Reclaiming the ‘garbage’ : Terrarium Show Opening Party 6/23 | SF CA

by Accidental Bear

Mark this on your busy pride month calendars. Feed your mind with these creative displays of recycling. What might be thought of as ‘garbage’ to some is turned into decorative treasures that all your friends with be envious us. Take home some art or just get great summer crafts ideas. Don’t worry you will have plenty of bar time this pride season, you will thank me for pointing this treat of an evening out to you. ~AB

Join RSDS (Reynolds-Sebastiani Design Services) in celebrating the opening of our terrarium installation and sale.

St Francis Fountain recently remodelled the space that used to be the kitchen that made candy for the fountain. They brought back life into the unused space by opening it up for events and to shorten the weekend brunch wait by offering more seating. The space will be available for events like birthdays, music shows, art openings, and to school functions (free of charge for schools) http://www.stfrancisfountainsf.com/

We are working together with St Francis for the Grand Opening of the space with our own art opening on Thursday, June 23d. We will be featuring terrariums made from vintage bottles we unearthed. We went digging around in old overgrown forest dump sites to reclaim the bottles and jugs. We will also be showing some pictures of the forest, as we found it, reclaiming the ‘garbage’. We were captivated by how nature takes over man’s waste.

Thursday, June 23 · 7:00pm – 10:00pm
St. Francis’ Candy Kitchen

BEarMUSMENT Exhibition Opening June 3rd | SF CA @ Magnet

by Accidental Bear

The BEarMUSEMENT art exhibition foregrounds ideas about what images are considered “beautiful” in LGBTQ culture and forwards an aesthetic vision of Bears and Chubs.

Exhibition artist Noel Ibay works in styles including graphite, electronic mediums, photo-realistic renderings, stylized iconic images, and pop-culture parodies.

Opening night, Friday June 3, the artist will unveil an HIV/STD prevention poster created by him for Magnet to use for Bear/Chub community outreach. This is highly significant, since this segment of the LGBTQ community is often ignored, not only in gay media but also is underserved in queer health outreach such as HIV/AIDS information.

The following Tuesday, June 7, a panel discussion addresses challenges and triumphs of the large-sized queer community. It will feature fat activist Marilyn Wann and Dan Taylor, editor/publisher of The Big Times. This free exhibit is co-presented by Magnet, Army of Lovers and QCC’s Healthy Communities Initiative Grant. Visit www.BEarMUSEMENT.com.

The range comprises items such as a Crombie 3/4 length coat, button shawl collar dinner jacket in herringbone and tailored trousers. It also includes casualwear pieces such as cable-knit cardigans and fleece hooded sweatshirts.

Accessories including flat caps and polka dot scarves will also be available. Retail prices start at £35 for a lightweight T-shirt to £350 for a woollen Crombie.

His aim was to create a collection with a heritage feel combined with a modern style. The collection nods to Savile Row tailoring and branding and logos are kept discreet and on the inside of garments.

by Accidental Bear

Are we on the playground in kindergarten again? “Either you go or I go” say’s some Home Depot supporters to their support of the “gay agenda.” Immature little homophobes shouldn’t you be building something and not worrying about our nuts and bolts? I suggest you do the opposite of what AFA wants you to do and give your local Home Depot and ring and tell them thank you!
