New Gallery Exhibit “American Goddess” and book signing by Tammy Trejo with reception is Sunday October 4th at 12:30 – PM. The American Goddess is a new book of Goddess portraits by fine art photographer and Moon Mother Tammy Trejo. Many of these portraits will be exhibited in the ANEW Gallery during October.

American Goddess embodies all cultural beliefs of the divine feminine. Our Grandmothers hail from all cultures. Some Native American; others immigrated from Africa, Europe, China, India and all corners of the world. They have handed down their matriarchal culture, their knowledge of herbal medicine, song, dance, and ritual.  They were deeply connected to Mother Earth, the moon, the seasons, and animals. The exhibit will be shown for the month of October.

Gallery in Transition

A Woman’s Eye Gallery, a coop of 5 artist, is no longer exhibiting at 678 Portola Drive.  After 8 years and a wonderful journey filled with art, music, poetry and community the artists have chosen to continue as a group in our online format.  PLEASE view our work in the portfolios on this site.

In the meantime you will find the following available on weekends:

AUGUST: Gary Floyd’s Art show Title: Uncle Gary loves the Goddess. In the Gallery

Gary - Budah“Art is funny. We all have it within us.  Good or not that good is all in the eye of the beholder. To the creator it’s our children. We love it. It comes from us and goes into our…canvas or voice or paper with poems and doodling. It’s our art.

My past is all on paper in words or songs or paints. From punk rock to soft rock to painting and other things that are all my art. Hey…you have yours too.  What is it?
I dedicate this to the Goddess…you tell me Her name.  I call Her Kali, and Durga, and Sarada. A million names is not enough.   I also call Her Janet Maria Floyd Garcia…my Mother…my Mama.

Now I’m seeing age and I’m Uncle to some and to myself even…so enjoy as you can I love Her and Her billion names! I love the Goddess….Mama’s boy that I am.

Your loving friend and brother…”   -Gary Floyd.

ALSO if you didn’t get a chance to see the Hola! Cuba exhibit most of it is now hanging in the main gallery. FYI Pastor is working at redeveloping a new gallery…stay tuned for further details after the space is renovated.

Hola! Cuba – July 4 – 26 – faces and places.

T  Cigar Smoker 01 copyHola! Cuba: faces and places of the countryside, towns and cities of Cuba will be presented by three San Francisco photographers:  Stacy Boorn, Alice Heimsoth and Chris Kibre.

July 4-26 at A Woman’s Eye Gallery.  

At once lively and timeworn, dignified and dilapidated, Cuba is a country of contradictions.  We invite you to enter into the magic of Cuba through the very diverse perspectives of three women photographers.

Trapped in a time warp and reeling from an economic embargo that has grated for more than half a century, this is a country where you can wave goodbye to Western certainties and experience the unexpected.  Classic American cars, musicians and young National Ballet students, cobble stone streets, fog laden valleys, tobacco fields, and old Havana are among the colorful and engaging subjects of the exhibit “Hola! Cuba”.

An artist reception will be held Saturday and Sunday July 11-12th from noon to 5:00 PM.  This wonderful party will coincide with the AWE Gallery Finale Party.  After eight years A Woman’s Eye Gallery is closing its doors, thanking its patrons and welcoming first time visitors with refreshing sparkling drinks, edibles and new work in both the AWE Gallery and the AWE Annex.

000 H Melecon 002aCuban cigars will be among the door prizes and surprises.

On the final day of the show and the AWE Gallery, July 26, there will be a grand party including poetry, music, Cuban eats and drinks and notable sales!
