Back to art chick mode...so...my show is so close now, and I am more excited than ever. I thought I would share my press release for the show:
Gallery Three Presents
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 6th 2010, from 7-11pm
Gallery Three is proud to present Innocence Perceived - new works by artist Jessica ‘Tink’ Whiteside. This exhibition will feature new acrylic and mixed media paintings, sculptures, a video installation piece, and a few opening night surprises.
Innocence Perceived investigates a culture clash which began in America in the 1950's - revolving around American sexual identity, media influence on society, and a divide between traditional and progressive values. While mainstream media painted a picture of domesticated female roles and polite innocence, an alternative movement was gaining steam. The show peeks behind the veil of innocence perpetuated in mid-century advertising and propaganda.
About the artist: Jessica's vivid paintings and unique feminine style have put her in the spotlight in the Neo-Burlesque art scene. Over the past few years, her art has been exhibited in a growing number of solo and group shows on the West Coast. In addition she has curated several exhibitions, ran the San Francisco chapter of Dr. Sketchy's workshop, and made many appearances on stage as a bedazzled burlesque performer.
About Gallery Three: Gallery Three was founded in 2007 by Justin Giarla, as an experimental space to show upcoming artists. Already being the owner of two galleries in San Francisco, The Shooting Gallery and White Walls Gallery, Giarla opened Gallery Three with the intention of expanding on the genres of Urban and Outsider Art. Gallery Three is located upstairs at White Walls Gallery on Larkin Street, and is open Tuesday - Saturday, 12 noon – 7 pm.
