kilgallenMargaret KilgallenBay Area artist Margaret Kilgallen’s unique approach to painting can be seen at the new exhibition “IN THE SWEET BYE & BYE” opening tonight at Redcat.

Her passion for folklore, craftsmanship and letterpress printing is evident throughout her work, from in her huge, bright murals to her small portraits of women, wanderers, surfers and hobos.

This is a posthumous showing as Kilgallen died of breast cancer at age 33 in 2001.

Opening reception: Wednesday, 15 June, 7pm to midnight
8pm – Live music by The Hallflowers, Peggy Honeywell, and Tommy Guerrero
10:30pm – Film screening of Bill Daniel’s Who is Bozo Texino?

Exhibition dates: 16 June – 21 August 2005
