This, our Thirty-Third 
Art Festival 

And it is again my pleasure to bid you 
welcome. May the fog and wind absent 
themselves and the sun provide us favored 
treatment. 

Our annual review of the creative life of 
the Bay Area has always provided a casual 
friendly ambience. A place to savor the 
arts, watch the public and meet old friends. 
An exciting and interesting urban setting 
for a remarkable market. 

The Festival itself is a relative constant, 
but the exhibits are always as fresh and new 
and as changing as is the world of art— 
the world of the spirit. It is refreshing, it is 
educational, it may be adventurous . . . and 
it is always a joy.

The Art Commission is celebrating the 33rd Annual Arts Festival with AWARDS of HONOR 
to Jacques Schnier, Sculptor, and writer Herbert Cold. 



HERBERT GOLD, Novelist 

AWARD OF HONOR EXHIBITION, 3rd FLOOR, MAIN BRANCH, 
SAN FRANCISCO PGBUC UBRARY 

The outstanding cultural contribution of Gold's novels, The Great 
American Jackpot (1969), Waiting for Cordelia (1977), and 
Fathers (1962) are among the most distinguished prose written in 
the last decade. The Bay Area environ appears to be a stimulant to 
the creative mind of the writer. Herbert Gold enjoys a faithful 
audience as a novelist and as a distinguished essayist. 

Examples of his books and memorabilia will be on view through 
October 26. 



JACQGES SCHNIER, Sculptor 

AWARD OF HONOR EXHIBITION, "CAPRICORN ASGNDER" 
GALLERY, 165 GROVE ST. 

The vitality of Schnier's works are a testimonial to this distinguished 
artist, whose achievement is unique among contemporary artists. His 
large, sparkling, crystal acrylic sculptures, absorbing and reflecting 
the light, are among the original achievements of this master and an 
inspiration to his peers. The vision and breadth of his conception has 
enriched and enlarged the horizons of three-dimensional art. 

We are pleased to present a cross-section of the works produced by 
Jacques Schnier in the last decade— an exquisite commentary of a 
humanistic thinker. 



The exhibition will be on view through October 26. 



Jacques Schnier— "Indora" 1975, carved crystal acrylic, 14" x 5V2"

HERBERT GOLD 

From The Heart of the Artichoke 

My father, his horny hands black with sulphur, lit a cigar with a brief, modest, but 
spectacular one-handed gesture, his thumbnail crr-racking across the blue- 
headed kitchen match; when he described his first job in America, selling water to 
the men building the skyscrapers, teetering across the girders for fifteen cents a 
pail, green flecks fumed and sailed in his yellowish Tartar eyes; he peeled an 
artichoke with both hands simultaneously, the leaves flying toward his mouth, 
crossing at the napkin politely tucked at the master juggler's collar, until with a 
groan that was the trumpet of all satisfaction he attained the heart; he— but he was 
a man of capabilities, such feats apart. 

As my mother said of him before they married, "He's well-off. Lots of personality." 
Older than the other women of her family, she used the word Lvell-off'm a primitive 
sense, to signify a general relationship with the world, not substracting from the 
term all but its usual financial refrain: "Well-off very, he's a Buick . . ." But she took 
the word from Aunt Sarah and Aunt Ethel; it's important that the vocabulary 
derives from economic security, to be extended outward only by an exceptional 
act of vitality. We, my brothers and 1, could never eat enough for her. "Don't 
aggravate me. Eat, Eat," she would say. 

"We already ate," I pointed out. 

"But look at your father!"

printed in Hudson Reuiew, 1951. Copyright 1951, 1960 by Herbert Gold, and used with the

SPECIAL EXHIBITS 

"STONEHENGE IN ICE" 

Art Grant, "the world's foremost ice sculptor," creates Stonehenge 
"as it is now." 



BAY AREA PHOTOGRAPHERS -"Second Time Around" 

Bay Area Photographers is a non-profit organization dedicated to expressing 
photographically the heritage, growth and daily life of our Bay Area through 
group projects. This year's theme illustrates the new trend in our society towards 
re-using things of the past: re-cycling, the restoration of old buildings and the 
creation of new uses for old objects. 



BLANCHE PHILUPS HOWARD 

The brilliantly conceived and hammered sculptures by Blanche Phillips Howard 
are surging from the void with a primeval life. Her mastery and control of the 
brutal matter is balanced with the mystery and sensuousity of the form. The high 



reliefs and fragments achieve a particularly strong impact with the dreamy 
qualities of discovery. 

We are honored to present these works by an outstanding pioneer sculptor— an 
original contribution to this year's Event. 



CAUFORNIA SOCIETY OF PRINTMAKERS- "Visual Signature" 

The "Visual Signature" of an artist is that look which is uniquely his or her own. 
The public is encouraged to focus on this aspect of the creative process by 
comparing their impressions with the artist's own statement. The prints exhi- 
bited in this group include a variety of directions, styles and techniques emphas- 
izing the rich diverseness found in local contemporary printmaking. 

GRAPHIC ARTS WORKSHOP 

A group exhibition of original prints by members of the Workshop, based on the 
theme of the elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. 



GROUP 30 

A multi-cultural and intergenerational cross section of artists and craftspeople, 
coordinated by San Francisco collagist, Nabuo Kitagaki. The group title repre- 
sents Mr. Kitagaki's 30th consecutive year of involvement with the Annual. 



MOEBIUS VIDEO 

In the Art Commission's "Capricorn Asunder" Gallery, Moebius Video will again 
shine electronic art for the sixth year. Coordinated by Eron Brennan of the Public 
Eye Inc., this year's video exhibition "turns on" the public to new views of T.V. 

POSTER BRIGADE 

Art as a weapon in the coming storms of the eighties. An exhibit of large, new, 
full-color revolutionary posters. 

WOMEN'S CAGCaS FOR ART 

An organization of studio artists, art historians and museum personnel formed 
within the College Art Association to address issues affecting the welfare of 
women in these fields. Nine women of distinction in the arts from Northern 
California will be honored with a special pavilion and in an honorary ceremony at 
12 noon, Saturday, September 29. 



EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITS 

ALVARADO ART WORKSHOP, INC. 

An exhibit highlighting the AJvarado Art Workshop, Inc., CETA artist and garden- 
ing program. Displays include children's art work and a recently published 
documentary book, "The Alvarado Experience." Workshops will be conducted 
in face painting, mobile making and portrait painting. 



ARTISTS' EQUITY ASSOCIATION, 
NORTHERN CAUFORNIA CHAPTER 

The Northern California Chapter of Artists' Equity Association has been in 
operation for over thirty years in San Francisco. Artists' Equity represents all 
artists' rights on a national, state and local level. Their Festival kiosk provides 
information acquainting artists with fair business practices, legal issues, 
exhibition space and studio housing. 



CENTRAL CITY HOSPITAUTY HOUSE, 
ARTS & CRAFTS PROGRAM 

Hospitality House, a multi-service agency in San Francisco's Tenderloin, offers 
free arts and crafts facilities and instruction to residents of the neighborhood. 
The ceramics, etchings, paintings and weavings exhibited here are examples of 
the work of Tenderloin artists and craftspersons. The program is supported by 
sales of work in their Hospitality House storefront, at 146 Leavenworth. 



COLUMBIA PARK BOYS' CLUB 

Columbia Park Boys' Club, located in San Francisco's Mission District, is a

the masks are smoked with dried leaves and immersed in cold water, creating a 
metallic, iridescent effect. Persons are encouraged to complete masks at her 
pottery workshop, 330 Fell St.
