Sweatin’ to tha Oldies
New Works by Fanee
Opening December 12th, 2009 7-11pm
Gallery Three is proud to present Sweatin’ to tha Oldies by Fanee. This collection of new works uses sexual imagery to represent romantic, but still naughty mentalities of a somewhat juvenile teen. Please join us at Gallery Three for the opening reception of Sweatin’ to tha Oldies on December 12th, 2009 from 7-11pm.
Fanee’s subject matter deals with the many fundamentals of naive love, dating and “sweatin” over various infatuations. This exhibit boldly showcases Fanee’s provocative vision of female sexuality in society. She uses inner conflicts to explore the fine line between passion and delirium. Her characters take on different personas of clown-faced women, tattooed up, dressed in costume, and jeweled to the max. Shadowed by twisted song lyrics and provocative poses, her characters entrance the viewer by revealing their vulnerability.
This collection incorporates mixed media works creating a hybrid of drawing and painting on magazine paper. The premise of each piece begins with an image ripped from a kinky porn magazine. Fanee outlines her subjects with pen and pencil, adding and subtracting from the original image. She uses white oil-based markers and colored paint to add contrast and subtle pigments to the page.
A native of the Midwest, Fanee moved to New York City to begin her art education at Parsons The New School for Design. From there, she returned to her Midwest roots and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). After a six-year tenure in Chicago, she relocated to San Francisco to further her passion and her artistic career.
Sweatin’ to tha Oldies will be Fanee’s second solo exhibit at Gallery Three. Her new works are provocative, arousing and guaranteed entertainment. Please join us for the opening reception of Sweatin’ to tha Oldies by Fanee at Gallery Three on December 12th 2009, from 7-11pm. This exhibition runs through January 2nd 2010, and is open to the public.

Until September 29th you can also view Ramblin Worker’s newest pieces at Rare Device, boasting intricate stitch work and bold colors. Look out for this man on the move for Upstairs Is Where the Magic Happens opening October 10th, 2009 at Gallery Three.
In good tradition, D Young V spent the eve of his opening throwing up a collection of street characters on the block. San Francisco Youth Report brought an impressive crowd up the stairs to Gallery Three, and everyone was in good spirits. Thanks to everyone who came out in support of our beloved Tenderloin artist. Look on for more details from Saturday’s opening reception at Gallery Three: home to D Young V’s works on paper until October 3rd, 2009.

Opening Saturday, September 12th at Gallery Three
Live Forever. This is the title of D Young V’s ongoing series that narrates a history yet to be played out. Now entering its third installment with San Francisco Youth Report, David’s projection of American society is detailed through black and white images. Just as Orwell would invent a future society through written word, D Young V expresses his vision through images of refugees, militarism, and rising leaders. Watch this exclusive video for a break down of Young’s “new” San Francisco straight from the mouth of the artist.

Here we go with our second video diary from D Young V. His May 2009 solo show at Cafe Royale titled Neighborhood Watch was the second installment of his “Live Forever” series, to be continued at Gallery Three this September. This video documents the politics behind Neighborhood Watch: the fall of capitalism, public safety, and the symbolism of military vehicles.
Keep your eyes out for D Young V’s San Francisco Youth Report opening next Saturday, September 12th at Gallery Three.
