“Games People Play” Solo Exhibit

It’s my second solo show at this artsy Oakland location and I’m presenting a series of seven ceramic and found object artful and playable games. Most are based on one or two interpretations of older games, a few are fusions of two games.  You can read all the fascinating details on this page dedicated to the exhibit: Games People Play. 

Gummo is a checkers knockoff with chewed ceramic gumwads for playing pieces.

In Crystals and Corns, which can be played as a Korean capture game or another movement/territory game, the playing pieces are giant pink salt crystals and peppercorns. 

Gear Train makes lines of gears ala Connect5 or a Japanese game called Gomoku.

Color Theory has a glowing eight-colored playing grid.

Glyph Con is a 3D Concentration game.

Toss It Off is a unique combination of Beer Pong and Ring Toss.

And, Packrat is a log version of Mancala.

Opening Reception is First Friday, March 2 from 6-9 pm and the Gallery is open every Saturday from 12-5. Come see!

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.

ONGOING: Many Hands Gallery

Many Hands has carried my work for 4-5 years now. I always keep them well-stocked with my latest work, even when I’m doing other shows or Open Studios. I am their most local, local artist as my studio is nearby. They are open seven days a week, 10-6, right near Gayle’s Bakery and some other nice shops in Capitola. Stop in! Lots to see.

California Clay Competition

In its 28th year, this annual juried ceramics competition has long been a goal of mine. I was accepted into the 2012 show and thoroughly enjoyed myself, even if I was more than a tad overwhelmed. THIS year, after a LONG time away, I applied once more, simply to put recent work I was inordinately proud of in front of the juror, Tiffany Schmierer. I studied with Tiffany for two very full weeks in 2008 and then for six weeks in the summer of 2009. It changed my creative life – and I was hoping she would see the roots of her guidance, but also see it for what it was now as full expressions of me. She did, and boy am I happy about that.

Both of the pieces she accepted are part of my personal collection, but will be offered for sale in this exhibit – and there is prize money that might be awarded! (Last time I did get a gift certificate to a clay supplier and it felt very good!)

The CCC is held in conjunction with the annual California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art in which the entire downtown of Davis is taken over for a lively long weekend featuring the works from around 40 schools’ ceramics departments, demonstrations, major gallery exhibits (such as the CCC) and lots of speakers, break out sessions and a general steeping in this artform. I try not to miss and you’re invited too.

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…

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. I am taking that to heart and will find something to make or reflect that.

More coming as the work appears and progresses!

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.

More as we get closer.

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. 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.”

Held at Stockwell Cellars, I have to admit the receptions are great fun. The art and the festive atmosphere make for a great evening.

I have a few ideas already – might be clay and might not be clay – probably a mix. And on the wall, too!

More as we get closer.
