A recent view from the Marin Headlands.

And tomorrow, don’t miss:

Saturday, June 14, 2008, 4:00 PM
Rodney Ewing: Public Safety Artist’s Talk
Frey Norris Gallery, 456 Geary St, San Francisco

On Saturday, June 14th at 4:00 in the afternoon, Ewing will offer a slide presentation and gallery talk that will examine popular media discourse on issues around public safety (and the anxieties that fuel them and attempts to mitigate them) and how these intersect with his artwork and studio practice. This event is free and open to the general public.

Currently at Frey Norris Gallery: Rodney Ewing’s first exhibition with the gallery, Public Safety, is comprised of three thematic series that are displayed throughout our space: Disarm, Countermeasures and Meditations. Public Safety examines devices and methods ostensibly designed to protect citizens. Ewing re-structures them as tools that might provide an alternative kind of security, tools that subvert the original intentions of the represented objects’ creators. The redesigning of these instruments and re-application of these techniques appear as cable-hung and wall mounted images, light boxes and installations.

Saturday, June 14, 7-9 pm
Opening: Richard T. Walker
Iceberger Gallery, 3150 18th St. @ Treat, San Francisco

Iceberger is proud to present Sometimes I like you more than othertimes. a solo show by Richard T. Walker. Walker utilizes spoken dialogue, text and original music compositions to generate video and photographic works that explore complex relationships between language, the environment and the human condition.

Ongoing / May 22 – June 29, 2008
Exhibition: You Make Me Make You, Suzanne Husky
Triple Base Gallery, 3041 24th St, San Francisco

For her ambitious installation at Triple Base, Suzanne Husky has crafted a series of soft sculptures that include Chinese factory workers, Mexican laborers, “counter-mainstream hipsters”, and a series of inventive Berkeley “eco-heroes.” The work depicts extreme labor, oppression, community, superficiality, unmindful expending of resources, and white guilt. This show is sure to entertain if you like stories, using your imagination, and thinking critically about the world we live in today.

The Dinner Lecture Series event will take place on Friday, June 27th and features special guests Amy Franceschini and Michael Swaine of Futurefarmers.
