SCRAP ART show at Arc Studios and Gallery in SF SOMA district

Last Friday was the opening for the SCRAP Art show at the Arc Studios and Gallery. It had been raining most of the day but the crowd turned out! It was packed. It was tough to get photos but here are few of the opening. The exhibition was put on by I was fortunate to have had two pieces of work accepted into the show.

Friends Megumi Inouye and Dorothy Yuki with me at our opening.  My "book cake' is  on the

My daughter Elana and her friend Annakai aka were  asked
to display their terrariums made with material from SCRAP on the reception desk and the food table
at the Arc Gallery.

One of my favorite pieces by Marguerite Gilligan.

My friend Megumi's piece- repurposed bows from SCRAP items. 

The opening  ended with a fashion show by Tuan Tran.

The opening was so much fun with family and friends. Many thanks to all the great people at
I have been going to SCRAP for over twenty years. It is one of my most favorite places to shop for art supplies in the whole city! Thank you Jenny Morningstar and Shuai Chen for putting on an awesome show. I am  proud to have been a small part of it.


  1. The event was amazing and very informative! I was pleased to be there. More information and my straker translations reviews you can see in my blog.

  2. Wow, beautiful fashion event! It's not even close to what I usually do for day translations reviews. It is so boring sometimes, I wish I could run away for a fashion party.
