March 30 – May 17, 2008
Reception: March 30, 2008, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Clare Rojas and Barry McGee have long been associated with the “Mission School”, a loose collection of artists inspired by the culture of the street, originally based in the Mission District of San Francisco. Their works are often shown clustered together, mixing handcrafted paintings with scraps scavenged from the street with photographs and other artwork found at thrift stores. For The Big Sad exhibition, the artists will be including hand-painted work on banjos and surfboards.
