There’s another art opening this weekend, this one at R. B. Stevenson Gallery on Saturday night in La Jolla featuring "Love Songs and Incantations" by New York artist Peter Halasz.

And one more art opening this week, Ruben Ortiz-Torres at the Double Break Gallery on 5th Avenue. There’s a reception Friday night before the show.
