Art & Development

mid-january: art season in the mission

With the slow economy, I suspected that gallery owners would hibernate a little longer than usual, but it turns out Mission District galleries are ready to go. A string of openings this afternoon and tonight should be a good way to while away a Saturday in the City. (Sadly, my Canon Powershot is out of commission, so no pics tonight.)
