Preview: Steve "ESPO" Powers @ Guerrero Gallery San FranciscoJuxtapoz // Saturday, 11 Jun 2011
Along with New Bohemia Signs (we showed you the other day) and Jeff Canham, Steve Powers will be showing at Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco, starting tonight, June 11. The show focuses on the connections between contemporary sign painting and fine art.
As Guerrero Gallery notes, "The graphic sensibility, playfulness, craft, and timelessness of sign painting are evident in all of the artists’ works, which challenge the notion that hand painted signage is a dying tradition. Through an admirable mastery of time-honored craft, these artists show that it is in fact being reinvented for a contemporary age."
This will be the cap on a busy night in SF of shows. But if ESPO is in town, we are going to stop by. His portion of Street Market @ MOCA was one of the most impressive exhibitions we have seen in quite some time.
Here are a bunch of pictures of the set-up...
