About the show and museum:
 
With this new group exhi­bi­tion at Grant’s Tomb Gallery we cel­e­brate the launch of The Col­lage Museum of San Fran­cisco.  Our vision with this new endeavor is to show­case local, national and inter­na­tional artists who work in the medium of col­lage, photo-montage, assem­blage and related disciplines.
 
There is a long and col­or­ful 200 year his­tory of artists and cre­ative indi­vid­u­als work­ing in this field from the early 19th cen­tury and through­out the 20th cen­tury as well as an explo­sion of collage-based artistry in these first decades of the 21st century.
 
The Col­lage Museum of San Fran­cisco will serve to spot­light these artists’ works and to offer a resource for the artis­tic com­mu­nity that may let us explore the lim­it­less visions of cre­ative imag­i­na­tion and encour­age and expand the Art of Collage.

 

About the Artists:

 

René Apal­lec

Broken Face

The works of the late René Apal­lec will be dis­played for the first time in the United States.  Mys­te­ri­ous and obscure, his com­po­si­tions call out to us from a long van­ished world that has since been swept away by the tumul­tuous era of the Great War.  Come and explore this rare glimpse into the mind of a lost and for­got­ten artis­tic genius.

Peter Lewis

Hats off to Londonium

Peter Lewis has been cre­at­ing his tech­ni­color dream­scapes for sev­eral years from his fabled Pacific “Island King­dom” (New Zealand).  His aston­ish­ing com­po­si­tions are like a psy­che­delic bar­ber mir­ror that expands end­lessly into infin­ity.  Buckle up for this wild ride and pre­pare to revel in his unique vision.

____________________________________________________________________________________

Francesca Berrini

Run_from_JesusWW

Francesca Berrini is a skilled and accom­plished artist who’s work resem­bles a head-on col­li­sion between for­lorn bible sto­ries and the slightly off-kilter world of gram­mar school text books.  Dinosaurs frolic with beloved bib­li­cal per­son­ages.  Enor­mous insects covert with Dick and Jane.  Pro­to­zoa are soothed and cod­dled by famous his­tor­i­cal char­ac­ters.  Inspired (if slightly twisted) fun for the whole family.

Win­ston Smith

The Gospel According to Accordians

Win­ston Smith’s so-called “art” has defaced the cov­ers of count­less low-life punk bands from Dead Kennedys to D.O.A. to Green Day.  Through­out the last three and a half decades Win­ston has pur­sued a sin­gu­lar vision of artis­tic chaos and sub­lime imagery.  His com­po­si­tions range from the elu­sive to the stark.  View at your own risk.

Erik Chipchase — Mer­ce­nary Graphics

Screen Shot 2013-11-13 at 12.16.50 PM

From our pre­mier show to this new exhi­bi­tion our spe­cial guest artist Erik Chipchase has been respon­si­ble for a num­ber of iconic posters for events at Grant’s Tomb.  Erik’s clas­sic graphic style is a unique blend of Pro­le­tar­ian Deco and Retro-Chic.

His con­tri­bu­tions for the launch of the Col­lage Museum of San Fran­cisco are wel­comed and appre­ci­ated.  Come cel­e­brate the dawn­ing of a new error!

Casey Lewis

Casey Lewis has been work­ing with sev­eral art medi­ums for the past 35 years from stained glass to his true pas­sion, col­lage. With a heavy Dada influ­ence Casey has incor­po­rated fluid shapes and bold col­ors into his work. A true trip through abstract Jazz put to paper.

About the Post­card Sub­scrip­tion Program.

4x6 postcard-size orig­i­nals by mail.

Here’s how it works.

 

One-time order:

You can order a sin­gu­lar orig­i­nal col­lage post­card for $150 (plus tax & ship­ping). Win­ston will cre­ate your card and ship it to you within 2 weeks*.  We will also post it to Winston’s site with your name (unless you wish to remain anonymous).

Sub­scrip­tion:

Pur­chase an annual sub­scrip­tion to the Post­card Sub­scrip­tion Pro­gram and receive 13 cards (1 per month plus 1 bonus card) for $1500 total (plus tax & ship­ping).  That works out to $125 per card — not includ­ing the bonus card.  In other words, with the annual sub­scrip­tion, you get 3 free card originals.

With a sub­scrip­tion, you are very likely to receive a per­son­al­ized let­ter of ardent grat­i­tude and maybe some other cool stuff from Winston’s stu­dio archives.

"No Glare.  Nowashout." © Winston Smith 2013    Trout-Revenge.2013Blind Box.  Please note this is a “blind-box” style sub­scrip­tion.  Other than the for­mat, you will have no idea what you will get.  The only guar­an­tees are that it will be a 4“x6” post­card and it will be orig­i­nal Win­ston Smith art.  The two exam­ples on the left are of past post­cards.  Win­ston will hand-write the title and year on the back and sign it.

 

You will also receive a cer­tifi­cate of authen­ti­ca­tion. We will ship your art prop­erly wrapped (not mailed as a postcard) .
