fairs opening this week. Charles Desmarais at the SF Chronicle gives you a good guide.
And if you’re interested in the long and ongoing saga of a monument to commemorate Maya Angelou, Caille Millner at the SF Chronicle has an excellent column here.
And finally, some photos from the Voss Gallery show and a short interview with Mike Sanchez on Salty.
Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.
As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.
Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
