"Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened"- Anatole France

Tracey sees in the dogs eyes, the "windows to their souls". "There is no greater feeling for me than to capture a dog's true character: a moment in time when they go from being shy and curious to trusting and relaxed in front of my lens....and there is the perfect picture".

Over the past 15 years Tracey has been capturing the essence of a dog's soul with her camera. Her love of dogs is evident in the pictures she takes.

San Francisco Tribal & Textile Arts Show Features 15,000 Art & Antiques


Event Hailed As 'Best Tribal Art Show in the World' by Art Critics, Museum Professionals, and Collectors
The Annual San Francisco Tribal & Textile Arts Show (SFTTA) will feature an assortment of museum-quality masks, textiles, sculptures and jewelry. Taking place February 8 – 10, 2013 at the historic Fort Mason Center, the SFTTA is known globally as the destination for serious collectors, Curators and Museum professionals to purchase new items on the marketplace, spot trends and evaluate the state of their own collections. Hailed by art critics as the ‘best Tribal Art Show in the World’, this event is a unique and exceptional blend of Art History and World Culture. As one art reviewer states, “This one of my favorite art events of the year -- so many objects to marvel at, learn about, and just plain appreciate that I don't even know where to start.”

The SFTTA will feature more than 15, 000 textiles, arts, and antiques from more than top 100 galleries. Since coming to prominence in the 1960s, demand and interest in Tribal Art has grown steadily while the number of authentic art and artifacts remains fixed. As the modern world becomes smaller, fewer and fewer people living within tribal communities are continuing their traditional art forms. The San Francisco Tribal & Textile Show is one of the only nexus points where these disappearing arts can converge with the public.

The 2013 SFTTA will feature a special exhibition of stitched quilts from the Indian sub-continent. 'Saami and Kantha - The fabled stitched quilts of Sind and Bengal' will showcase the finest examples of this quilting tradition, the Ralli quilts made by the Saami, a caste of beggars from the deserts of Sind in Pakistan and the Kanthas quilts from Bengal (West Bengal in India and Bangladesh). Made from recycled materials, such as disused clothing or old cloth, the practice of making these quilts has evolved over centuries. The rare and intricate weavings range from depicting bold, abstract patterns to figurative representations of village life. 'Saami and Kantha - The fabled stitched quilts of Sind and Bengal' will be curated by Textile Folk Art Specialist, John Gillow.

The San Francisco Tribal & Textile Arts Show opens with a preview gala on Thursday, February 7, 2013 from 6:00pm-9:00pm to benefit the galleries for Art of Africa, Oceania and the Americas and the Textiles galleries of the de Young Museum. The gala offers a ‘first look’ at the special exhibition of stitched quilts from the Indian sub-continent as well as the thousands of art and antiques on display.

General admission for The San Francisco Tribal & Textile Show is $15 per person. To purchase tickets for the Opening Night benefit, please call 415-750-3518 or email The Opening Night benefit takes place Thursday, February 7, 6:00pm-9:00pm. This event is open to the public on Friday February 8, 11:00am-7:00pm, Saturday February 9, 11:00am-7:00pm and Sunday February 10, 11:00am-5:00pm. There will be no admittance on Sunday after 4:30pm.

Mark Hogancamp: Crash Landing / "Guitar" up through 17th!

Mark Hogancamp: Crash Landing / "Guitar" up through 17th!

One Mile Gallery

Mark Hogancamp, Crash Landing!

  Opening Reception, Saturday, December 1, 2-7 pm

Opening Reception, Saturday, December 1, 2-7 pm

One Mile Gallery concludes its 2012 season with Crash Landing!, new and old works by Mark Hogancamp. This is the artist's first exhibition with the gallery. It continues through Saturday, January 5, 2013. 

Mark Hogancamp is a photographer who prefers to identify himself as a director, and with good reason. Mark is the creator of Marwencol, a 1/6 scale, WWII-era Belgian village in which he stages and photographs a complex narrative of Nazi intrigue, lesbian melodrama, and Sgt. Rock-style heroics. With his immense cast of dolls, Mark freely intermixes history and fantasy, allowing Kurt Russell to confront Goebbels, time-traveling witches to antagonize Hitler, and Mark himself to battle personal demons.

In 2000, Mark was the victim of an assault outside of a bar that left him with brain damage. Faced with significant memory loss, diminished hand-eye coordination, and crushing anxiety, Mark retreated from the real world into the imaginary one of Marwencol. Inclined to think of the project more as therapy than art, Mark worked for years in obscurity, accumulating thousands of photographs before his unique oeuvre was eventually discovered. A 2010 documentary, Jeff Malmberg's award-winning "Marwencol," earned Mark international attention and a significant new fan base. 

Works soon available for sale at

DEC 3 - MIAMI | Stellar Art Collection to Debut on Celebrity Reflection

MIAMI – On Monday, December 3, 2012, Celebrity Reflection, the newest ship in the Celebrity fleet, with an innovative, original art collection, will debut in Miami before the ship sets sail on its inaugural Stateside voyage. The collection is part of the fleetwide Celebrity Art Collection, representing a nearly $60-million investment across the fleet, showcasing conceptually strong, unique pieces and providing a rare opportunity to view art outside of conventional museum and gallery venues.
Julian Opie, 1958, England, FROM 13 OUTFITS SERIES, 2000. Vinyl and paint on wood
Since 2006, International Corporate Art (ICArt), the leading international art advisory group for the leisure industry, with offices in Miami, London, and Oslo, has curated the museum-quality art collection for Celebrity Cruises.
To mark the launch of Celebrity Reflection and its brilliant art collection, ICArt and Celebrity Cruises will host an exclusive press and VIP event onboard the ship December 3, coinciding with the start of Art Basel Miami Beach week. At the event on Celebrity Reflection, invited guests will view the unique collection, meet and mingle with contributing artists, and witness 2008 Whitney Biennale participant and conceptual artist Bert Rodriguez’s performance, “Everywhere I Look, I Only See Myself.”
Robert Rauschenberg 1925-2008, United States, INTERMISSION (GROUND RULES), 1996 Intaglio
“Celebrity Cruises’ commitment to fine art is unparalled in the maritime industry,” said Mariangela Capuzzo, ICArt Creative Director and Lead Curator. “Their ships have become a platform for a stellar art collection with work by important established, mid-career and emerging artists. ICArt’s relationship with Celebrity has been one of mutual appreciation and positive evolution culminating withCelebrity Reflection, the fifth in Celebrity’s stunning, five-ship Solstice Class series.”
The Celebrity Reflection Art Collection is comprised of approximately 136 new acquisitions, including original paintings, sculptures, photography, video, drawings, prints and site-specific, architecturally-integrated installations. In addition, there are 115 standout artworks selected from the Celebrity Art Collection on former ships, including works by Robert Rauschenberg, John Baldessari, Julian Opie, Kiki Smith and Richard Prince.
Bert Rodriguez 1975, Cuba REFLECTION, 2012 Steel, fiberglass and paint with LED lights
Each ship in Celebrity Cruises’ fleet reinvents itself through its art collection, which is inspired by the vessel’s name and essence.Celebrity Reflection’s curatorial theme, “The Seductiveness of a Reflection,” investigates the effect of art via the physical properties of reflective materials, as well as the subtler act of reflection. Examples include Mirror Flower by Jeff Koons, Ann Veronica Janssen’s gilded Venetian blinds called Store Dore, and Aziz & Cucher’s light boxes, Untitled (Reflection Series). Two prominent project spaces with site-specific commissions include Bert Rodriguez’s Reflection in the ship’s upper Grand Foyer, featuring a suspended, living tree reflecting upon itself, and Carlos Betancourt’s The Celestial Garden, an all-encompassing visual and sensory experience in the Ensemble vestibule.
Celebrity Cruises’ passion for creating timeless and memorable experiences is exemplified through the quality and breadth of its art collections. Challenging the assumption that viewers can only be moved by art in familiar, established venues, Celebrity Reflectioninspires both guests and artists through its greater creative possibilities.
