Sweatin’ to tha Oldies

New Works by Fanee

Gallery Three is proud to present Sweatin’ to tha Oldies by Fanee. This collection of new works uses sexual imagery to represent romantic, but still naughty mentalities of a somewhat juvenile teen.

This exhibit boldly showcases Fanee’s provocative vision of female sexuality in society. This collection incorporates mixed media works creating a hybrid of drawing and painting on magazine paper. The premise of each piece begins with an image ripped from a kinky porn magazine.

Without further ado, your San Francisco fashion & art itinerary:

WERKSTATTE First Thursdays featuring Bay Area artists Ian Ross (he likes to paint live!) & Steve Rotman with L.A. design collective Two Rabbit Studios and la musica de [MySpace warning] DJ Diego Rockwell.

Your itinerary, madames et monsieurs.

TONIGHT - THURSDAY - JEUDI - GIOVEDI - 木曜日- DONNERSTAG

The third installment of the [PDF warning] DiSH on FASHION happens tonight with breakout San Francisco designer KITTINHAWK. The dinner and runway show is best viewed in the dining room, so call up XYZ and see if you can sneak in a reservation. I highly recommend the day boat scallops, but all the delicacies at XYZ are delish. If you can’t get a rez, come down to the lounge anyway (you can order some things off the menu if you’re hungry) and still enjoy the show!

&

Harputs Union is one of the more unique boutiques in the City. We reviewed them a couple of weeks ago right here. I particular love their offer of dead stock tweeds, but there is something for every boy or girl with discerning taste here. Stop by the Harputs Launch and congratulate them on their new space!

FRIDAY - VRIJDAG - VENDREDI - FREITAG - Παρασκευή - VENERDI

Witness the best hip-hop dancers in the world. Period. Watch carefully, too, as you’ll undoubtedly pick up a move or two to  San Francisco Hip-Hop Dancefest.

Thread is back. At 1 and 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, make sure to peep the runway shows. This year they’ve got a Style Lounge and a Big Photo Booth, as well as four Art Lounges and Galleries, including design-your-own type workshops.

Ladies, you already have an LBD, why not wear it out to dance the night away at Yoshi’s Little Black Dress Party. If you do, your entrance is free. Men are ten bucks.

&

It’s here. It’s fierce. It’s the battle of the decade. Style Wars! Come down to Mezzanine to watch local designers literally compete against each other and the clock to come up with the best runway look for a show that immediately follows. Hilarity and drama promise to ensue.

Have fun. Be good.
