Melissa heads to San Francisco for an opening that includes her works at Velvet da Vinci gallery

As promised earlier, me and Turbo hit San Francisco on Friday arvo just gone for the opening of the B&B, W&V exhibition at Velvet da Vinci gallery.

It’s a great show, the works are by turn interesting, punchy, engaging, beautiful and thought provoking, and the installation is a credit to Mike, Elizabeth, the specially created hangers (by Tom) and the gallery. It’s a wonderful space, huuuge in jewellery terms, and with that allows sensitive display of all types of works in its diverse yet cohesively presented array of cabinets.

Works by:

Dail Behennah, Michael Brennand-Wood, Stephen Bottomley, Ken Bova, Melissa Cameron, Jim Cotter, Susan Cross, Robert Ebendorf, Beate Gegenwart, Caroline Gore, Jane Harrison, Gretchen Goss, Arthur Hash, Thomas Hill, Timothy Information Limited, Basil Kardasis, Felix Lindner, Megan McGaffigan, Trish O’Hara , Matthew Partington, Maria Phillips, Marissa Saneholtz, Marlene True, Elizabeth Turrell, Jessica Turrell.

It was great to catch both Mike and Elizabeth again after our rendezvous at Touchstone last month (ooh, looks like I forgot to post about that – consider this reference a teaser…), and San Francisco really turned on the charm for my first visit.
