On Friday, October 21 the San Francisco Arts Commission holds it’s annual benefit party, Commission ’05. They auction off collected “Box Sets” of work from Bay Area Artists. This year I will have a piece in a box curated by Joseph Del Pesco that includes work from some great local artists. The gallery derives nearly a third of its support through private donors and fundraising events like the Commission 05 release party.
