Last night, the San Diego Fine Art Society celebrated their three-year anniversary. Highlights?
* Seeing almost everyone—young and old—in their "white tribal chic" gear
* Getting spritzed with a strange frankincense concoction
* Seeing Duke Windsor's new work on the gallery wall
* I didn't get one, but I'm sure the first 100 people were stoked to get a handmade piece of jewelry from Cirello Gallery
The star of the show, though, was the meditative performance piece by artist Rebecca Goodman. She sat in the middle of the gallery in her handmade organic built environment writing down notes for a few hours then, when the drum started beating, she ripped apart the notebook, pinned the paper to the ground and.... I should stop trying to describe the piece. You should just check out the photos and watch the video when it comes out on SDFAS's ArtPulse.TV website.
The soiree, by the way, was held in SDFAS's new home in the NTC Promenade, which boasts a good-sized gallery space. Keep tabs on SDFAS and look for upcoming shows in 2011.
And while we're talking about 2011, SDFAS just announced that the nominations for the Second Annual Art Awards are officially open to the public.
