California College of the Arts will open its MFA exhibition with a reception on Thursday, May 11th, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The show runs through Saturday, May 20th. I got a preview by attending an open studio event recently, so I know there will be some good work on view. The address is 1111 8th St. at the base of Potrero Hill, San Francisco.
On a completely different scale will be Colter Jacobsen’s solo show, “Your Future,” in The Attic at Four Star Video. The opening is Thursday, May 11th, at 8:00 pm, with music at 9:00 pm. The show will have a long run, through July 31st. Jacobsen is a good artist whose under-the-radar mode of operating has engendered a cult following. He stepped out a bit last year when he did a project at White Columns in New York and was noticed by Roberta Smith of the New York Times. The address of this art space is 1521 Eighteenth St., at Connecticut St., San Francisco. The hours couldn’t be more convenient: Noon to 10:00 pm daily!
ONSIX Gallery will be opening a large group show on Friday, May 12th, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The show, curated by Jason McAfee, includes familiar names such as Chris Duncan, Keegan McHargue, and Albert Reyes. It could be interesting. The address is 60 Sixth St., between Market St. and Mission St., San Francisco (a rough neighborhood).
