Tribute to the SFAI at Togonon Gallery

I was utterly delighted to see Julius Hatofsky's work up at Togonon Gallery. He was one of my teachers at SFAI and the one that I remember the most fondly. The show at Togonon gallery is celebrating a decade or more of the SFAI and featuring many wonderful artists that don't get a lot of play.
Of course, I love Hatofsky's rich and expressive abstracts but other artists include Deborah Remington, Peter Foraks and Leo Valledor among others. The show is timed to coincide with the San Francisco Decorator Showcase exhibition entitled the "History of the San Francisco Art Institute." It will only be up through May 25, 2009 while the current show at Togonon Gallery closes at the end of the month. This show will be followed by a photography show, featuring David Johnson and Jack Fulton, both with ties to the SFAI.

Togonon Gallery - through May 30th.
77 Geary Street, 2nd Floor
