It's time once again to start with those Second Saturday plans - and there are plenty of promising options out there this month.
Some possibilities I'm mulling include the Vox Cafe's shindig (at 19th and X streets) featuring art by the likes of James C. Collins and Charlotte Prince, plus music by Toronto Blessing. That starts at 6 p.m.
And, of course, there's Sellout/Buyout at the Fools Foundation (in the basement at 19th & K streets) - this is the quarterly extravaganza where you show up with a fistful of cash and browse art, clothes, jewelry and crafts from a ton of local artisans.
Speaking of Sellout/Buyout - its host Olivia Coelho also owns the Olipom clothing store at 1115 21st St. Stop by there between 6-9 p.m on Saturday to check out Jyoti Alexander's "B Sides & Rarities" photography exhibit.
The 28-year-old Sacramento artist is heading off to art school shortly, but in the meantime you can peruse her slightly surreal portraits and still lifes - such as the slightly mind-bending "Fish Eye View," pictured at right. The show runs through July 12. You also can check out her MySpace page for another peek at her work.
