My Statement for “Sheet”

Stories heard
from female friends
from women I’ve met
during my travels.
Stories I’ve read,
novels and news,
from everywhere.

“What Women Want” is an exploration of what women desire out of life, personally, socially, and politically. This multimedia art exhibition is linked thematically to San Diego REPertory Theatre’s presentation of “In the Next Room, or The Vibrator Play,” March 19-April 17 on the Lyceum Stage. This comedy by Sarah Ruhl, directed by Sam Woodhouse, is about the politics of desire and sexuality, and is set in the Victorian Era.

Artists: Irene Abraham, Jennifer Anne Bennett, Jocelyn Duke, Jeanne Dunn, Michele Guieu, Sally Hagy-Boyer, Misty Hawkins, Regina Herod, Daphne Hill, Prudence Horne, Terri Hughes-Oelrich, Lisa Hutton, Lori Lipsman, Kathy Miller, Amy Paul, Ginger Rosser, Therese Rossi, Anna Stump, Marcela Villaseñor, Anna Zappoli.

Citybeat COVERS Art Exhibition

“CityBeat has been showcasing local artists on our cover for years and no one has ever taken the initiative to put together an exhibition. I’m excited that Alexander Salazar Fine Art—the Energizer Bunny of the local art scene—took an interest in our covers and decided to spend the energy to put together this show. I think the breadth and depth of the San Diego art scene will finally be shown off in an awesome way, and I hope Alexander decides to make this a big annual event.”
—Kinsee Morlan, arts editor, San Diego CityBeat

The covers of CityBeat Magazine will dominate the walls of Alexander Salazar’s 5,000 sq ft Art Auction House this February for one week only. The main wine reception will take place February 24th at 6pm with opportunity for collectors to meet the artists behind the cover. Located at 1040, 7th Avenue, artists will also include a work of art to be part of the LIVE AUCTION. It will be an exciting night celebrating one of San Diego’s most prominent publications and its dedication to San Diego Artists.

CityBeat is published every Wednesday, with a weekly circulation of 50,000. The distribution area includes all of San Diego County, from the Mexican border in the South County, to Oceanside in the North County.
