collage with Matt Gonzalez, view works by Schwitters
On Sunday, Aug 14 the Berkeley Art Museum is hosting a collage making session with SF artist and progessive politician Matt Gonzalez. The collage session is in conjunction with their Kurt Schwitters exhibition which opens August 3. Various members of the San Francisco Collage Collective (including Gallery Extrana co-founder Rob Reger & myself) will join Matt and the public in a collage making session inside the lovely BAM galleries-- it's been a while since we've had an official SF Collage Collective public gathering -- I'm excited to see what materials everyone brings to work with : ) Come find us at 2pm in Gallery B! Also on display at the Berkeley Museum is our friend Desiree Holman's AMAZING show Heterotopias which investigates our fascination with real and fictional personas in fantasy play -- her avatars make me wanna dance!
