Carmen McNall, Cholita

August 20 - September 17, 2016
Wednesday - Saturday, 11am-4pm
1699 Market St, SF

FLAX hosts the SF ART SHOW, in collaboration with the Curators Project, 8/20 - 9/17. Join us to celebrate a final farewell to our long-time 1699 Market St location. We donated a large portion of the space for a group exhibition to commemorate everyone who has supported Flax over the years.
(Goodbye Market Street, hello Oakland and Fort Mason Center.) 

You are invited to experience the SF ART SHOW, featuring select galleries and curators. The exhibit showcases paintings, murals, and site-specific installations by emerging and mid-career artists.

Flyer at right created by Carmen McNall.

The Show is open within our Outlet store hours:
Flax Outlet: Wednesday - Saturday, 9:30am - 6pm
SF ART SHOW: Wednesday - Saturday, 11:00am - 4pm

We'd like to thank everyone who attended our opening reception. The attendance was awesome! And special thanks to Tommy Guerrero for bringing his musical excellence to the evening. See below for opening night photos.
