"Tattarrattat" is a two-part exhibition of new work by Bay Area artist Brynda Glazier. One half of the show will include a series of “book paintings,” where the artist adjusts the context of the book by simplifying the original covers to reveal humorous and subliminal information. The other part of the show debuts Glazier’s latest iterations in ceramic sculpture, and also includes a small installation featuring Dina Blazer*. On view: December 1-15. Reception: Friday, December 12; 7-9pm. ——-- *Dina Blazer: Pseudonym for the ongoing collaboration between David Bayus and Brynda Glazier. ——-- Brynda Glazier is a visual artist and writer who lives, works, and teaches in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2010, Glazier received her MFA and the Dennis Patrick Gallagher Award for Excellence in Ceramic Sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute.

Her art practice, though rooted in sculpture, ranges from oil painting, drawing, collage, photography, mixed media installation, film to most recently performance, where she acted in D.L.

Voz Sin Tinta - Poetry Reading Series second Thursday of every month @ 6:30pm
The event is FREE and everyone is welcome to witness art as energy. Each reading will be curated with no foreknowledge of how any one performance will unfold. Like ink blots spread on the page in unexpected ways, weʼll make somethings out of nothings, imprint the air with our voices, inhale interruptions, and crosshatch separate lines.
Voz Sin Tinta is Curated by Marguerite Muñoz
Sponsored by San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguía and Alley Cat Books
