Frank Stella, It’s Complicated… ArtPoint Valentine’s Gala
Saturday, February 11, 2017
7-8 pm – VIP Reception
8 pm-12 am – Main Event

Be it lust or love (or something in between) the 2017 Valentine’s Gala explores the complicated relationships present in the era of social media and displayed in Frank Stella: A Retrospective.

Some works appear to be quiet and reserved, while others seem to reach outward to engage the viewer in a passionate embrace. Frank Stella’s work exemplifies the complex and evolving relationship between an artwork and its viewer. That makes this exhibition a perfect metaphor for our modern romantic liaisons.

Join us for delicious bites, cocktails, music by Tennessee Thomas (IG: @tenneseebunny), late-night exhibition-viewing, and several stolen kisses. Proceeds from this event support exhibitions and programs at the Fine Arts Museums.

Paris Combo

When: February 14-15, 2017
Where: SF JAZZ Center – Miner Auditorium
Age Limit: 21+
How Much: $35-95
Tickets: Purchase Here

Screen Shot 2017-02-07 at 4.45.01 PM

Delightfully cosmopolitan and seductively swinging, Paris Combo is as diverse and sophisticated as the city from which the band hails. Combining Gypsy swing with elements of flamenco, chanson and alt-cabaret, the quintet mixes in Latin and North African rhythms for good measure. Holding all the diverse elements together is the sprightly vocalist Belle du Berry, who’s joined by Australian trumpeter/keyboardist David Lewis, virtuoso bassist Benoit Dunoyer de Segonzac, French drummer François Jeannin, and Potzi, an Algerian Gypsy guitarist whose virtuosic style and natty appearance recalls Django Reinhardt. Formed in the early 1990s, the group had its origin in the retro review Champêtres de Joie, which performed in the historic Berry Zèbre cinema in Paris’ Belleville district and collaborated with renowned choreographer Philippe Decouflé at the closing ceremony of the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville. The band recorded four studio albums and a live session while touring the world incessantly until disbanding in 2005 to pursue other interests. Regrouping for their first album in six years, Paris Combo recently released 5, a session with all surreal humor, showmanship, and irresistible bounce that have come to define this entrancing quintet. They return for these exclusive Valentine’s Day performances.
