After a long week of lifting, climbing, hauling, painting, and writing; ESPO aka Steve Powers presented his solo exhibition to San Francisco last Saturday. Here are a few flicks from the opening reception, which brought many shining new faces into the gallery. It was also good to see friends like Erik Otto, Akira, Mike Giant, C3, D Young V, Aaron Nagel, and Fanee here for support. Thanks to everyone who came out!
For those of you who missed it, come by before December 3rd to see new works by ESPO at White Walls.
In good tradition, D Young V spent the eve of his opening throwing up a collection of street characters on the block. San Francisco Youth Report brought an impressive crowd up the stairs to Gallery Three, and everyone was in good spirits. Thanks to everyone who came out in support of our beloved Tenderloin artist. Look on for more details from Saturday’s opening reception at Gallery Three: home to D Young V’s works on paper until October 3rd, 2009.

Everyone enjoyed themselves at the opening reception for Recognition last Saturday, especially when Blue came on the scene. (If you don’t recognize Blue, you might want to watch this video interview with the subjects of Hugh Leeman‘s paintings to put things in context.) We enjoyed Blue’s serenade of harmonica and singing, with his portrait hanging on the wall just feet away.
Watch this video for a piece of Blue’s signature tune, and continue on for snapshots from the opening of Recognition by Hugh Leeman and Michael Holman.

Thinking back on Saturday’s opening reception for AJ Fosik‘s “There’s Aliens in Our Midst,” one of our own staff says this:
“In my opinion, it was the best use of space I have ever seen at The Shooting Gallery and White Walls. The energy from both artists translates well in each gallery but they also compliment each other. There was a steady flow of collectors and genuinely interested people. It was a successful night, one of the best!” -Jillian Mackintosh, Publicist
