My challenge this month was to submit art to fit the gallery show theme 'Homage to a Favorite Artist'. That was a bit tricky since I have many, many favorite artists - from Matisse to Warhol, Breugel to Rothko, not to mention Henri Cartier-Bresson, but in the end I managed. The first started as a photo I took last Autumn in Visalia, CA and, well how could I not think of Hopper, certainly one of my favorites. It has a wide white mat and is framed in white wood. My other submission is a photo I took at the De Young Museum of a small Calder sculpture - While the piece itself is my kind of whimsical, I was particularly attracted to the reflections of the patrons on the sculpture case.
The opening reception is on Thursday, June 9 from 5:30 to 7 pm at the SF Women Artists Gallery, 3489 Sacramento St.
Thank you all who came to my show at the Bay View Boat Club. It was well received I was very happy to fill so many orders!
