“Figuring Parts” Art Opening for Serge Gay Jr.

We are so excited to have the work of Serge Gay Jr at Strut!

For the month of November we are exhibiting the paintings of Serge Gay Jr. an incredibly talented artist. This will be an art opening that you will not want to miss.

The Art Opening starts at 8 PM sharp, and will go till 10 PM. Bring your friends, are all welcome! The Art program at Strut was founded the same year Magnet began back in 2003 and we’ve been exhibiting the work of a different queer artist each month ever since!

About the Artist
Serge Gay Jr. is a Grammy nominated Creative Director and Art Director. Also a Painter, Illustrator, Graphic Designer, currently based out of San Francisco, California. His art infuses inspiration from living in cities from coast to coast. Influence in his work can be found from the culture sociology of his homeland of Haiti, New York, Miami, Detroit and San Francisco. Serge has taken residence in San Francisco where he continues to explore and share his talent with the world through career oriented and non-profit freelance projects.

Artist Statement
My art is very figurative, representing forms that are recognizably derived from life. I love the human forms and the physical structure of a person’s bodily shape, but most of all are head studies of the face that intercept and hold on to me and a great way to study everything to form and color. Especially the face as it expresses emotion of one’s circumstances, mood or relationship with others or to a condition or an environment. My work talks about social facts in all cultures of a society affect the behavior or attitudes of an individual member of that society. However, I also talk about how we behave within a group as a whole as members in that society, and in the world. Style is something I never position in my head, because it is so confining and restricted to the fact that things can go in or out of style. People say that I may have a style, but I am always finding ways to reinvent myself the way I think, and I am still learning and will continue to learn. A painter is who I am. I started painting at the young age of twelve, when experimenting with paint in my sketchbook was carried on extensively. Painting in layers keeps me opened and interested. My work shows layers and strokes to predict what a person, place, or thing should look like from the creator’s mind to reality. I frequently use acrylic paint because it’s a very fast drying medium that allows me to keep my stroke marks as I’m working.

Strut Book Club Reads: “Calypso” by David Sedaris

PLEASE NOTE: Hi everyone, we’ve had to move the date of the October book club meeting to November 4th, sorry for the inconvenience. If any of you have any questions please feel free to email Baruch, the community events manager at bporrashernandez@sfaf.org

Lets talk queer lit! Join us for our October book club meeting!

Join us November 4th at 7:30 PM on the second floor of Strut for some wine, little snacks and great conversations about gay/queer literature. Please make sure to read the entire book beforehand and come ready to discuss your thoughts.
Don’t forget, folks: we get a discount at Dog Eared Books in the Castro! Support local bookstores!

About the book
If you’ve ever laughed your way through David Sedaris‘s cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you’re getting with Calypso. You’d be wrong. When he buys a beach house on the Carolina coast, Sedaris envisions long, relaxing vacations spent playing board games and lounging in the sun with those he loves most. And life at the Sea Section, as he names the vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: it’s impossible to take a vacation from yourself.
This is beach reading for people who detest beaches, required reading for those who loathe small talk and love a good tumor joke. Calypso is simultaneously Sedaris’s darkest and warmest book yet–and it just might be his very best.

“Entre Las Fibras Culturales.” Art Opening for Jose Villalobos

Come Celebrate Queer Art With Us!

We are so excited to have the work of Jose Villalobos at Strut! For the month of October we are exhibiting “Entre Las Fibras Culturales” (Between Cultural Fibres) a collection of art from Jose Villalobos, his art is coming here all the way from Texas, and we can’t wait.
The Art Opening starts at 8 PM sharp, and will go till 10 PM. Bring your friends, are all welcome!
The Art program at Strut was founded the same year Magnet began its hard work of serving the gay community 16 years ago. Each month we exhibit the work of a queer visual artist, and cannot wait for you all to join us for the Art Opening in October!

Artist Statement
Jose Villalobos juxtaposes distress with a feeling of comfort deriving from patriarchal and religious social structures which marginalize gay identity. Using found objects, he manipulates material through the context of self- identity as he examines gender roles within family culture . He demonstrates that dismantling traditional modes of masculine identity center an interstitial space where materiality softens the virility. In his work Villalobos protests the toxicity of machismo though the use of objects, specifically within the norteño culture, that carry a history by deconstructing and altering them. Although new forms are created he demonstrates the battle between the acceptance being a maricón and assimilating to the cultural expectations.

About the Artist
Born to a traditional conservative family, Villalobos was born and raised on the U.S./ Mexico border in El Paso, TX and Cd. Juárez MX. Villalobos received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2016. He was also awarded the Artist Lab Fellowship Grant that same year for his work De La Misma Piel at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center. Since then he has been awarded the Joan Mitchell Foundation Paintors and Sculptors Grant. Villalobos has exhibited and performed at Mexic-Arte Museum, El Paso Museum of Art, and El Museo de Arte de Ciudad Juárez, and recently at the McNay Art Museum. His work has been featured in national and regional publications including Mitú, Huffington Post, Remezcla, Out in SA Magazine and Texas Observer Magazine. Since 2015, he has been co-director and resident artist at Clamp Light Artist Studios and Gallery.
