To the Friends of Giraffe:

I know. It's a year in advance. But mark your calendar for October 15, 2020. That's the opening of our solo show of digital paintings and sculpture at the Monterey Museum of Art. Called "Leaves of Glass", it will have some fun surprises for you!

Our cover image is titled "SquiggleBots".

"!Brazen Hussy" brings you three courageous artists. Elinor Carucci's intimate - very intimate! -self-portraits of being a woman in middle age; Mary Beth Edelson's angry feminism, complete with knives; and Maccarone Gallery's "The Other and Otherwise".
