In honor of Women’s History Month, The Border Collective, a group of Mexican female artists and makers will share their beautiful work in San Francisco.
There will be fun sips, snacks, incredible art and a live performance by Latin Pop Duo IndiviDúo, a cross-continental collaboration between San Francisco-born songstress Tiffany Joy and Colombian songsmith Maqui Reyes.
The Border collective was created by two dedicated Latin-American artists as a way to exhibit art the way they know best: through diversity in people, art and community.
A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to a cause that they really care about, La Casa de Las Madres.
On Friday, March 8, 2019. It’s free! At the Consulate General of Mexico in San Francisco, CA, from 5:30-9 p.m.!

SF art exhibition by Antony Holdsworth and Beryl Landau
Anthony Holdsworth features the start of a new series entitled “Day and Night in the Mission”. Using a LED lamp attached to his easel, he documents locations as they transition into night.
The Mission District opens a window on Latin America while simultaneously enriching the culture of San Francisco. He works on site to channel the unique energy of this community and also to bear witness to the changes that are being forced on it by gentrification.
The exhibition includes works El Farolito by Day and Night, by Anthony Holdsworth, oil/panel, and Rise and Shine, by Beryl Landau.
Beryl Landau calls her work “symbolic landscape”. The acrylic paintings in this show depict geographical locations but evoke inner feelings. Each image draws the viewer into a particular space and mood. Landau’s clear colors range from high contrasts to subtle gradations.
Images of changing San Francisco are prevalent in her recent work. The paintings often convey the juxtaposition of nature and the modern world.
Alley Cat Gallery, 3036 24th Street, San Francisco. Exhibition from March 2 to 31
