Tonight: Glamorous Art Opening Party at Cafe St. Jorge

PRETTY-HEAVYFINALFLYER

Andrea de Francisco, founder of the fabulous and transformative Cafe St. Jorge on Mission near Cortand, invites one and all to an art opening happening at the cafe tonight:

THE SHOW: PRETTY/HEAVY

PRETTY/HEAVY explores themes of weight, texture, pattern, perspective and geometry. With common interests in materials both natural and man-made ranging from crystals to carpet padding, each artist illustrates her own personal juxtaposition of form and content…negative/positive, crystalline/concrete…

PRETTY/HEAVY.

Famed guest 60’s inspired DJ TYLAWAVE will be spinning Motown, Surf Rock, Doo-wop and 60′s Soul all on 45s all night. Find her on the regular spinning at neighboring bar, El Amigo, the last Sunday of every month.

OPENING: FRIDAY, MAY 30TH // 7-9PM
SHOWING: MAY 30 – AUGUST 14
WHERE: CAFE ST. JORGE // 3438 MISSION STREET

THE ARTISTS: Valicia Byrne and Alex Steele

Valicia Byrne is a mixed media artist currently living in San Francisco. She received a BFA in Studio Art from San Francisco State University with emphasis in painting, printmaking and book arts. Byrne uses photomechanical reproduction to manipulate images of both natural and cosmic origin. Her accumulation of miscellaneous matter and application of geometric aesthetics to an array of organic textures create both balanced and chaotic compositions.

Alex Steele is a multidisciplinary artist currently living in San Francisco. She received her BFA from The San Francisco Art Institute. Steele’s work applies traditional collage methods to both paper as well as an array of hand dyed textiles. By exploring themes of construction and deconstruction, Steele creates landscapes featuring natural imagery within rigid man-made templates. Her “collages” border on minimal, but illustrate a different kind of depth.
