I invite you to attend a celebration being held on Saturday, May 5th, from 6 to 10 p.m., at the Eric Quezada Center for Culture and Politics, which will include a live and silent auction.  Three of my drawings, including the above, will be auctioned.  You can view a second drawing, “Stanyan and Haight,” at the November 21, 2011 posting.  “Seamstress” was exhibited at The Legacy of the Triangle / Protecting Workers Today exhibition, City College of San Francisco Mission Campus and ILWU Local 34 Hall, February 22—March 9 and March 25 and 26, 2011, respectively

The gala will be at 518 Valencia Street, with a $25 admission fee.  The event benefits the San Francisco Living Wage Coalition and Las Hormigas in Cuidad Juarez.  For more information, contact the San Francisco Living Wage Coalition at (415) 863-1225, sflivingwage@riseup.net, http://www.livingwage-sf.org.
