Paulette's San Francisco Art Show Opening Aug 26, 5-7 p.m.

This is a picture of Paulette wearing sunglasses.

Paulette has been doing a residency, residing, making art at Hayes Valley Art Works in San Francisco since May of 2016.  She has new paintings that she will show at 456 Laguna St in San Francisco starting August 26, 2016.  The opening is from 5 to 7 p.m.

Our sources obtained the following promotional words about the show.

Paulette will be showing paintings of dogs, the Hayes Valley Artworks lot, and two presidents.  Also shown will be production art from the Jeffrey Vallance Interview Film, a painting of the Los Angeles skyline, a painting of a liquor store in Oakland, a painting of 22nd street in San Francisco, and her painting of a Thomas Kinkaide painting.  The paintings are a mixture of studio work and plein air work, done in oil paint.  Paulette hopes to show beauty in the things she paints, regardless of how unpleasant a subject may be.  For instance, she painted a stuffed dog that isn't really beautiful, but the paintings of the dog are beautiful, portraying it favorably like when you get the pimples taken out of your high school senior year photos.  She hopes that her paintings are lies that tell some kind of truth, like Picasso is quoted as saying except in different words.

The show is curated by Tanya Gayer and made possible by Emma Spertus, two of the Bay Areas top art people.

The title of the show is up in the air as this article goes to press on a big printing press that will print over 10 billion copies of it, but it, the title will be something like "Gemalde Plein Air y en el Estudio" which translated from German, French and Spanish means, "Paintings Inside and Outside."

Strop Demands Key to City of Oakland

Strop Oakland

Oakland band, Strop, demands that Libby Schaaf give them the key to the city or they threaten to not play again in Oakland for another year.

"Unless we get that key, we're not gonna play again in Oakland for 365 days," says Stropper, Paulette Humanbeing, while the other Stroppers nodded in agreement.

Strop claims to be the heart and soul of California's port city, Oakland, and wants the recognition they feel they deserve. 

Says the same Stropper, Paulette "loudmouth" Humanbeing, "Ok, so we're not the brains of Oakland, but so F#cking what?  A body can live without the brain, but it can't live without its heart and soul.  Look at that chicken that lived without its head."
