Tonight, Canessa Gallery begins celebrating its 50 years as an important piece of San Francisco’s artistic, literary, intellectual, and social history. Many artists who have shown at Canessa over the years (including me) have donated a single piece each that will be for sale during the coming month, with proceeds going to Canessa. (Note: Though the gallery is usually free, I believe there is a $20 admission to tonight’s fundraising celebration.) For a bit of history, you can check out this Hoodline article from 2015: http://hoodline.com/2015/08/canessa-gallery-a-hotspot-for-history-art-architecture.
