The theme for this month's SF Women Artists Gallery show is Interiors, defined as "revealing the 'inside', the secret; a peek into what wouldn't be seen in a cursory glance". I had all three of my entries accepted. The one above is my latest version of Hope, composited from a manniquin photograph and some other transparent background photographs I had taken. I call it Hope because it brings to mind (my mind at least) a person hoping American Mirrorto get beyond whatever barriers, entrapments, impediments exist. It's in an 18 x 24" plain black frame.

My second piece is called American Mirror, a more traditional interpretation of Interiors. This mirror was hanging in the Chicago Art Institute, and yes, that's me reflected in it. Also 18 x 24" in a black frame.

My small entry is a shot I took one evening in the lobby of 77 Geary St, San Francisco (it's aptly called 77 Geary). Seen below, it's nicely matted in a brown wooden 10 x 12" frame.

77 Geary

The show opens on the February 6th and runs to March 2. The Opening Reception on Thursday, February 7th from 5:30 - 7pm at 3489 Sacramento Street, San Francisco. Hope to see you there. Always lots of interesting people and good nibbles to enjoy.

Have a look at some more of the pieces for this month's show on the sfwomenartists.org website.

And for the East Bay

I again have works at the CK Gallery in Oakland who set the theme for this Valentines Month as Michelle and Barack - but actually all things about love were acceptable. So my two pieces there are Love Notes, framed in black at 16 x 20" and The Look, in a 22 x 28" black frame.

Love Notes and The Look

The official opening reception is on Saturday evening, February 9 from 5 - 7:30 pm at 4125 PIedmont Avenue, Oakland. The show goes on until March 2.

New Works

One of my favorite new pieces was shot the day the herrings ran. I was walking along the embarcadero and the colorful fenders and hundreds of seagulls were too hard to resist. Herring Boat I have done some more but they'll probably be in the next couple of month's shows at the SF Women's Gallery so I'll keep you in suspense.
