Day 25: Bodies in Motion

I’ve really been looking forward to this. The Renner Gallery is open!

For the next 7 weeks, some fantastic work is on display on Market St. between Castro and Noe.


John Renner is (you guessed it) an acrobat.

The photographs by Gregory Bartning and Mark Jenkins are astonishing. There are some intriguing close-up botanicals, and many extraordinarily powerful male and female nudes.

Several of the models are good friends of mine, and it’s amazing to see how Gregory and Mark capture them. In this work, “artist” can refer person in front of the camera, as well as the one behind it.

I’ve done flying trapeze with John for more years than either of us is ready to count. We’ve actually traveled and performed professionally.

Before seeing the gallery, I stopped here for breakfast and a nap.

…and after, met a good friend (an expert in software engineering, saber fencing and crime fighting in general) for dinner. More on her later.

Tomorrow: Time to get out of town for a few days.

Random assertion: Art is not about what you could do; it’s about what you do, and how others react.
