Frida Kahlo’s personal photos…


Did you know Frida Kahlo had a personal stash of about 6,500 photos?

Another good tidbit: Frida also came from a line of photographers — her father and her grandfather were both professional photographers.

Fabric8 gallery is pleased to present Wayward Wanderings, a solo show featuring new paintings by artist David Garvey.

In his first-ever solo show, former medical illustrator Garvey uses his highly-detailed technique to bring his paintings to life. His exhibition depicts scenes of a wayward reality, from whimsical creatures and scenarios to dreamscapes and poignant visual metaphors.

David Garvey was born in New York City in 1970 and attended Pratt Institute, from where he graduated with a BFA in 1994. He has had an eclectic career in the arts, having done illustration work for websites, publications, pharmaceutical giants, and entertainment conglomerates. His paintings and drawings are on display in restaurants, hotels, and casinos throughout the country. He currently lives and works in San Francisco.

Wayward Wanderings will be on exhibit from April 6 through May 7, 2012 at fabric8, 3318 22nd Street, San Francisco, and open 7 days a week. The opening reception will be held on Friday, April 6, from 6pm-9pm.

We’re digging artist Amy Guidry’s “In Our Veins” body of work…

Follow her on Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Amy-Guidry/51953219932 

"In Our Veins" explores the connections between all life forms and the cycle of life. Through a psychological, and sometimes visceral, approach, this series investigates our relationships to each other and to the natural world, as well as our role in the life cycle. Concepts such as life and death, survival and exploitation, and the interdependence and destruction of living and nonliving organisms are illustrated throughout. Using imagery derived from dreams and free association, “In Our Veins” demonstrates these ideas in a surreal, psychologically-charged narrative.
