Happy Birthday, Anne!

IMG_1894.JPG

Today Anne starts her 57th revolution around the sun - and what a journey it has been.

Come and join Anne at FOG on Friday and Saturday for a weekend celebration. We have John Campbell’s fabulous plum pudding and bubbly libations, some tunes from me and Jeanie – and the entire gallery is full of her new exciting work.

Anne has had a tremendously productive year in her studio, and she is working on a new piece as I write this. She has been monumentally creative these past three years while opening and nurturing Far Out Gallery and its artists. She is working on a level I have never witnessed, and that covers 30 years of watching her art expand, explore, and EXPLODE. Come on by and help her celebrate.  -Peter

 

 

In Our Window

We're not open today, of course, because it's Wednesday! But if you happen to be in the neighborhood, peek in our window. You'll see a collection of potsherds Anne has gathered from the beach – and painted.

 

Ripple: Anne's Opening

A phenomenally fun and dazzling event!

Richard Kamler passed this morning, November 1, 2017.

Richard Kamler set the bar for the importance of art in our world. Insert yourself was his mantra to make a vital and positive difference. He was an art activist and was uncompromising in his desire for peace on earth. One of his art pieces was recording the lions at the San Francisco Zoo. He blasted their roar on the San Francisco Bay near San Quentin Penitentiary to protest the execution of a prisoner.

We will always hear Richard's ROAR. Peace Forever.

 

 

Upcoming

This is the last weekend to see Kasper Rodenborn’s exciting show - make sure you check out his “Fog” wall out back. And then, get ready for a special November.

Anne is showing many new works, including a 50 year revisiting of a favorite drawing of a horse she made as a 6 year old. Come help celebrate her fabulous show, Ripple. Jeanie and I will be performing the Fog family songbook on Sundays starting at 3 throughout November. We will be open on Thanksgiving to serve our wonderful community of art lovers.     -Cheers, Peter

Autumnal Equinox Celebration

"And the seasons they go round and round..."  Far Out Gallery loves to celebrate the various turnings of the sun's cycle, whether birthdays, anniversaries, or our quarterly seasonal demarcation. Come on over tomorrow and we'll celebrate our change from summer to fall (officially at 1:02). Who knows, maybe Anne Autumn (Herbst) will perform a pagan ritual to honor in our new season...

Friday, September 22nd, 4-6 pm

Sing along with Peter and Jeanie

to usher in a new season!

Refreshments.

 

Scenes from Guillermo Pulido's Opening

It was only a record-breaking 105 degrees in San Francisco yesterday for Guillermo's spirit-buoying opening. Even though Pulido's art filled the gallery with cool blues, we took little breaks and hit the alley out back for music and snacks. A joyous occasion!

Guillermo Pulido's Opening tomorrow 12-6 pm

Show runs Saturday, September 2 – Sunday, October 1, 2017

Pulido was born in Mexico and raised in San Francisco’s Mission district. He was active in the street art scene at a young age and studied at the San Francisco Art Institute where he gravitated to film, video and installation art. This exhibit explores time and place using photographs digitally enlarged—one mural-size—with Pulido’s poetic sensibility.
