Leslie Shows Printmaking Event Benefits SFAC Gallery

May 18, 2009


On Saturday Leslie Shows offered a well-attended printmaking demonstration at the
ON YOUR MARK fundraiser benefiting the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery‘s programming fund. It was an opportunity to see one of my favorite local artists at work
while supporting the SF arts community.

I’ve been a fan of Leslie’s since catching her stunning CCA MFA show in ’06, followed by
her SFMOMA SECA award, last year’s Bay Area Now exhibition and ongoing Jack Hanley Gallery representation.

For this project, Leslie layered digitally-printed collage elements with hand-inked plates run through an etching press to create a characteristically textured, energetic composition. The prints are issued in a limited edition of 20 copies and made available through SFAC Gallery and Electric Works where the event took place.
