Masters of Santa Cruz Third Annual Exhibit

Here’s a fun show comprised of the work of local artists responding to a specially selected work of a master artist. In the past we’ve riffed on the Mona Lisa and American Gothic. This year it will be versions and interpretations of Diego Rivera’s The Flower Carrier.

My own rendition turned out great, as you can see: red clay tiles in the shapes of this iconic work, arranged as a jigsaw on a black background support.

Held at Stockwell Cellars, I have to admit the receptions are great fun with their fabulous wines and wood-fired pizza. The art and the festive atmosphere make for a great evening. Drop in!

ACGA Palo Alto Clay and Glass Festival

It’s been a few years since I have participated in this Festival, but let me tell you, it’s a goody and more. 150+ Juried-in Exhibiting Level clay and glass artists are there sharing and selling their best. I used to attend as a student and my head would be spinning and my fingers itching to get back to the studio, I was so stoked.

I have a whole new body of work to share with the folks who attend this year. They might not even recognize my booth. YAY!

Free admission, demos, a gallery full of all the Member’s works, refreshments and kid’s activities.

Saturday and Sunday 10-5.

Pajaro Valley Art Gallery Member’s Exhibit 2019: What Nourishes Us

Every year this local gallery sets a theme for the annual Member’s Show. It is often profound and the works which show up reflect that. This year it’s about “What Nourishes Us,” as artists or as humans, as souls, creatives, bodies, dreamers.  It’s always a winner.

My piece in this show is a response to a found object given to me and which now contains ingredients for art-making. Artist’s Alchemy Set  is a mix of inspirations, including the imaginary. The show is up for a good six weeks and merits a thoughtful visit or two.

ONGOING: Pence Art Gallery Gift Shop

A great stop in downtown Davis, CA all year round, the Pence Art Gallery, going strong since 1976, is a great supporter of ceramic art, especially during the annual California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art each April (organized by the nearby John Natsoulas Gallery.) In that vein, I am thrilled to have my work represented in their gift shop along with several other regional ceramic artists of note. Enjoy your visit!

ONGOING: Roscoe Ceramic Gallery Small Works Case

Derik Van Beers has provided a sweet spot in Oakland’s Art District for ceramics for quite awhile now. He offers world-class monthly solo shows in the front section of his studio space as well as in his Small Works Case in the hallway of a conglomerate of art galleries in the same building. My work is has been in the case for several years now. Take yourself out to a lively art scene and check it out!. There’s a map to the Saturday Art Walk with lovely nearby eateries and, er, drinkeries.

All Things Wicked

OK, here’s a fun one: “All Things Wicked” is a fun take on the creepy/scary sensibilities of Halloween and Days of the Dead – or anything else that goes bump in the night. It is curated by Eileen Hendren and the invitation to show mentioned being scary without being graphic or gory. Good Old Fashioned Fright Night. Creepy with a soupçon of vrai frisson.

I have an idea (sitting here in March as I write this) that involves a whipping post. Oh Myyyyyyy! Good thing I have time to let it evolve…
