The machine art community in the Bay Area is one of the most vibrant scenes in the world. We’ve benefited enormously from our talented friends and colleagues in the area. Now it’s time to give back: we will be appearing on two consecutive nights at the SomArts gallery, to benefit two very worthy causes. Here’s the scoop:
Who: Those mavens of lipstick and accelerants, The Flaming Lotus Girls
What: A Gallery Show Fundraiser for the FLG’s!
When: Friday, November 30th, 2007, 7pm-1am
Where: Somarts Gallery 934 Brannan Street, San Francisco
