San Francisco

“San Francisco Women Artists”

This is the usual run of bad to mediocre offerings that one has come to expect of “club annuals.” It should be noted, however, that not all of the artists represented are mere “Sunday painters” and that many are cap work than is shown here. Curiously, the painting and graphics sections are comprised mainly of examples of abstract expressionism, hard edged abstraction, “pop art” and very little “Bay Area figurative.” The sculpture is uniformly abysmal. Crafts fare best of all with some rather good examples of hand wrought costume jewelry.
