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!
