Fall Open Studios 2009 Weekend

Fall Open Studios came and went this past weekend. We had a reception party Friday night and then Open Studios ran Saturday and Sunday. We enjoyed everyone stopping by to see the current exhibit called, "Spirit Boats". We sold some work and made some great contacts. Our warm spiced mulled wine was a hit!

Here are just a couple of photos from the weekend:

One of Jennifer Ewing's Spirit Boats painting. She also had Spirit Boat sculptures hanging from the ceiling which everyone enjoyed.

Here is a shot of Elizabeth Stahl's work which had a San Francisco waterscape theme. Most comments were of her Sutro Baths #2 painting which had a great complementary tone for the exhibit.

Margo Mullen standing by her Monterey Bay encaustics which have gold paint of spirit boats and other marine figures (including one titled, "Wasted Seamonster"). Her wedges were very popular.

Some of the work is available via the website or stop in the gallery or email us if you see something you might be interested in!

"Spirit Boats" Exhibit October-December, 2009

"Spirit Boats"

Kathleen McMahon Fine Art Gallery is hosting an exhibit featuring the new works of three local artists.

Jennifer Ewing is displaying some of her large collection of sculptural Spirit Boats, made from various mixed media materials. Margo Mullen will be showing encaustic beeswax paintings inspired by the Monterey Bay area. Elizabeth Stahl paints in oil and acrylic and will be showing work from her San Francisco seascapes and water series.

There are many affordable pieces in this exhibit and a perfect opportunity for new collectors to have a stunning piece of original artwork in their home or work environment. The exhibit runs from October 9th through the end of December.

There will be an artist reception October 9th, 5-9 pm. This is also the preview night for Fall Open Studios, where 8 artist building collectives in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco will open their doors to the public. Most are within walking distance from each other. Fall Open Studios in the Mission continues Saturday and Sunday (Oct 10-11) 11-5 pm. It's a great time to come see what artists are working on! A map is available on our website under Current Events.

Kathleen McMahon Fine Art is located at 3150 18th Street in the Mission, but the actual gallery is on Treat Avenue, Suite 105 (street level), between 17th and 18th and between Folsom and Harrison.
