Mission Comics and Art is pleased to announce “VS: A Show of Opposites”, curated by Daisy Church. The show will feature new art and illustrations from over 18 different San Francisco and Los Angeles area artists. The theme of the show is "versus," and features artwork exploring the ideas of contrasts and opposites.

The opening reception will be held at Mission Comics and Art on Saturday, February 4th from 7-10 pm. Hor d'oeuvres and complimentary drinks will be served (wine will be available to our 21+ guests). The exhibition will be on display through March 3, 2012 and is free and open to the public.

Mission Comics is a fantastic retail and gallery space run by SF local Leef Smith, who combined a comic book shop with an art gallery in a fresh, exciting way while drawing on the unique strengths of the Mission District. The gallery and retail space also helps facilitate a greater cross-pollution between the worlds of fine art and commercially produced sequential art. Hours of operation are Tuesday thru Sunday, 12pm-8pm, or anytime online at www.missioncomicsandart.com.

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 4th, 2012 7-10 PM,

Very nice mermaids! Nice to see a different kinda style on characters you're fab at! Very elegant and feminine. You inspired me to do some of my own too but they're not quite as elegant as yours! Good luck with the show :D

It was nice meeting you at the show! I loved talking about Rumiko Takahashi's "Mermaid's Scar" and I loved your take on Mermaids. Their fish parts remind me of Koi from an asian Koi pond. I love this take as it's very different than the typical mermaids seen in most fiction.
