Featured Artists: Erin Crociani and Martha Rotten

Join us this evening from 5-7 pm for light refreshments, convivial conversation, and a chance to view our featured artists Erin Crociani and Francene Yorko.

Francene Yorko, more commonly known as Martha Rotten, creates lead-free pewter jewelry that “make your living hell a better place.”  Yorko lives and works in Baltimore, MD.

Erin Crociani ‘s paintings are inspired by life experiences, dreams, history, and sociology.  A Bay area native, Crociani uses her work to push social boundaries, and to garner acceptance and social awareness of some of the darker things in life. Her subjects explore tattoo and pin up girl culture and are both autobiographical and symbolic, steeped in Mexican myth and imagery.  Crociani earned her B.F.A. in painting from The California College of the Arts.
