Birds of a Feather 2
If your in the San Francisco area this Saturday (11/21/09), this looks like it’s going to be a good show.
Super7 is proud to present the follow up to 2007’s blockbuster show “Birds of a Feather” with the new aptly titled show “Birds of a Feather 2” featuring artwork by Dora Drimalas, Heather Amuny-Dey and Shay Ashley-Ometz. This show features three original new prints from each artist (nine in total) as well as a sampling of older, out-of-print and rare prints from each artist’s personal archive to create a whimsical and wonderful reflection on their lives.

Birds of a Feather 2’s title is taken from the popular phrase “Birds of a feather flock together”, as these three women share an important bond as friends, as well as each one having established themselves a significant role in the male driven world of design. It is a rare confluence of talent and ambition that has led each of them to become some of the most respected designers working today. Birds of a Feather 2 is their chance to share more personal work about life, love, heartbreak, happiness that feature our fair feathered friends.
Birds of a Feather 2 is comprised exclusively of limited edition, hand screenprinted, signed and numbered editions of art that are priced for the average customer. The works lend themselves perfectly to be framed (sized to fit a standard 16×20 frame) and priced at a moderate $40 per print, the show is an overt attempt to create unique items and gifts in time for the holidays, and to encourage the access and opportunity to have and give artwork for those who traditionally are not able to afford it.
Birds of a Feather2 opens at Super7 San Francisco (1628 Post St., San Francisco, Ca. (415) 409-4700) on Saturday, November 21st at 7pm, with Dora Drimalas and Heather Amuny-Dey in attendance, and on Saturday, November 28th at 6pm at Super7 Florida (720 2nd Street North, St. Petersburg, Fl. 33701, (727) 822-8685).
