Pauline's eye in selecting the works in this show was excellent. The work ranged from photos to paintings to one work that even came with its own lighting.

The show as described is as follows:

The idea of a "vessel include cups, containers, bowls and ships -- all have the ability to hold "something". Alternatively, it also has a religious connotation, i.e., "a vessel of the Lord" or someone who is infused with a divine quality. There is even a biological meaning: arteries in animals, tubes or canals in plants. This exhibit features vessels in all senses of the word!

And for those of you who may be interested, The Shadow has been informed that the ARTWorkSF show "Soft Core", which The Shadow brought to you here will be extended through September 2, 2007 at the ARTWorkSF Gallery, 49 Geary Street, #234.
