For this week's Arting Mondays... Wait, it's Wednesday evening and you don't even do this on a regular basis?!... Anyway, for this edition of our weekly feature, where we venture away from the office to see what sorts of artistic places and things we can get ourselves into, we thought that, since it's the beginning of the art season, we'd visit a few galleries for previews of the shows they're about to open. Andrew Schoultz, 111 Minna for Serena Cole & Tahiti Pehrson, Fifty24SF for Catalyst, and Receiver for Hilary Pecis.
But first, Jay Howell and I visited our friend Rick Marr who now works over at the fetish website Kink.com located in the massive historic Amory Building in the Mission... The bummer is that no photos are allowed inside which sucks 'cause there's some crazy stuff to be shown- rooms filled with whips, belts, leathers masks, fucking machines, chains, bondage equipment, etc... basically 4 stories filled with dungeon styled sets wired with high powered lights. It wasn't a sticky nasty porn set which you'd imagine but each room had the feel of a big budget hollywood film stage. Hopefully Rick will be able to blog it up someday soon.
The castle where the Nightowlcoholic resides.
One of the few areas where photography was allowed.
Up to the roof... photgraphy allowed.
Nice photo, Mr. Jay Howell.
Mr. Rick Marr... A king in his castle.
You can climb up on the dome (we think) but opted not to. How safe is that roof? That would be one hell of a fall.
Right down the street from Jack Hanley, we stopped in to see their current group show.

The show is great... Check out this SF Chronical article and video.
A quick stop for sustenance at Love N Haight... Man, I do love thier sandwiches.
At Fifty24SF to see some of their group show "Catalyst" opening Thursday featuring works from Josh Graham, Aaron Turner, Seldon Hunt, Aaron Horkey, Justin Bartlett, Stephen Kasner, Dwid Hellion, & Florian Bertmer.

There wasn't much work out as they were still working on the show... Metal album art.
The gallery isn't that small... That guy is just really large.
Stopped through Needles and Pens to wrap things up with beer.

What I'd look like if I shopped and bought clothes from N&P while blindfolded.
Casenova for more beverages.
No don't do it, John!
I think Jay punched me on the way out. Don't remember much from second shot.
