In the Bay Area? Come see Jos’s art show!

Jos Truitt piece from Awash in BodiesYou may have noticed that Jos’s byline has been missing from the blog recently. That’s because she’s been hard at work–and we’re so excited that soon we can see the fruits of her labor.

Jos’s mixed media prints are appearing, alongside paintings by Colette Standish, in “Awash in Bodies” at San Francisco’s Center for Sex and Culture. Inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Little Mermaid,” Jos’s work features severed and stitched legs and fishtails and explores “moments of variable transformations.” Of her own work, which looks beautiful as well, Standish says, “This is all about sex.” Yes, please!

The opening reception is this Friday and the show runs through January 27th. I can’t make it this weekend, but I’ll be at the artists’ talk on January 4th, so stop by and say “hi!”
