The Mission- Balmy Alley, San Francisco.

Our Art Junket mural expert, Kaitlin Strange, guided us through the history, process, and techniques used in creating the Mission’s famous artworks.  Katie, an intern for Precita Eyes, was one of the artists who painted some of the murals in San Francisco. Katie wrote her Master thesis on the murals of San Francisco.   She has an intimate understanding of San Francisco murals and how they are created.

Encourage by two years of working with the Art Junket, I have screwed on my courage and decided to show my work out there in the streets.

No, really! The streets of Old Town Pittsburg.

I applied to and was invited to show my work at Art Trax in Pittsburg, California.

I will be showing 13 of my pieces.

This Thursday.  From 5 pm to 8.

Please come and see!  Erin and Katie are coming.  Join us for beer and pizza after to E.J. Phair, the local brewery for a beer on tap and the best pizza in Northern California!
