Fritz Kahn was a German doctor, educator, popular science writer, and information graphics pioneer whose brilliant work has all but fallen into oblivion. Chased out of Germany by the Nazis, who banned and burned his books, Kahn emigrated to Palestine, then France, and finally the United States to continue his life’s work.

Though his achievements were numerous, the most notable was the development of creative visualizations to explain complex scientific ideas. Published on the 125th anniversary of Kahn’s birth and destined to bring his work back into the spotlight, this monograph features more than 350 illustrations with extensive captions, three original texts by Fritz Kahn, a foreword by Steven Heller, and an essay about Kahn’s life and oeuvre.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who is part of George Gabin’s – Student Retrospective Fundraiser. Over the past week we’ve collected a total of 65 pieces of original artwork and creative from over 50 exceptionally talented artists. The show has been hung with care and you’ll leave awestruck thanks to the talents of Debra Olin and Greg Kitterle.

Sunday, December 4th is the last day of the show which is an initiative and fundraiser to celebrate a master, a mentor and a friend to many. The show/Open House opens at 12:00pm and the Reception will begin at 2:00pm where the culinary talents of Crystal Paris Brown will be revealed. Although the show ends at 5:00pm I hope to extend the offerings online by posting all the work with additional details to follow.

We hope to have George downstairs to the Gallery between the times of 3:00 – 3:30pm. Please try to be punctual and relax with refreshments and fantastic finger foods that will be available at your leisure. I’ve also created a looping slideshow of images paced with music that will give you a sneak preview to George’s show in February at the Chase Young Gallery. Next to the slideshow will be a book to write something special that you’d like to share with George.

If you were able to contribute to the show please try to be present when the reception closes at 5:00pm so you can depart with your artwork if it hasn’t sold. If you can’t be present I’ll store the artwork at my home until we can arrange a day/time to get together.

Thank you again and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at the show.

Sincerely,

Michael.

Happy Thanksgiving! I would like to take this time to let everyone know that this is the last call for artwork for the show at the Brickbottom Gallery and we have a lot of space to fill. I will be at the gallery this coming Saturday and Sunday (November 26 + 27) from 12:00pm – 2:00pm to collect and store the art for the show. Whether you’re attending the Open House or intend to display a piece of art please send me an email letting me know. I will need a headcount to properly prepare the space to hang the show and I’ll also need to send you a Loan Agreement form to fill out. Knowing the amount of attendees will also help with organizing refreshments for the Open House on December 4th. Below is a brief description + all the links and content you need to participate and stay informed. Thank you.

Happy Holidays! The Brickbottom Gallery will be having a special weekend retrospective of students work to celebrate a special man, a passionate painter, a great teacher and a dedicated mentor, George Gabin. The goal is to reunite students and alumni who know George and to have an opportunity to display a piece of your work that beautifully captures your creative abilities. The show will be a fundraiser with a portion of the proceeds going toward materials for George’s show at the Chase Young Gallery opening in February 2012. A catalog for the show is currently being designed and will be available soon.

Drop off dates for the show will be at the Brickbottom Gallery on Saturday November 26th & Sunday November 27th from 12:00pm – 2:00pm. There will be a small label for you to fill out indicating your name, city + state, title of your work, price to purchase and year you went to Montserrat (optional). We will need assistance gathering the work and hanging the show so if we can get a few more bodies to help out during the hanging + drop off dates to make sure the work is stored properly with the form/label completed it would be helpful.

Raised in Western Australia, David left on his travels across three continents finally landing in San Francisco. A lifelong movie poster collector he made a chance discovery at a flea market of some screen printed posters made for SF movie houses in the 1970’s and became obsessed with the idea of creating custom posters for venues today. Thus, in 2009, with little experience in art/design or screen printing, he started to make posters for The Castro Theatre. He has quickly become well respected among other artists and collectors alike. Due to his unique style, David is becoming more popular with every new print that he creates.

All of David’s posters are printed by hand and by himself on a press set up, that appears to have been made by wombles. It consists of a 40 year old vacuum cleaner, a kitchen table found in a dumpster, a squeegee, a very sore back and a bottle of advil.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) unveiled the preliminary design for its expansion that will double the museum’s exhibition and education space while enhancing the visitor experience and more deeply weaving the museum into the fabric of the city. The new building will both transform the museum and enliven the city by opening up new routes of public circulation around the neighborhood and into the museum. Completion is projected in 2016.

Developed by Snohetta in collaboration with SFMOMA and EHDD of San Francisco, the over 225,000-square-foot expansion will run contiguously along the back of the current building and extend from Howard to Minna streets, allowing for the seamless integration of the two structures. The new building will provide SFMOMA with a greater public profile and an openness that will welcome visitors and project the museum’s role as a catalyst for new ideas, a center for learning, and a place that provides great art experiences for Bay Area residents and visitors.
