Art fans will find much to enjoy at the fiber/DIMENSIONS show of mixed media works by Bay Area artists in the Herbst International Exhibition Hall in the Presidio. The level of work ranges from design exercises to deconstructive one-liners to world-class conceptual pieces. Standouts include Shoko Kageyama Klyce’s riff on the varieties of female genitalia and Stuart Wagner’s witty sculptures. Hours: Wednesday-Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m., April 10-May 19th. The Herbst International Exhibition Hall is at the corner of Moraga and Montgomery Streets in the Presidio. There is ample free parking nearby.

Herbst Hall will also host an “Intersections Symposium” at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 21, featuring four different perspectives on contemporary art. Scheduled panelists include Catherine Clark, owner of the Catherine Clark Gallery in SF; Rene De Guzman, Visual Arts Curator for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts; Deborah Valoma, artist and Professor at the California College of Arts and Crafts; and Steven H. Oliver, art collector and founder of the Oliver Ranch Artist-in-Residence program.
