Saturday : Bottlecraft, Helmuth, Glashaus

If you're bouncing around town Saturday night, here are three suggestions for art-related happenings in Little Italy, Downtown, and Barrio Logan:

Yeller Studio is teaming up with Bottlecraft again, this time showcasing the illustrative work of Dane Danner. Check out a show preview and details here.

Helmuth Projects, in the Library Lofts on E St., is hosting a stacked group show with each artist "reinterpreting a personal momento that signifies loss, absence, and the passing of time". Check out the artist roster and details here.

To cap your night off, head down to The Glashaus in Barrio Logan for their third anniversary party. There will be open artist studios, live music from the Mattson 2, and the night's proceeds will benefit the fine folks at ICE Gallery.
