Terry and I could not help bumping into the two young artists selling their wares on Hayes Street yesterday. Turns out they are Crockett Bodelson and Sandra Wang who collaborate as SCUBA and have gotten a fair amount of attention for both their art and their green lifestyle since arriving in SF from Philadelphia.
They have a show coming up at FM Gallery in Oakland.
We procured two mini masterpieces for our respective and/or overlapping collections; the first, mine, depicts a baseball player, or at least his head and cap; the second, hers, is more intricate showing striped tableaus of City life including landmarks like the bridges. Sandra added the intriguing detail that that piece is also used as a t-shirt design.
Maybe someday they will end up with a mural in Palo Alto, joining the ranks of Greg Brown, Joey Piziali, Chris Johanson and David Huffman.
Terry was so excited to meet them she spilled her coffee all over their transaction table — the gods retaliated by making us late enough to the Orpheum that we were part of a “six minute audience hold” i.e. they would not seat us until after the first number, the “Prologue” of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim’s “West Side Story.”
