I guess I can't really say enough on how important it is to support your community by supporting our artists - so here I go again. City Art Gallery on Valencia Street in the city is an unexpected jewel in the Mission. Variety abounds from wood block and photography to acrylics and jewelry. In particular don't miss the lino blocks prints by Brad Robinson, Katie Gilmartin and Marisa Escolar. Photography by Glenn Hummel and Trish Tunney are "can't miss" pieces.
828 Valencia St. 415-970-9900.
Another thing - the thumbnails associated with each artist's images offers email and web links to even more of their work. Set aside a time to enjoy, browse and be inspired.
