Pretend this post came out on Friday for Fashion Friday even though I’m writing about our Saturday. I know, I’m completely off on my dates.
There were so many spectacular events this weekend, including the Maker Faire. I have always wanted to check that out; I know a lot of Burners go and showcase their inventions. But alas, I opted to attend two of three big art fairs happening in the city all this weekend. I guess I care more about art than science!
We started the day at the SF Fine Art Fair at Fort Mason. More than 70 contemporary galleries exhibited with most of the art ranging in price from $1,000-$20,000. I had my eye on several pieces and made sure to get business cards to track these galleries. I was really into these paintings of guns used in famous movies, particularly one with a bright pink background. I have to have it! Here are some pics from the SF Fine Art Fair.
We ended the day at artMKT, an inaugural art show at the Concourse Exhibition Center with a mix of contemporary and historical work from several famous artists. The work that I fell in love with were actual guns where the artist had removed all of the firing parts, plated the gun in gold, and reupholstered a part of it with a fashion designer label like Gucci. I really want to buy one, but Dean insists it’s way too expensive. Boo. It’s the very first picture on this blog post.
