Electric Works Plugs In at New Location
Rent was hiked on Electric Works, a fine arts print shop and gallery in a beautiful old industrial building on 8th and Mission, so the owners were recently forced to move. This leaves an abandoned building in the neighborhood that is already receiving public notices from the city about graffiti, which has sprouted on empty walls and windows.
The new location is a couple of blocks away on 1360 Mission Street between 9th and 10th Streets, with a spooky, beautiful Katherine Westerhout print in the front window, Grossingers Pool, Catskills I.
On Saturday evening, there was a Housewarming Group Show that featured a couple of great prints/paintings from 2001 by Enrique Chagoya, including Dream above and Jim Star of the Border Patrol below.
If there were an extra $12,000 lying around, I know what pieces would be hanging on my wall.
