They say that getting there is half the fun of a trip, so for our last day of Escapes month we think these paintings by Anna Ura are quite fitting. Entitled, Before
, the series is based on photos and video stills taken while traveling...
However the images aren't of the final destination, but instead are taken during the time spent between locations. As someone whose memory is filled with blurry views from train and car windows, we can appreciate Ura's
interest in capturing those moments. You can see some of the artist's work online at The Beholder
, or stop by Four Barrel Coffee
in the Mission on August 7 from 6 to 8pm for the opening of her new show. For more information on Anna Ura, click here
