SFWeekly Review (3.29.06): Togonon Gallery Exhibit

"Selected Works: Paintings by Leo Valledor (1936-1989)" In the 1970s, Leo Valledor was a prominent Bay Area painter who had solo exhibitions at SFMOMA and the de Young, but since his death in 1989, the Filipino-American artist has received little public attention. This selection of refined yet ebullient abstractions from the '80s makes that neglect hard to understand…
...Valledor's paintings inject a potentially dry, academic style with personality and sly humor. Through April 8 at Togonon Gallery, 77 Geary (at Grant), S.F.
