    I was at In vitro last Friday October 3rd for first Friday opening which coincided with the opening of Matt Gonzalez show at In vitro.

    Matt Gonzalez is an accomplished fine artist based in San Francisco and Ralph Nader's Vice Presidential Running Mate. His Collages were stunning, all modestly priced at $500. and when I was there, 12 had sold.

    First of all, despite the fact that In vitro is tiny, it is an unexpected find of a fine art gallery representing 5 or 6 for not known reason unknown artists every one of them in full control of their medium.

    Off the several galleries open that night, In vitro was the only one jammed packed and lead by Matt Gonzalez, all beautiful people.

    It is worth mentioning that In vitro mounts monthly formal installations with pedestals and walls freshly painted for every first Friday opening night along with vinyl lettering on the walls announcing the name of the artist being showcased.

    In addition, William Hunter, the owner, was serving Stags Leap Petite Syrah which is one of my all time faborite red wines and Veuve Clicquot Champagne and Sparkling Water in rydel glassware.......hmmmm, OK I guess!

    Not a bad combination given its location.

    I attended the Flat Iron Art opening last Friday, June 6, 2008. This was my first introduction to the In Vitro Gallery.

    It was a surprise to see (what appeared to be) a space set up in formal gallery suit with pedestals, clean walls and works formally displayed in a building full of artists, their studios, and their cohorts. Inside, the art was a smattering of different artists (as opposed to the expected one that rents the space) and their pieces, most of which I though were talented.

    However, the temperature in this space was awful! The combined heat and humidity made it feel like it was 100 degrees in this particular space. While the entire building was muggy, this gallery was the worst, bad enough for me to swear it off for the next summer opening.

    This is one to skip from June - September. It was good, but not THAT good.
