Fogbelt residents got a lucky break when legendary CRASS artist GEE VAUCHER debuted an impressively thorough retrospective exhibit of her work for the seminal British punk band as well as more intimate personal paintings at San Francisco's JACK HANLEY GALLERY last month. In the late-70s when the punk anarchists in Crass found themselves in need of suitable cover art, Vaucher was an obvious choice to fabricate imagery as demanding and message-focused as the proto-hardcore music the band was creating. Like her artistic peers Raymond Pettibon and Winston Smith, the task put Vaucher on the map and ultimately jumpstarted her career as a fine artist (with a little help along the way from star curator RICH JACOBS). January 19th is the last day to get a look at Vaucher's eye-popping oeuvre, don't miss it:
