Shalinee Kumari is having her first solo show in the US at the Frey Norris Gallery. She is from Bihar, India and paints in the Mithila style. Her interpretations of Krishna and world events are fresh and beautifully conceived.

I've been participating in a round-robin art project with members of NCWCA with the theme, "Shadowplay." This is my third piece, inspired by Judy Shintani's second piece and South African artist, William Kentridge. It's an altered book incorporating dictionary pages, old postcards from the Uffizi and a Rolling Stones song. What a pleasure to make this piece and to play back all those sexy Stones songs.

ArtSpan conducted its first Tour des Artistes for 18 art-loving viewers. They visited six studios in the Mission District and got to learn first-hand how artists work and create. The artists visited were Cynthia Tom, Jennifer Ewing, Clare Kuo, Katja Leibenath, Silvia Poloto and Liz Mamorsky. The viewers were exposed to different artists' media and styles, saw completed works as well as works in progress, listened to artists' presentatons, asked questions and enjoyed a variety of refreshments and drinks.
