Art I'm Looking At: San Francisco Fine Print Fair (January 29-30, 2011)

Once a year, usually at the end of January or first week of February, some of the best fine print dealers in the country converge on San Francisco's Fort Mason Center to show and sell prints and drawings. The quality of the offerings is consistently very high. You can find just about anything--from old masters to contemporary work by local artists, work ranging from under $100 to tens of thousands of dollars. One of my favorite among the local artists is David Kelso, who appears to live and work in Oakland. He makes prints using traditional methods--mostly etching and aquatint--but layered in complex and unusual ways (the first photo is one of his works). I always enjoy seeing the show, even if I don't buy anything. The show is going on again today, January 30th, from 11:00AM to  5:00PM.
