Decay, decomposition, illness, loss, failure... You may not know this, but women have a particular sense of worry and pending doom--from fears of rape and battery and centuries of institutionalized oppression, to the pain and mess of menstruation and childbirth, to the loss of 'beauty' as we age. Things Fall Apart gathers a selection of artists, who are women, to explore the ways women tackle decay in their artworks-either overtly or through subtext-as they look to their future, experience it prematurely, or recognize it in our every day. A variety of media is presented as each artist applies humor and sensitivity, sincerity and irony, aversion and acceptance to this entropic world we live in.

The reception also coincides with the Yerba Buena Gallery Walk, where you can view exhibitions and participate in events at a dozen galleries in downtown San Francisco. Details and a map and schedule can be found at
