Her Place Is In

Farley’s East Nonprofit of the Month: HER PLACE IS IN

Established in 2018, a Bay Area group of diverse women came together after a concert and collectively created an art platform that would soon inspire the world. HER PLACE IS IN premiered their first project, HER PLACE  IS IN: Color on July 27, 2018. After the overwhelmingly positive response, the team decided to invite the community to participate in HER PLACE IS IN:SKIN. A project centered around building community, celebrating diversity, redefining beauty, and empowering femininity. The goal of our last photoshoot, was to feature 30+ women of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities wearing absolutely no makeup and in outfits styled to match the tone of their skin and combat unhealthy beauty standards by celebrating their so-called “flaws.” They proved that beauty is no one color, size, or shape, and that true empowerment is much broader than the skin. Posing together, these women celebrated the strength that lies in community and the power that lies in unity. The premiere took place on December 8, 2018.

HER PLACE IS IN is an organization dedicated to social action through art.Focused on building community, celebrating diversity and empowering femininity, we are committed to sharing stories, advancing social education, and creating spaces for conversations that lead to real change.

HER PLACE IS IN will be throwing a private event on August 8th, RSVP list is open to the public but max capacity will be 50.

Farley’s SF Artist of the Month: Case Sandberg

I’ve always loved the look of espresso being poured over a cup of cold milk— the dark and light swirling together creating movement with liquid color. Two colors quickly become five, and then dozens before settling into a solid color. Much like precious moments in life, they only last a second before they are gone.

My work intends to capture such moments — freezing liquid color as it collides together in epoxy to turn that one moment into something that lasts a lifetime.

Farley’s SF Window Boxes: Jeanne Storck

Jeanne Storck is a writer, content strategist and collector of vintage found photos. She’s had two previous shows at Farley’s drawn from her collection. This show will be a display of photo booth photos. These fascinating mini images capture their subject’s personality as they strike a pose in the privacy of the booth — laughing, somber, sullen, sweet — all the different moods reveal themselves.
