AUTOBODY FINE ART : December 13 Show Press Release:
Christmas is nearly upon us which is why I am so thrilled to announce our December 13th show. Really, the show is a two-parter. During the day (between 1:00pm and 6:00pm) Autobody Fine Art will be hosting an independent designer Trunk Show and sale. All the designers are local, either San Francisco, or the EastBay. They all individually manufacture small clothing lines in ateliers they either own or share with other designers. Much of the work is "green," in focus, ie: it recycles cast-off and vintage clothing and materials in order to produce an entirely new, weareable object.
Designers and craftspeople who have already committed to the sale include:
Miss Velvet Cream: www.missvelvetcream.com
Esther Allison (hats)
Claudia Morales, Dulce Lalita: http://www.myspace.com/claudialalita
S&G Clothing Company: www.sandgclothing.com
Lucid Dawn: www.lucidawn.com
Frolick Jewelry: www.shopfrolick.com
Aiko Designs (Jewelry): www.aikojewelry.com

Ghetto Goldilocks: www.ghettogoldilocks.com

These artists are well known in San Francisco and the East Bay for their meticulous workmanship, stunning designs, eco-friendly materials and construction techniques. Autobody Fine Art is proud to bring this talent to Alameda ... After all, who doesn't want to look their best for the Holiday Season. We're all a little tired of our hard earned money going to big name stores, so come meet the people who imagine, design and fabricate their own collections. So, come enjoy a Christmas cocktail, some fat beats, courtesy of local DJ's and the opportunity to try own, and purchase, some of the coolest, avant-garde clothing in the East Bay. Take a look at the link pasted below to get a flavor of some of the clothes:
In conjunction with the Trunk Sale and Fashion show the evening of December 13th will also mark the opening of our Christmas show, a big group show that will include within it a selection from the traveling "Poor Man's Art Show," which has moved through galleries in the East Bay.
Come and see how this all goes down, - a marvelous mix of art, fashion, gourmet food and music.
The opening will be fully catered by Flying Monkey Catering of Marin, and there's always lots of wine. We're also sponsored by Trumer Pils, so beer will flow freely throughout the evening.
