Le Weekend: Jan 10-11th

One week into the new year and it's busy, busy, busy. Two shows are closing today (eeek) and I'd recommend that you go to either ASAP. Or both, if you have the energy. Both are good shows, coming from different ends of the world, both geographically and artistically.

Once Upon a Dream: Cartoon Art Museum. Closing January 10th. The exhibit explores the creation of one of Walt Disney Studios’ most enduring films, from pencil art and model sheets to animation cels, color guides and behind-the-scenes photographs of the cast and crew. Almost ten years in the making, Sleeping Beauty was designed to look like no other Disney film, drawing from both medieval illustrations and cutting-edge 1950s graphic design.

Head of a Buddha image. Approx. 1800. Thailand; Wat Phra Chettuphon, Bangkok. Stucco. The Avery Brundage Collection,

Emerald Cities: Asian Art Museum. Closing January 10th: Asian Art Museum

Suzanne Husky: New Artist-in-Residence at the de Young:
The de Young Museum hosts Suzanne Husky: Forest through January 31 as part of the Artist-in-Residence Program in the Kimball Education Gallery. Husky builds forests out of textile trees made from recycled fabric, responding to the museum’s surroundings and landscape paintings from the de Young’s permanent collection. Visitors are invited to bring in fabric and create trees using the park as inspiration. The fabric patterns and colors create foliage texture and reproduce natural and artificial biodiversity.

When is Flora Davis' reception happening on the 14th?

I just looked at the invite and it doesn't give a time. I've e-mailed Flora and will post the info here when I get it. It's not on the gallery website either.
But I will update as soon as I know. Her new work is striking.

I found it on the Art Span website - reception is 6-9 and bring your ID; only 21 and over allowed in. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
