From "Night and the City," 2011
Pin-Up Show at Dickerman Prints: For one night only, Dickerman Prints hosts an audience participatory photo show. Those who attend are encouraged to bring their favorite prints and pin them the wall. 50% of sales will benefit the SF non-profit "Sixth Street Photography Workshop" which brings photography to the residents of SF's hotels and shelters on the Sixth Street corridor. The other 50% of sales will go to the photographer.
How it works: Bring a favorite print (or prints under 16"x20"), and Dickerman will provide the magnetic pins for you to hang them with. Price your photo(s) accordingly. Browse others' works on display while enjoying a complimentary glass of wine or a cold beer and mingle with local photographers. Buy a print from another photographer, if you wish. Your money will help to support "6th St Photography Workshop" which brings the art of photography to the homeless and transient residents living in the 6th St corridor.
Have a great evening socializing with other Bay Area photographers and helping to support a wonderful local organization! Plus, maybe you'll sell a print or two!
There is no cost to participate, and all are welcome.
Viewers will also choose a photo to win a "Viewer's Choice" printing package prize worth $200 redeemable at Dickerman Prints. RSVP at Facebook. One night only Friday, Sept 26th (6 - 9 p.m.) 1141 Howard St.
