YO! What Happened to Peace?

(Click image to enlarge)

This was forwarded to me by Art Hazelwood (link below).
This internationally traveling show of pro-peace prints comes to San Francisco with a bevy of screen printers making free prints for all. If you're in the area this is a MUST SEE:
After a great event at Lava in Stockholm, Sweden (pictures on YO! PEACE), Yo! What Happened to Peace? is back in the U.S.A. and our first stop of 2008 will be at the Jack Hanley Gallery in San Francisco.

Yo! artist Gee Vaucher is currently showing her "Introspective" at Jack Hanley, and Yo! will be participating in the closing events of the show. On January 17th, 18th and 19th, a portion of the Yo! show will be up alongside Vaucher's prints, collages, drawings and paintings. We have also invited California Yo! artists to come and join us for a live screen printing session:

January 19th, 6-10pm

Gee Vaucher,
Winston Smith,
Eric Drooker,
Favianna Rodriguez,
Karen Fiorito,
Art Hazelwood,
Kelly Maxxx,
Mear One,
Doug Minkler,
Chris Shaw,
Jesus Barraza,
Kevin E. Taylor and
Adam Smith

Each live screenprinting will include work from the artists in attendance that will be printed as a street poster and given away to all guests of the show. A selection of Yo! exhibition prints and the Yo! What Happened to Peace?book will also be available.

In addition, on January 19th, Penny Rimbaud (Crass, Last Amendment) will perform his spoken word/poetry with the musical accompaniment of Louise Elliott (Jazzhearts) in the gallery.

Please join us and our friends from across the pond to promote a more peaceful 2008!
