SF Recycled includes work completed by artists during their residencies, as well as work that they created since their time at the Disposal Center. The range of expressions in SF Recycled is varied, and along with examples of assemblage and collage, will include drawings, sculptures and photographic, and video installations. Through January 26.

The six illustrators featured in November's exhibition run this gamut of experience- from artists in their first year of full time illustration, to seasoned college professors.

ART AT THE MAIN UP: My Daily Obsession, works by Terrece Beesley through November 10, is an exhibition of watercolors from a unique point of view. Beesley is drawn to "the trivial things that we hold onto, the cultural icons of our daily life. To me these mundane objects say more about us as a culture than any landscape could aspire to. So I paint the 'gems' from my personal collection. In my world, flowers and crystal goblets coexist with comic strips, coffee cups, old photos, postcards and popsicles." Her intricately composed paintings reveal very few flat washes. She mixes her colors on the paper, her energetic brushtrokes giving the work rhythm and power.

UPCOMING: For the Love of Red, bold watercolors by Joy Nunn.|3| Nunn says that she is pleased with the results of the barely year old non-profit artists’ co-operative which she helped found a year ago.
