Fleet Wood // Dianne Hoffman + Maureen Shields

We invite you to join us alongside Dianne Hoffman with her mixed media assemblage sculptures and Maureen Shields with her collage work —as part of March’s SF First Thursdays: Lower Polk / TL Art Walk—on Thursday, March 7th from 6p – 10p.

Dianne Hoffman is a self taught mixed media artist with a primary focus in found objects and recycled materials mingled with collage, paint and clay. Her work conveys nostalgic stories with impactful sentiment. She was born and raised in the suburbs of Southern California and moved North to become a resident of San Francisco in 1988. She has been a full time artist of salvaged and repurposed components since 2010 with work found in collections worldwide.

San Francisco artist Maureen Shields was born and raised in Southern California. She earned a BFA in Drawing and Painting from California State University Long Beach and a MFA from New York University. She makes mixed media works on wood that combine paint, collage, handmade stickers, gold leaf, and glitter. Her printed matter and source material range from vintage LIFE magazines from the 1950s to vintage Playboy magazines from the 1970s and 80s.

We’ll have chill libations available from Pine Street Brewery and 60s French & Latin psyche on the turntables from DJ Doctor Winston O’Boogie.
