Every first Friday, a community of artists, gallery owners, musicians, and art lovers (even from San Francisco) gather around the Telegraph and West Grand streets to, not just see art but, experience art as well. One of my favorite galleries, Johansson Projects was showing clever artist, Jennie Ottinger. Unfortunately, the last night to see her work was last night. It was a very fortunate and pleasant surprise to catch her show! Her work is a combination of wit, re-storytelling, and painting. Interestingly, the ability to participate in the exhibition (opening and closing the books to read her versions in book report fashion) made it all the more engaging.
