Lila Afiouni Australian fine art acrylic artist in residence at Root Division on 17th Street in San Francisco

Lila Afiouni is an Australian abstract painter, staying in San Francisco for 6 months to paint. Her work is quite beautiful. I am thrilled that I won the silent auction at the Root Division fund raiser for a bottle she painted.

Be sure to check out her website as her older work is also quite beautiful. She was a resident artist in Paris for 6 months on her last sabatical. I want to take a sabatical to Paris to make art.

Root Division is an organization of Bay Area artists working for a livable existence in an arts and arts education community.” Their Taste 2011 was a delicious combination of food and art inspired by food. Located on 17th Street near South Van Ness, this organization has interesting art shows almost every month, though I have to say this last one really had the food going on. I have more pictures of food than art! Sorry about that. The artist who made these giant ceramic pieces is Cathy Lu,¬†one of the co-curators for the exhibition. Be sure to check out Root Division as they also have art classes for adults and youngsters.
