Below the Blue and Briny Sea
If you're around in the Bay Area tonight, definitely make a point of stopping by Periscope Cellars in Emeryville for the opening of Dana Robson's new solo show, 'Below the Blue and Briny Sea.'
This new work combines vintage maps and nautical charts with hand-stitched sea creatures and vegetation. The effect is really striking in person, and if you can't make the show tonight, do try to stop by the tasting room at Periscope sometime in September to see the show!
You can find more information about Periscope and the gallery at their website. Periscope is Emeryville's only winery, located in a former World War II submarine repair warehouse. This rustic and historic setting is the perfect compliment and contrast to Dana's charming artwork.
