Bethany Rose

Bethany Rose is an oil painter, mixed media, and digital artist residing in San Francisco, California. Creating art all of her life, Bethany has taken inspiration from her experiences living in Japan, Texas, California, and the early artistic influences of Egan Shiele and Cindy Sherman.

Bethany’s latest work seems to be centered on the concepts of change and birth. She is also producing a number of graphic design and digital art projects, including snowboard designs, logo, branding and illustration.

Her formal training includes Natomas Charter Preforming and Fine Arts Academy, Classes at California Institute of the Arts in southern California, and is currently attending the Art Institute in San Francisco studying Graphic Design.

“We are seeing a new movement in art that seems to currently be undefined. From the energy of the fellow artists of my generation I cannot help but take inspiration. The energy and bravery we see in the art world is spreading like an epidemic, permeating everything in our culture outside of the art world. It is exciting to be part of this, because right now we’re redefining the world of fine art. Some call my work a strange mixture of surrealism, impressionism and shamanism, with unintentional nods to street artists …All I know is that the only time I feel like myself 100% is when I am painting.” – Bethany Rose

Curt Yagi

Once voted the Best of the Bay Singer Songwriter by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Curt Yagi has been on a tear through the Bay Area music scene. Curt and his full band, The People Standing Behind Me, are always-engaging to the crowd and bring a blend of happy acoustic rock with a touch of funk for flavor.

Ben Fong-Torres, former Senior Editor, Rolling Stone had this to say, “People keep comparing him to other artists, but I think he just sounds like Curt Yagi, and that is plenty good enough. This is one excellent singer and songwriter.”
