“I Will Always” – Art Opening at Nooworks Gallery
Saturday August 6th 2011 5-10 pm – 395 Valencia St. SF, CA 94103
New York based artist and Urban Inks founder Sarah Mead returns to San Francisco for her first solo show. Mead’s work ranges from illustration, to design, to silkscreen prints, with all of her work exhibiting a theme of bold graphics, which frequently reference typography and geometric forms. This exhibition “I Will Always” is the latest project by Mead, influenced by African tribal rituals and textiles it explores drawing and painting along side her traditional style, screen printing, and incorporates a new study of pattern repetition into her body of work.
“I Will Always” will be showing at Nooworks Shop beginning August 6 and running until October 6.
Nooworks will hold the opening on August 6 from 5pm-9pm, providing music, as well as kegs sponsored by Pyramid brewery.
With respect and concern to the current drought in Africa, Sarah will be fundraising with the sale of limited edition tote bags with all proceeds going directly to help drought victims.
Nooworks Shop is the product of owner Jennifer D’Angelo’s wholesale clothing line, which was created in 2004 shortly after Jen graduated California College of the Arts. Nooworks was born fortuitously when Jen made a screen printed t-shirt of with an image of her dog NooNoo. This random screen print was to Jen at the time, the beginning of her career as Nooworks founder and owner. Jen prides herself in making ethically and locally manufactured clothing with an emphasis on community involvement, as each featured artist collaborates with Jen to design a textile for the upcoming line. Currently Nooworks has collaborated with upcoming artist Sarah Mead to create textiles for the new Fall/Winter 2011 clothing line.
