San Francisco Maker's Market 03/28/09

We had some art from the gallery (from the current Octopi Collective exhibit) at the new burgeoning Maker's Market up on the second floor open courtyard this past Saturday. It is an event that has just begun and trying to get its feet off the ground. It will be held every Saturday 1-4 pm, at 3150 18th Street @ Treat Avenue.

The weather was gorgeous - almost too gorgeous. It's still small but I expect will improve as the weather continues to get nicer and more people come to know about it.

Octopi Collective Artists Reception Photos

We had a lovely reception for the Octopi Collective exhibit on display through the end of March.

While the rain threatened all day, we had just periodic episodes of sprinkling, enough for us to pull the food table under the awning, but otherwise not too bad.

It was great to have the group of artist from Monterey come up, we sold some things, and everyone ate (particularly Margo's homemade cookies!) and drank.

You can still come see the show for a little bit longer, so stop in!

Here are some photos of some of the exhibit and from the reception.

Here is an example of a piece that has already sold from the show. It is an encaustic beeswax painting by Margo Mullen titled, "Asilomar I".
