San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

While names such as Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh and Cézanne are synonymous with Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, those artists aren’t the only ones who worked in Paris in the late 19th and 20th centuries creating innovative works of art. Other artists — among them Jacques Bartoli, Albert Dequene and Pieter Gorus — who didn’t receive acclaim during their lives but painted in a similar style, are the subject of a gallery show in San Francisco opening Thursday and running through Aug. 25. The Pasquale Iannetti Gallery presents “Petits Maîtres — Revisited: A Selection of European Minor Impressionists Paintings from 1880-1955.” An opening reception for the show is from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the gallery, 531 Sutter St., San Francisco.

Call (415) 433- 2771 or visit www.pasqualeart.com.

OVER-THE-TOP GLASS ART

Glass as a sculptural medium is the focus of the gallery show “Cold + Hot 2007.” Works by national and international glass artists — Ned Cantrell (pictured), Martin Janecky, Mitch LaPlante, Lee Miltier, Ivan Lee Mora, Heather Palmer, Stig Persson, David Ruth, Lucas Salton, Rob Tribble and Kim Webster — are on view Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. at Micaela Gallery, 333 Hayes St., San Francisco.

Call (415) 551-8118 or visit www.micaela.com.

MAN OF MARBLE

Twelve sculptures in pink and white marble by Uruguay-born, Italy-based artist Pablo Atchugarry are on view in “Espacio Intimo.” The world-recognized artist’s work contains a sensuality and an angular modernism that are distinct in the current sculptural landscape. The show is at Frey Norris Gallery, 456 Geary St., San Francisco; hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays; 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.

Call (415) 346-7812 or visit www.freynorris.com.
