Please join us at a Bigfoot-inspired art show featuring works from Office and supremely talented local artists Dave Eggers, Lisa Congdon, Jessica Hische, Alan Dye, Erik Marinovich, and other equally super friends. Proceeds from the art sales will benefit 826 Valencia (home of the Pirate Supply Store) and 826 Boston (home of the Bigfoot Research Center), the world's most inspiring nonprofit writing and tutoring centers for kids.
The collection includes several re-imagined Northern California tree rounds, dozens of vintage postcards with a hand-screened design, and more than 35 framed paintings. Office searched Gold Country, Reno and the Mission for amazingly awful old landscape paintings. Then painted new art over them, hoping to make them as covetable as they were in their wood-paneled family room heyday.
Who's invited: Bigfoot believers and skeptics
When: Thursday, Nov. 8, 6-8p
Where: The Bold Italic, 34 Page Street, San Francisco
Cost: Free (Donations to 826 gladly accepted)
Featuring guest artists: Ben Barry, Lisa Congdon, Brent Couchman, Dora Drimalas, Alan Dye, Dave Eggers, Brian Flynn, Jessica Hische, Erik Marinovich, Richard Perez, and Christine & Eric Strohl.
Selected works will be available for sale at visitoffice.com after the show. Proceeds go to 826 Valencia and 826 Boston.
BIG, BIG thanks to our generous sponsor The Bold Italic; to our kind supporters Magnolia Pub & Brewery and David Barrett; and to our crazy-talented guest artists. The exhibit was conceived and curated by Office.
