San Francisco, September 3rd, 2005-- ABADA-Capoeira San Francisco will display an exhibit of photographs of capoeira and maculele in a gallery opening and artist reception on Saturday, September 24th, 2005, 6:00-9:00pm. The photographs were taken at ACSF’s Spirit of Brazil: Elements of Sound Performance Concert Series held at Dance Mission Theater in March 2005. Two local artists, Branden Johannesen and Lynnly Labovitz, donated their work for the exhibit. The artists have given a unique gift to the community, as it is rare to have the opportunity to see professional images of capoeira and maculele, even as the art forms gain popularity. Over 65 photographs will be on display at ACSF’s Brazilian Arts Center, located at 3221 22nd Street (at Mission Street) in San Francisco.
All photographs will be available for sale to the general public, and proceeds will benefit The Reaching All Youth (RAY) Project, ACSF’s youth program offering free and reduced price capoeira classes, performance opportunities, youth leadership opportunities, artist training, and bi-annual health workshops to youth aged 5-19 from low-income families.
The reception welcomes the photographers, Mr. Johannesen and Ms. Labovitz, as well as the ACSF performing artists who performed in Spirit of Brazil: Elements of Sound. Like the photographers, the performers donated their work in the show so that all proceeds could benefit The Reaching All Youth Project. Guests at the Gallery Opening will be able to meet all the artists and enjoy cocktails and refreshments.
The photos will continue to be available for purchase following the gallery reception on ACSF’s web site.
