A selection of my favorites from February openings in the Bay Area:

Joyce Gordon Gallery • Heirloom by Bryan Keith Thomas

Small cloth bags hang from the paintings and represent the physical and spiritual remains of African and African American ancestors.

Bass & Reiner Gallery • Powers of Ten

3265 17th St, Suite 402 SF, CA 94110

I esp. loved Emily Russell’s sculptures – concrete with baroque architectural models on the inside painted in gold acrylic.  They were fun to pick up and look through.
