VALUE = VOICE @ The Box Factory San Francisco

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting *Bernadette*, a musician and artist who has dedicated her life to creating...not just creating for the sake of doing so, but to spark conversation and to invoke a sense of duty and purpose in her work. Whether it be sculpture-new genre, painting or sound, she is constantly developing her work while collaborating with other like-minded artists and designers to promote social awareness and change.

*Bernadette* is also the founder of The Box Factory, an amazing live-in studio/workspace/gallery/concert venue right in the heart of the Mission Distric of San Francisco. This place is special and there is nothing else like it in the's a must see for those in the City who are not only "in-the-know," but for those who wish to see work from passionate people who care.

So here's the deal...for all of you who live in or near the City...I want to formally invite you to The Box Factory's next gallery opening for two reasons...1) because I would love to see you there and 2)because it is going to be amazing. And this next one is going to be big!

Here's the info:

“Value = Voice,” three women’s embodied perspectives of the eco/socio free fall of the 2008-10 “Recession”/Depression. In this playfully edgy, three-woman, post-post-modern show, we are examining themes of value & risk, and throwaway objects & people. Each woman’s art works relate to their embodied experience of the socio-economic free-fall; the Recession/Depression. As we share our individual voices (exploring unemployment, housing, and isolation) through female lenses and symbols of domesticity (implied body, sex, food, etc.) a chorus forms. Choosing our own materials we are using both found objects (rusty metal and broken glass), and things which are precious (a lock of hair, personal photos, and rubies). We invite the public to share in this exploration of private and public issues and join in the conversation as we examine the concepts of value, risk & opening ourselves, and create our own sense of value through our art.

Please come and check this amazing opening event/reception out and I hope to see you all there!
