David Seiler, California Dreaming (via OAKLAND SWEE(t)ART)

David Seiler is one of our big local stars. His figurative expressionist style is definitive and immediately recognizable.

You can see his latest work at Zza’s Wine Bar Gallery when it … Continue reading

Andy Goldsworthy

There is a new exhibition of work by Andy Goldsworthy at the Haines Gallery in San Francisco from November 4 to December 24, 2010.
