Nudes at City Hall
Early Friday evening at San Francisco's City Hall...
...District 5 Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi was hosting the monthly art show at his offices.
Most of the art has been pretty bad at these affairs lately, but tonight the quality went up a notch.
This month is featuring a group show of four women artists: Gail Camhi, Jacqueline Ruben, Heike Seefeldt, and Sue Vaughan.
Ms. Vaughan had my favorite work on the wall, a whole series of female nudes.
Sue was one of the campaign managers for Krissy Keefer, the Green Party warrior who ran to the left of Pelosi this last election.
They were both disappointed by their showing in the election, but in truth they and their friends did a great job, and Pelosi seems to have heard them because she's even making noises about becoming an antiwar warrior herself.
I had met Ms. Vaughan a number of times at h. Brown's Burrito Salon but she had never mentioned that she dabbled in art or the fact that she was any good at it. It was a nice surprise.
