ArtPadSF hosted its second annual boutique art fair over the weekend, which coincides with ArtMrkt and SFFAF. Unlike your traditional art fair with booths, this one takes over the Phoenix Hotel in the heart of the Tenderloin District in San Francisco with each gallery taking up their own room in the hotel, which gives a more laid-back pop-up gallery vibe. Throughout the weekend, various programming (lectures, music performances, panel discussions) took place in the courtyard as well as in the bar of the hotel.The fair […]

Last Friday, 111 Minna hosted the opening reception for two tattoo artists, Henry Lewis and Lango Oliveria from the renowned San Francisco-based studio Skull & Sword. The show featured an array of drawings and paintings in various sizes and mediums, as well as a few collaborative works. Henry Lewis’s artwork tends to breath new life into more antiquated/classic imagery, while Lango’s take the view into another dimension embedded in mythology where beasts roam the world. More photos from the opening from The Sciolist after the […]
Thursday evening, 111 Minna in San Francisco hosted the opening for Nathan Ota and Risk’s collaborative exhibition, That Was Then, This Is Now. The two respected graffiti artists first collaborated over 25 years in high school, but had lost contact ever since. It was not until last year, when Greg Simkins and Jeff Soto worked on murals with Risk (and knew about the two’s previous history), that it was suggested that they reconnect again. This lead to a collaborative mural at Hurley Space last October […]
San Francisco, last weekend, hosted a slew of fine art fairs around the city.

Each room of the hotel featured a different gallery’s display and the lounge played host to panel discussions on art. Some of the galleries that had a room at the fair included: White Walls, Gallery Anno Domani, 111 Minna, Spoke […]
Following LeBasse Project’s SF Pop Up Gallery debut (covered) and Fecal Face Dot Gallery’s Marco Zamora and Derek Albeck show (covered), AM wrapped up a busy and fun-filled night on the town by hopping down to 111 Minna for the opening of Last Gasp’s 40th Anniversary. The underground comic purveyor and alternative arts distributor has pulled out all the stops, calling on their extensive roster of freaks, fine artists and everyone in between. With an all star lineup featuring such luminaries as R. Crumb, the […]
On the last Tuesday of September, AM visited 111 Minna Gallery for their monthly installment of Sketch Tuesdays.Â Originally held a once a year at Southern Exposure under the moniker “Moniker Drawing Rally”, the event has now grown to a monthly event featuring an ever changing cast of Bay Area artists.Â November’s installment of Sketch Tuesdays fell on the eve of 111 Minna‘s “Neighborhoods” show (opening/setup) and featured many of the “Neighborhoods” artists.Â In attendance were such SF luminaries as Mike Giant, Matt Furie, N8 […]
111 Minna will be presenting their latest show, “Neighborhood SF,” with the opening scheduled for tonight.Â Curated by Martin Olive and Ryan Malley, “Neighborhoods” is easily looking like one of the better group shows this year.Â Having SF artists interpret their respective neighborhoods is a great concept, and when you’ve got the likes of Jeremy Fish, Sylvia Ji, N8 Van Dyke, Mike Giant and David Choong Lee involved, well, let’s just say it takes the boring out of neighboring artists….
