If you are in San Francisco tonight, the only activity you should have planned is attending Ever Gold Gallery’s five year anniversary group show! Congratulations! With a hurricane of change happening everywhere you look in San Francisco, which includes many galleries closing, it’s comforting to see places like Ever Gold Gallery persevere and flourish through it all. To celebrate a healthy five years, owner and founder, Andrew McClintock has enlisted 80 artists for a massive group show that will occupy the moderately small 500-square-foot space. Check out the fantastic list of artists. It's a long one.

To celebrate 100 Years of Music at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, their 2013 Artist in Residence Anne Patterson has adorned the space with her beautiful Graced With Light installation. Patterson envisioned it as "a series of light pathways, connecting heaven and earth, manifest as ribbons. The ribbons carry our prayers, dreams and wishes skyward, and, in turn, grace streams down the ribbons to us."

Street Art // Tuesday, December 24, 2013
Local up and coming Bay Area artist, Zio Zeigler, painted a monstrous monochromatic character on a rather difficult to paint textured facade a few months back. The young artist’s mural is packed filled with detail, drawing influence from primitive paintings and sculptures. If you want to see this piece in person it can be seen on Mission Street, between 7th and 8th in San Francisco.

Graffiti // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Last week, S.F-based artist and exemplary friend to many, Kurt Dalen, was a victim of a hit and run accident in the Mission District of San Francisco. Kurt was a San Francisco Art Institute graduate who created figurative paintings, mixed media work, was a prolific graffiti writer and had been published in our February 2012 issue. Of all his unique characteristics, optimism was his greatest. He had the rare ability to look at the positive side of every situation and had a permanent smile that was deeply infectious. Everyone in the Bay Area and beyond will greatly miss your presence and charm. RIP Kurt Dalen.

We were lucky enough to spend the weekend at West Coast Craft here in San Francisco, we were also lucky enough to become familiar with San Francisco's very own Sean Newport. Newport creates these three-dimensional works by hand cutting geometric shapes and tiling them together to create peaks and valley's faced with electric colors and mesmerizing patterns. See an awesome collection of Newport's work after the jump.
