PHOTOS FROM MI JU'S OPENING AT FECAL FACE DOT GALLERY <-- as part of our IN-N-OUT series. Mi's work is incredible and the closer you get the better it is. Most of the time with paintings of this scale the opposite is true. We're so impressed we offered her a show for April 2010, and she said yes! One of the best painters we've seen in a while. Amazing work.

MI JU OPENING THURSDAY 6-9PM @FFDG <-- Week 3 already for Fecal Face Dot Gallery's Summer Series IN-N-OUT and we couldn't be any more pleased. We've hosted two great shows thus far. Jamie Nelson and Brett Amory... This week's (reception Thurs 6-9pm) comes from San Francisco Art Institute student Mi Ju. She's been here in the US studying for the last year hailing from Korea. She is an extremely talented 24 year old painter whose works are massive and intensely labor intensive. Takes her months to complete one of her 6 feet by 3 feet paintings. I think you're going to be impressed... So come down Thurs. Have a drink, meet Mi Ju, and of course, see her gorgeous work. Some of the best stuff we've seen in SF in some time. Thurs 6/25. 66 Gough St. (6-9pm)

:: Bank-Sea ::

Every so often, art breaks out of its confines to become an event. People who would never normally go to a gallery do so; they feel part of it when they would otherwise feel excluded. The last time this happened was when Olafur Eliasson put a giant sun and a mirrored ceiling in Tate Modern and teenagers rolled around on the ground making shapes they could see reflected in the roof.

And it's happening now at Banksy versus Bristol Museum, the exhibition the elusive graffiti artist suddenly unveiled last week, in which he has his "remixed" the museum's own collection by putting more than 100 of his own artworks among it - by far the largest Banksy show to date, of work mostly never shown in the UK before...

RICHARD KERN OPENING AT RENTAL GALLERY IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA <-- The work shows a lot of what he's capable of doing, but fell short for me in any sort of theme. Ryan Morris got some photos from the opening last Thursday.

:: Parks Good ::

SAVE CALIFORNIA STATE PARKS <-- Just this week, the Governor announced a new proposal to eliminate state funding for our state park system - which will close more than 80% of the 279-unit state park system. That means 25 parks within an hour of San Francisco including our beloved Angel Island, Mount Tamalpais, China Camp and Samuel P. Taylor State Park in Marin County, Mount Diablo, and several coastal beaches along the Peninsula! Save the parks by making your voice heard. Go to the California State Parks Foundation site at www.calparks.org/stopclosures and use the automated form to generate a fax on your behalf directly to the Governor and your state representatives.

We created a Video on our own initiative, which explaines the EU Elections, the distribution of power within the EU as well as the treaty of Lisbon. We would be glad if you could promote it. Glad to. Learning is easier with nice visuals, and learning about the EU has never been so fun. We've embeded the video below, but it looks better larger.
