Even though the year is drawing to a close, the Bay Area art scene is cranking it up, with a number of not-to-miss shows and events over the coming weeks. November may be time for cozy sweaters and mulled beverages, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit at home paging through the Lands’ End catalog. Get yourself a travel mug and check out some art.
Oct. 29 – Nov. 29: Some other sense of time and space at Interface Gallery, Oakland. Interface Gallery, one of the converted stables lining Oakland’s quaint Temescal Alley, will contain just one painting by Linda Geary and one sculpture by May Wilson in this two-person show. Geary builds up and sands down layers of intense color in her large-scale works on panel. Wilson’s tubular sculptures combine industrial materials with pleasantly slumpy forms. References to (slumpy) bodies and the physical act of making art abound, even in this pared-down display. Plus, there’ll be plenty of room in the gallery for you to enjoy the opening reception on Friday, Nov. 6, 6-9pm. FREE!
