In Focus: White Walls SF 10 Year Anniversary

Always inspiring, White Walls SF Gallery threw a hell-of-a-party on Friday to celebrate its ten years in existence. The party also marked the opening of a new, grandiose space at 886 Geary in San Francisco, where curator and owner Justin Gairla pulled out the big guns with works by artists such as Shepard Fairey, ROA, Russell Young, Miss Bugs and Casey Gray, to name a few.

Max ‘Ripo’ Rippon, who we interviewed recently, and Joshua Petker both showed in the Project Spaces and were present to represent their work. In fact, a good handful of the artists mingled with party goers, happy to talk about their art and process. Meanwhile in the back of the gallery, Robert Christian Malmberg snapped a few collodion portraits allowing viewers to experience the 1850’s photo process. He’ll be continuing this series in his pop-up studio throughout March.

The White Walls SF “Ten Year Anniversary Show” will run from March 9 – April 6, 2013 at the new gallery space, located at 886 Geary in San Francisco. If you find yourself needing some art infusion, stop in and check out the work. It’s worth a trip to the Tenderloin.
