Opening: Tara Foley

Either in a Million Years or Until the Bitter End
Works by Tara Foley

November 3 - December 1, 2009
Opening Reception: Tuesday, November 3rd, 6-10pm

Either in a Million Years or Until the Bitter End is a collection of drawings about memory, both personal and collective. These works are depictions of important moments that blur the line between imagination and memory. How do we remember? What does an important memory look like? How does a memory change over time? For Tara Foley, these important moments have become cathedrals, castles, monuments, patterns, body parts and mountain ranges.

Tara Foley is a San Francisco-based artist who has exhibited locally and nationally. Recently she has had solo exhibitions at local galleries Fecal Face Dot Gallery and Triple Base and created murals for 111 Minna, Sycamore Alley, and New Langton Arts. She currently works as Artists in Education Program Manager at Southern Exposure.



Live music from 8 - 10pm with fiddlers Jill Kjompedahl and Hal Hughes and singer-songwriter Mason Lindahl

Mimi Moncier

Inside/Out is the second of five InterMissions that are created and curated by Mimi Moncier as part of the Adobe Books Parlor. Inside/Out will be a continuous series of performances within and around the window areas of the bookstore that will attempt to challenge our cultural notions of display, exhibition and social activity. Thematically, each will refer to the production of space as an ongoing and ever-changing activity within which we are all participating. Inside/Out specifically examines issues of public and private space.

Friday, October 16, 2009 5:00-10:00pm
Saturday, October 17, 2009 4:30-10:00pm*
