Mi’Chelle Fredrick, popUp Gallery

Eleven Bay Area artists present their interpretations of the human figure exploring not only its endlessly beautiful geometry but extending their reach beyond the figure into concepts of self-image, the rhythms of daily life, and spiritual essence – who we are, as well as what we are.  This exciting collection of paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures celebrates the beauty and diversity of “everybody.” Please join the artists for the opening reception.
