sidewalk sale August promoThis Saturday, come visit the Swankety Swank Sidewalk Sale to see work by amazing local independent artists!  Be at 289 Divisadero at 11 o’clock am until 4 pm to immerse yourself in handcrafted art, fashion and more!

What kind of goodies can you expect?  Allow me to introduce you to three of the best designers in San Francisco:

Artwork by Maria ZhalninaMaria Zhalnina has worked as an art director, designer and illustrator.  She has art directed six magazines and created designs for other publications.  Her illustrations have been used in books, magazines, and calendars, and she also works in fine arts in painting, graphics and installations.

Chechnja by Maria ZhalninaThe above sculpture is titled “Chechnya” and is from Zhalnina’s “Maps of the World” series.Tif of Wayward Shifties Tiff Rojas of Wayward Shiftys makes magical clothes and accessories for everyday wear!  Known for her quirky sense of style and a penchant for fun that rivals the faeries, Tiff’s designs are sure to enchant you!  Try on one of her pointed hats or a frilly skirt!
Wayward ShiftiesTiff models the coat she made for her Wayward Shifties clothing label.  Tiff’s clothes are all one of a kind (and I mean that in the most literal and figurative senses), just the way we like it at Swankety Swank!
Artwork by Cara TuckfeltArtist Cara Tuckfelt works in printmaking, bookbinding, sculpture, and painting!  She says “Printmaking helps me find my voice as an artist through mixing varied techniques and experimentation often to the point of aesthetic destruction…Aesthetically, my work is earthy, dark, and visually complicated, owing to the many trials, errors and countless hours spent on each piece.”
Cara Tuckfelt bookAlso a bookbinder, Cara reveals, “Each book that I complete is an exploration and manifestation of my own technical abilities. The books that I choose to bind reflect their respective cultures and trace the evolution of bookbinding.”

After you meet these artists (and others!) whose goods will be along the sidewalk, be sure to come indoors to check out the new 2 women show, Perth: Something Hidden, showcasing the hauntingly beautiful paintings by Emily Lounsbury and the evocative pictorial compositions of Eartha L. Goodwin! We also have new clothing by DAS, gibbous and Zunique!
