The San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries is pleased to announce a new collaboration with Patina Restaurant Group and C+M (Coffee and Milk) War Memorial, SFAC @ C+M. For our inaugural project, we are pleased to present a suite of works by Combat Paper, exhibited in conjunction with our exhibition in the Main Gallery, Not Alone: Exploring Bonds Between and With Members of the Armed Forces.
Combat Paper transforms military uniforms into handmade paper. They host open and ongoing workshops that facilitate the papermaking process and welcome the use of personal material for papermaking, opening up a platform for exchange between veterans and civilians. Combat Paper believes that a uniform worn through military service carries with it stories and experiences that are deeply imbued in the woven threads. C+M will exhibit a selection of works on paper derived from military uniforms.
SFAC @ C+M is an exhibition series organized by SFAC Galleries at C+M War Memorial, a cafe located on the ground floor of the War Memorial Veterans Building. The location of C+M is also the site of the former SFAC Galleries, from 1996-2013.
