I don't write much here anymore, and am more at a loss of words now when there are many things that could be said.
But, feel free to send your thoughts and donations to jg's family. kyahandzara.org. It will be appreciated much more than I can begin to describe.

So I don't have pics of her recent works (although one lives in our newly FINISHED BATHROOM), or the ones in the show, if you are in SF Saturday night, you should stop by the show. Take lots of pics and send them to me.
The press release:
‘A TOUCH OF PLEASURE’ - EXPOSE YOURSELF TO SELF PLEASURE AND CUTTING EDGE ART DURING NATIONAL MASTURBATION MONTH...
"Maria Kretschmann was born and raised on an oorganic farm outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She migrated north to upstate New York where she received her BFA in ceramics and sculpture from the School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology. Maria currently resides in Philadelphia where she maintains a healthy studio life. In practice, Maria is powered by the idea of making work that emphasizes audience participation. She is determined to break down the wall that separates the artist and the observer. Embracing this moment of interaction-confrontation helps to create an environment that promotes an understanding between the two. With creating an atmosphere for viewing her work, she simultaneously engages the observer in a full sensory experience. Maria's extreme interest in multiples demonstrates her human need to produce like a machine. She explores her ideas with the "more is more" concept. Her work is instinctively honest, as well as humorous. A fascination with the concept of private and public thoughts, has led her to this most current work. Maria is an avid maker, and liver of life. Her life is her work, and she invites you to participate. mariakretschmann.com
