Art in the Alley - May 4, 2008, Kerouac Alley, SF

The beautifully renovated Kerouac Alley in North Beach will once again be turned into an open-air art gallery when we hold our 12th Art in the Alley event. Over 25 emerging and established artists will showcase their work in the alley named for one of North Beach’s most famous Beat icons. - art books by Jack Carter, jewelry by Colleen Maur, drawings of North Beach by Elizabeth Ashcroft, whimsical sculptures by Cherry Elliot, silk screen prints and funky dolls by Hilary Williams and evocative collage ensembles by Rebecca Peters. AlTal will serenade the crowd with Jazz throughout the afternoon.

Art in the Alley honors the irreverent spirit of North Beach by creating an opportunity for both local and regional artists to strut their stuff. Janet Clyde, manager of Vesuvio, feels it’s an ideal way to give back to the community and to celebrate this fabled neighborhood and its artistic roots.

Those wishing to get a sneak preview of work by the participating artists should stop by Vesuvio and check out the Art in the Alley Group Show, on display from April 15 - 30.
