The Opening Night crowd at the Texas Street Pavillion was quite rowdy. Curators, collectors, movie stars, museum and gallery personnel and old friends came out to watch the Film "Bicycle Trip" at the artspace called home by Dr. Kjersti Kirkeby and Peter Kirkeby. The last stragglers left at 4am after draining the keg of "Coastal Fog and depleting all the alcohol left in the place.
The 1st International Bayennale exhibition @ Kirkeby, 128 Texas Street, San Francisco was an eclectic mix of artists from California, New Mexico, France, Holland, Germany and Mexico. The work was as diverse as the origins of the artists.
Theodora Plas, Dre de Man, Damon Edwards, Tammy Glover-Edwards, Greg Edwards and Penelope Edwards preparing to dine in The hague.
Theodora Plas is a fine artist living in The Hague, in The Netherlands. She is shown here on the streets of Amsterdam with her art car.

Rosanna Albertini, shown here, sitting between Penelope Edwards and Ed Hamilton at Hal's in Venice, CA, arranged to have some Yves Tremorin Photographs shipped from Los Angeles for the Bayennale @ Kirkeby
David Jones worked as a volunteer at the Bayennale offices during the most discouraging of times. He represented all of us well by his administrative efforts. He represented himself extremely well with this installation.
Michael and Toni Jackson made the trip from The Crenshaw District of Los Angeles to the Bay area for the 1st Bayennale.
The two works lent to the exhibition by Greg Edwards.
Michael and his wife Toni Jackson, drove the apotheosis of Hot Rods from Los Angeles to San Francisco where the car was disabled on 6th Street, near Folsom in the South of Market District. Michael was approached by a group of crackheads who, assisted him in the repair of his "70 Camaro and who were taken aback by his designation of them as "Angels". The car/sculpture arrived at the Texas Street Pavillion only minutes before the doors opened to the public. It was securely in place by the time the crowds arrived and was the center of attention for more than a few art lovers.
Katya Gardea Brown flew to San Francisco from Mexico City and installed 6 photographs in the Texas Street Pavillion documenting a conceptual work previously executed in Mexico.
Kay Harvey shipped 4 paintings for inclusion in the exhibition @ Kirkeby. On the 29th of July Kay and her daughter Noel Harvey, drove from Sante Fe to San Francisco to attend the special dinner of the artists involved in the show.
Diane Buckler visited San Francisco in late June with husband, Bob Burtis and son Dimitri. Ms. Buckler left several strong Iris prints for installation in the exhibition at the Texas Street Pavillion.
Yves Tremorin of St. Malo, Bretagne, France was represented by 4 Photographs. One of his Mother and three of his son, Ael Tremorin.
Theodora Plas sent two exquisite Serigraphs from The Hague by special courier, Dre de Man.
