Upcoming show: Wayward:
new work by Ellen Babcock and Teri Claude

Opening February 2nd, 2008
6 - 8 pm
301 Bocana Gallery
at the corner of Cortland and Bocana
in Bernal Heights

At 21st and Potrero, the devotional grotto is all that remains of St. Catherine's Home for Wayward Girls. This site is the inspiration for Ellen Babcock and Teri Claude's work, which explores the various ways unruly women have been dealt with over the past 100 years. The show includes sculptural pieces directly inspired by the grotto, and delicate embroideries based on ink blots which were historically used to diagnose homosexuality.
