Since 1988. West Portal’s Fine Arts Stroll takes place in the heart of one of San Francisco’s well-known neighborhoods: bustling with activity, quaint retail stores, restaurants, bookshops and coffeehouses. Local residents and tourists alike flock to admire the works of more than 40 artists displaying everything from photography, paintings, ceramics, jewelry and much more. The show is free to the public and is presented by the West Portal Avenue Association. Among the featured artists at this year’s show: Jennifer Clifford Studio: San Francisco Medium: Mixed Media Art: Drawing inspiration from the beautiful San Francisco Bay, Jennifer creates whimsical collage and screen print art. Creative Process: Jennifer’s collage work incorporates media from variety of paper materials, including wallpaper, old ticket stubs, Muni and BART passes, maps, newsprint, rice paper, and vintage magazines. Vibrant offbeat fabrics are also found in her collages, some of which are repurposed clothes. Her screen print work is created from her photography. She prints on fabric and/or wallpaper and mounts each print to a wood panel. She describes her approach to design as textural, colorful, resourceful, imperfect, and eclectic. John Osterhaug Studio: San Francisco Medium: Glass Art: Jewelry Creative Process: Since the 1980s, John has made glass jewelry, including cufflinks for men, by creating bright and reflective, almost neon color on fused glass with oxidizing metals, which he kiln fires. John creates all of his work from start to finish. He begins the process by cutting, sanding, drilling and kiln-firing multi- colored pieces of glass and then crafts them into earrings, pendants, rings, necklaces and bracelets. "The method that I use to create my jewelry results in a unique set of work exhibiting a luminescent quality that glistens and glows as you move it," said John.
