> DESCRIPTION

Show featured painting by April Berger, Carina Lomeli, Christine Rossi, Cynda Valle, Jane Neilson, Joanna Katz, Matthew Kowalski, Ray Patlán, and Salma Arastu; photography by Eric Murphy, Francesca Roccaforte, and Paola Coda; collage by Janet Manalo and Tamara White; sculpture by Cynthia Tom and Nancy Worthington; prints by Jan Dove, Liz Maxwell, Priscilla Birge, and Shizue Seigel.

Nearly all pieces are for sale, and 100% of the proceeds go back to the artists.

Patria Vieja y Querida- this mixed media piece was inspired by a photographer from Italy, Tina Modotti, who took a dramatic and inspiring picture that for me captivated the struggle of Mexican women in 1928 during a strike. The rough surface in this piece signifies the importance of public mural work that has over exposed our connection to the earth and change in seasons for the masses.

Hope- May 2006, an Immigrant Rights march took place just down the street from my class in San Francisco, instead of taking my lunch I joined the march. I captured what came to be one of my favorite  paintings.“Hope” on her fathers’ broken shoulders fighting for his rights.
