San Francisco staples Kyle Ranson and Sara Thustra will be heading East to Brookyln for a showing at Cinders Gallery on June 4, 2011. The name of the show is best of 2011, maybe ever: Shit. Free Art n Good Times. Couldn't have named any better ourselves.

Erotica // Thursday, May 12, 2011
San Francisco artist Charmaine Olivia never took an art class, didn't go to college, toyed with the idea of fleeing to Paris, and then moved to San Francisco to become a full-time artist. Olivia's paintings and illustrations capture dreamland girls, lustfully tattooed portrait style paintings and those seductive morning tangles.
