    Anthony Meier Fine Arts : JJ Peet - OSVRX

    Comment by AB: Abstract amalgam bronzes with Giacometti overtones look as though they're comprised of scraps and remnants of daily life, while paintings reference various subjects from computer code to the flight path of a drone. Good show; worth seeing.

    University of San Francisco Thacher Gallery : Something From Nothing - Art and Handcrafted Objects From America's Concentration Camps

    Comment by AB: In these days of political profiling, sometimes we need a little reminder of how misguided our decision-making can be. See over 100 works of art, objects, photographs, crafts and more, created by Japanese Americans who were forced from their homes, incarcerated and relocated to "Interment Camps" for the duration of World War II. Definitely worth a visit.
