Good Morning Everyone,

Hope all's well with you. Firstly, apologies if you've had this message before...

Next month 'If you could' are taking part in a special christmas fete at Somerset house,
and unsurprisingly will be asking members of the public 'If you could get anything for christmas,
what would it be?'

To set the scene we're going to be building a grotto in the Navy room of Somerset house
and are going to have people drawing all over the walls. They'll then take home a present tag
with their choice of gift on it to hint to friends and family before the big day...

We're hoping to fill the space with some drawings before everyone arrives and would love it if
you had a spare 2 minutes to do a black and white line drawing of what you'd like to receive, or
even just use something relevant you've already drawn that can be printed and pasted on the
wall to get the ball rolling.

Any help would be hugely appreciated, and it should be a really lovely event so it'd be good to
get as many good drawings on the wall before the public get let loose!

Please send all artwork to:

The fair will take place on the evening of Saturday the 15th and during the day of Sunday 16th of
December and it'd be great to see as many of you there as possible, more details nearer the time...

All the best,
Alex and Will

“Rail‘s ‘artwalk’was a trip! -- a journey of discovery, sociability, and unexpected aesthetic delights. It’s a perfect opportunity to explore what’s germinating in the San Francisco art scene
and to tour this developing area of the city.”
MARCIA TANNER curator / writer

Rail is an innovative alliance of San Francisco based project spaces and galleries: ampersand international arts, Ping Pong Gallery, Silverman Gallery and TART. As seen on the map, Rail’s project spaces and galleries are located in the path of the new MUNI T train that connects the Third Street, DogPatch, South Beach and Mission Bay neighborhoods.

The Rail galleries are diverse in their programming, but share an understanding of what constitutes an art experience, informed by the intimate nature of their spaces. Through their
collective experiences, Rail spaces ensure the growing arts presence on Third Street. Rail’s actions include monthly coordinated openings, projects across all Rail venues, an online
resource, hosting of national and international visiting artists, curators and critics.
