Comment by AB: Yet another only-in-San-Francisco extravaganza. What do you get when you combine art and drag? This. It's painting, performance, video, glitter galore, participatory activities, high camp, risque shenanigans, endless characters, commendably huge heels & hair, photography, installation, never enough make-up, and plenty more. What's the give-back? A fascinating foray into the culture. Stop on by.

Review by RWM: Beautiful work and a nice encounter with the wild even if one is only experiencing it in paintings. The connection is sublime and the artwork evocative. Nice show and gathering of folks who like to bring something back from the outdoors. Wonderful and poignant.
