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!

Trish was a collective of drag performers in the Bay Area who moonlighted as visual artists, working to contextualize drag in the world of fine art. Founded by Cash Monet and Mama Celeste in 2017, Trish’s work spanned a variety of mediums including their seminal zine, photography, video production, print and digital collages, PSAs on sexual health, and all types of new media. Trish featured visual art works by many Bay Area nightlife staples including Hollywood Texas, Kochina Rude, Mutha Chucka, Mary Vice, Dragula’s Erika Klash, and RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Rock M Sakura and collaborated with numerous others.
