SO LITTLE TIME.....
-THE JUNK MAIL! SHOW-
JULY 9TH - 30TH 2010
OPENING JULY 9TH - 6:00 TO 9:00 PM
@ THE SOAP GALLERY
3180 MISSION ST. 94110
On Friday night, July 9, from 6-9pm at The Soap Gallery, 3180 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA, please join over 30 Bay Area Artists and one Mid-Western Artist in celebrating the opening of "...so many products so little time...The JUNK MAIL! Show." Sculpture, drawing, printmaking, video, artist's books, poetry, prose, collage and painting are all part of this hilarious send-up of the consumer world meets Pop Art = junk mail culture. A collection of awesomely ultra-mundane meditations on the advertising campaigns and products that are pushed on us when we're least expecting it. Co-organizers and artists Andy Vogt and Sarah Smith literally forced the 30+ participants in this show to confront, read and be inspired by rather than recycle the junk that the postal worker delivers to us on a daily basis. From the wreckage of this domestic “carpet bombing,” the artists in The JUNK MAIL! Show use ideas and imagery culled from the endless supply of direct mail circulars to create homages to the detritus of the mail slot.
