The show, “Sip. Savor. Share! San Francisco Foodie Photography,” an art show by Femme Cartel opens on Thursday, May 9, 2013 with a reception from 6-9pm. (Yes! Eats, sips, and art will be for sale.)
“An intriguing mix of views into the foodie worlds of San Francisco, our show blends breathtaking instagram shots highlighting San Francisco’s diversity of food cultures, fine art food photography that borders on the abstract, and portrait photography of some of the most well-known Bay Area foodies and beloved cafes, bars, and restaurants,” explains co-curator Emily “Femily” Howe.
“Sip. Savor. Share! San Francisco Foodie Photography” is a dynamic mix of flavors as complex yet fitting as San Francisco’s complex and iconic food culture. It features some of the area’s top food and SF scene photographers:

While the show is a love letter to San Francisco, it also tips its hat to female artists. With a mission is to celebrate female artists in the contemporary urban art world, co-producer Christina Bohn explains, “Femme Cartel puts great talent and concept first. And, there is definitely a feminist mission driving our shows, whether you can see it reflected obviously in the show or not.”
Since their launch just two years ago, Femme Cartel has highlighted the work of over 70 female artists (and a handful of male artists). “With Femme Cartel,” says Leanne “Elrod” Rodriguez, a longtime artist with Femme Cartel, “You’ve got some courageous female masterminds always bringing together a beautiful and insanely talented group of female artists.”
Other recent Femme Cartel shows include a graffiti girl art show at an Oakland warehouse, a San Francisco gallery show on fashion illustration, an emerging urban artists show, a feminist hip hop culture art show, and a show dedicated to art about powerful independent ladies—in the buff.
