Here are a couple of San Francisco art events of interest for Saturday, March 4th:
Downtown at Hosfelt, there is a new show by Marco Maggi. The artist has demonstrated a fascination with paper, especially white paper. He has stacked it, scattered it, and cut shapes into it, folding some of the shapes forward. This can seem like a formalist mode of play, but the artist's statements indicate that he is interested in signs, codes, degrees of visibility, and identity. There will be a reception from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. The address is 430 Clementina St. (between 5th and 6th Sts., and Howard and Folsom Sts.). The gallery website does not have updated information on this show.
In the Mission District, Jack Hanley is showing the Reeder brothers, Scott and Tyson, who hail from Milwaukee. Both have been getting attention in New York for their art and for curatorial gigs. The show is guaranteed to be colorful. There is a reception from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The addresses are 389 and 395 Valencia St., near 15th St. The gallery website does not have updated information on this show.
