The public is invited to celebrate popUp Gallery’s second anniversary at the opening reception for their new exhibition of words and pictures by 11 Bay Area artists whose imagery is infused with stories.
The show titled In Other Words tells stories about the artists’ personal journeys and memories through private musings, poetry and prose and fragments of familiar novels.
