Here are news items about my shows, career, website, and other items. To get announcements emailed to you of my upcoming shows and other news, please subscribe to my announcement list.
Even if you're unable to make it to my studio during an exhibition, you can still have a look—and meet me. My studio is open by appointment. No cost, pressure, or obligation, of course. Just call for easy directions, then come say hello and have a look at my work. I hope to see you soon.
6/7, 6/8, 6/14, & 6/15/2014: For the 11th time, I'll participate in East Bay Open Studios. This year, I'll be back at my cozy home studio in West Berkeley. I'll have some new work and old favorites, plus my book of night photography. Please stop by between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. and say hello. And if my work moves you, inspires you, or delights your senses in any way, please consider taking some home.
East Bay Open Studios is produced by Pro Arts, a 40-year-old Oakland-based nonprofit that supports the arts within communities by serving the ongoing needs of artists. Open Studios connects the public with over 400 regional artists and is accompanied by the Directory of East Bay Arts. More information and online gallery at www.proartsgallery.org.
2/15/2014-3/20/2014: I'm flattered and pleased to be included in another Collector group show. Collector is an art shop in Berkeley's Elmwood neighborhood, on College at Ashby (with a new popup store at the San Francisco airport!). They carry all kinds of gorgeous 2D wall art, prints, cards, jewelry, ceramics, and more. Really nice stuff chosen by really nice people.
Reception: Friday, March 14, 6-8 p.m. Say hello, check out the art, and enjoy the live music and food and drink. Hope to see you there!
The framed work they've chosen will be up for five weeks. A selection of my matted pieces are available too. It's a cool store. Go check it out.
12/14, 12/15, 12/21, & 12/22/2013: It's been chilly this fall. But it will be warm and cozy in my studio for two weekends in December, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., as I open my studio (map and directions) to you, the frenzied art-buying public.
Take some of these items home with you to treat yourself or someone you love:
- Framed prints, plus matted prints you can frame however you like. They come in sizes from 8"x10" to 32"x40".
- My book of night photos, Good Night, Ocean View, in softcover or hardcover
There will be time during the show to order prints for whatever holiday you celebrate. Plus, there are lots of prints on hand to take home with you. I ship too, for those choosing gifts for faraway loved ones.
All the best this holiday season, and may next year be your best year yet. Hope to see you at my studio soon.
SLATE Autumn Collection: Focus on Photography
If you are a fan of Oakland Art Murmur or Saturday Stroll, Oakland's gallery crawls, you already know SLATE contemporary gallery. SLATE focuses on abstract art, and this show collects some of my work along with that of eight other photographers: Roy Berkowitz, Richard Koci Hernandez, Hap Leonard, Christopher Nickel, Silvia Poloto, Diane Rosenblum, Hiroko To, and Elizabeth Williams. Plus, my friend Vicky Mei Chen will show her silkscreen and collage work in the Hall Gallery.
Even judging from the preview of the show (and web images do not compare to prints), this is a show you will want to see. In fact, why not come to the artists reception and say hello. And please bring your family and friends!
Reception: Friday, September 6, 5-6 pm
Art Murmur: September 6 and October 4, 6-9 pm
Third Thursdays: September 19, 6-8 pm
Exhibition: August 22-October 5, 2013
Where: SLATE contemporary gallery, 473 25th St., Oakland, CA
