Reception: 7-9 PM Friday, January 13, 2017
Sanchez Art Center / East Gallery 1220-B Linda Mar Blvd., Pacifica, California
Gallery hours: Friday, Saturday, & Sunday 1–5 pm (starting January 14, 2017)
An exhibition of handwoven and handcrafted textiles, Woven Together: Experience & Expression, will be shown in the East Gallery of the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, California, from January 13, 2017 thru February 12, 2017. Art pieces, fashion, sculpture, wearable art, weaving for the home, and fine craft made by members of the Loom and Shuttle Guild will be displayed, reflecting a wide range of techniques and skills. Items include woven scarves, shawls, bags, jackets, table runners, tapestries, baskets, carpets, and stitched textiles. Items will be available for purchase.
The Loom and Shuttle Guild, a San Francisco weaving guild founded in 1948, draws participants from all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Members come not only from textile, fine art, and fashion careers, but from a diversity of fields such as music, teaching, technology, graphic design, writing, architecture, nursing, law, science, and more. Many artists have been weaving for decades, and many exhibit their work in local and national exhibits. New members continue to join the guild and expand their knowledge about the art and craft of weaving.
The guild’s purpose is to promote high standards of weaving, to stimulate public interest and appreciation in handweaving and fiber art, and to offer educational opportunities. Demonstrations of weaving, spinning, and braiding will be scheduled periodically throughout the exhibit, and posted on the Loom and Shuttle website.
Open to all, this free exhibit highlights the ancient craft of handweaving still practiced today. There is ample free parking and the Sanchez Art Center is wheelchair accessible.

Enamored with Place: As Woman + As Architect is Wendy Bertrand’s thought-provoking memoir. A licensed architect, Bertrand received her degree from UC Berkeley in 1972, a time when only 3 percent of architects were female. Her book is a prime example of “social history,” chronicling the experiences of a working single mother on a mission to thrive in her chosen field—both personally and professionally—despite all odds. It is especially interesting because of Bertrand’s acute awareness of social impact in building design, and her lifelong commitment to social equity within her profession. www.thegreenarcade.com

The Art, Music and Recreation Center of the San Francisco Public Library presents:
San Francisco architect and author Wendy Bertrand will read from her newly published memoir, Enamored With Place: As Woman + As Architect, (Eye On Place Press, 2012), and will discuss the importance of women’s voices in documenting social history.
Her memoir chronicles her experiences as a single mother on a mission to thrive, both personally and professionally. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a Bachelor of Architecture (1971) and a Master of Architecture (1972), after study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in France. Bertrand graduated at a time when only 3% of registered architects in the U.S. were female. She practiced architecture mainly with the U.S. Navy. She is a founding member of the Organization of Women Architects and Design Professionals. Her feminist values and concern for social justice have informed her design and management decisions, as well as her vision for the future of the profession.
