altered states, dreamscapes and underworlds: new works by ursula xanthe young

We are pleased to present Altered States, Dreamscapes and Underworlds, a solo show featuring new works by Ursula Xanthe Young.

In the first solo exhibition at the new fabric8 Galleries, Young explores themes of other worldliness, altered states of consciousness and the dream sequence while simultaneously expanding her own artistic boundaries via different techniques of color, texture, and medium.

Using her recognizable urban starlets as the subjects of the visual stories, this collection of new works focuses on the natural urge of the human psyche to seek other dimensions -- both natural and forced -- in search of answers to the greater existential questions of the human experience.

Altered States, Dreamscapes and Underworlds will be on exhibit from September 28 through November 3 at fabric8 Galleries, 3318 22nd Street, San Francisco, and open 7 days a week.

The opening reception for Altered States, Dreamscapes and Underworlds will be held on Friday, October 9, from 7-11PM.

Ursula X Young will also be holding SF Open Studios in the garden gallery at fabric8 on the weekend of October 10-11, 11AM-6PM, so be sure to mark your calendars for a visit to see EVERYTHING she has available!
