Art-centric clothing house RVCA finally opened the doors on its first solo retail outlet at the corner of Haight & Asbury in San Francisco last nite with a celebratory art opening "Family Tree," featuring new work by BARRY McGEE (aka: TWIST, aka: Robert Pimple), PHIL FROST, and CRAIG STECYK (unfortunately, scheduling conflicts prevented PUSHEAD from participating as advertised), installed throughout the space. If that weren't enough, opening nite attendees also got an incredibly rare display of live painting from Phil Frost who was planted in the center of the gallery quietly working on a stack of paintings throughout nite while TOMMY GUERRERO kept the vibe intact with a live set. Luckily for us, DARREN "DR" ROMANELLI (portraits) and lovely photographer-at-large JIALIN LUH (installation shots) were on hand to snap the action. HAVE A LOOK:
