Live Worms showcases 'other' work by chalk artists

The third annual Arte di Gesso Tribute Exhibit at Live Worms Gallery in San Francisco features “other” work by chalk artists who participated in the North Beach Festival in June. Here’s your chance to see what these artists do at other times and with other materials when they aren’t crouching on the ground rubbing their fingers into the asphalt. Artworks include paintings, etchings, screen prints, paper sculpture, drawings and collage.

Additional events in conjunction with the show include play readings of work by Ignacio Zulueta, one of the artists, at 7 p.m. Thursday; poetry night with George Tsongas at 7 p.m. Friday and a “beatnik-hop” at 9 p.m. Saturday in which visitors may revisit North Beach circa 1958, with bongos, berets and beards.

All events are free; the gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. The show runs through Sunday. Live Worms is at 1345 Grant Ave., San Francisco. Call (415) 819-0500 for information.
