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!

greetings from comic con! we're here helping our friends Emily the Strange with a gallery next to their booth -- a little calm spot to hang and see art -- someone said we were a respite in the storm of the crowds and aggressive imagery --- we agree. : )
We are featuring Emily's creator Rob Reger's personal work and his Emily inspired fine art, along with Buzz Parker's detailed illustrations, work by cut-out artist Turo Scissorhands and Reger's collaborative prints with punk photographer Jenny Lens.
Our living room set up is much cozier thanks to our friends at Boomerang for Modern, a beautiful mid-century design store in San Diego's Little Italy. Thanks Boomerang! If you're at the con, come visit us! Booth #4637
