Wood for Gold 

Wednesday, Jan 8 2014

It's easy to see why the Tenderloin's Ever Gold Gallery is a favorite among locals. The former bling shop, now a contemporary art gallery, features artists as gritty and diverse as the neighborhood in which it resides. Founder/owner and San Francisco native Andrew McClintock's ever-changing lineup of local and international artists seems to be selected based on his tastes for uninhibited voice and nervy work. It's like a big, refreshing, uncensored, punch in the face. The gallery's fifth birthday will be a showing of 80 emerging and mid-level artists between the ages of 19 and 81. Although you never really know what will happen when 80 artists are shown together in a 500-square-foot space, we can hope to see a few things like Ben Venom's bold grandma-quilting-meets-tattoo-art textiles, eerily delicate drawings from Mary Joy Scott, and humorous sculptures by Jeremiah Jenkins, among many, many others.
