Seven members of the YLEM Artists Using Science and Technology
group exhibited on October 19th and 20th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
at 3140 22nd Street (at S. Van Ness), San Francisco. The site's
historic Victorian church was filled with the artists' works in
futuristic technologies and contemporary synthetic media as a
part of that weekend's San Francisco Open Studios.
The YLEM Artists who participated are: ELEANOR KENT, a fabric artist using fractals and mathematical progressions; PAT MARKOVICH, a sculptural painter now manipulating light and shadow; MYRRH, the founder of YLEM and painter in translucent acrylics on plexiglas; MIKE MOSHER showing computer figuration, prints and "social science" paintings; KIT MONROE PRAVDA, who produces poetic computer photomontages; PATRICIA TAVENNER, cited in Albright's _Art in the San Francisco Bay Area_; and MARY TEETOR, a needlework artist using tesselation patterns.
Mike Mosher participated in the show Artists Support Affirmative
Action! at La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley, October
1996. There he exhibited the 1996 multi-figure painting "Ohiyesa
and the '87s", Politec Mural Acrylics on Rufco-Wrap builders'
plastic, 5 ' x 8 '.
Ohiyesa (also known as Charles Eastman) was the only Native American in his Dartmouth College class of 1887. Though originally founded in the 1760s to educate them, there was no significant number of Native American students at the college until the 1970s.
This was Mike's first work on a Dartmouth College topic since DevilsFood Daniel.
