Current Events


ONGOING: Pajaro Vallery Gallery Gift Shop

The Gift Shop at Pajaro Valley Gallery is a fresh accent to the excellent exhibits they hold. It features an ever-changing inventory of tasty local art in nearly all media: jewelry, cards, small works, from paintings and prints to sculpture and, of course, MY latest ceramic offerings. Makes a great resource for handmade gifts.

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.

Take Aways: Art to Go!

The annual fundraising art exhibit for the Pajaro Valley Arts Gallery. It features as many artists as they can fit in the gallery, showing as many more-affordable and portable works of art as they can.  As pieces sell throughout the exhibit, they are replaced with more. Riches abound. This is my first time in this one.

Santa Cruz Masters – American Gothic

A second round for this  spunky group of local Santa Cruz artists following last year’s successful take-offs on the Mona Lisa. This year it’s a bunch of renditions of Grant Wood’s “American Gothic.” I am planning a life-size clay sculpture! Let’s see if I pull it off.

Santa Cruz County Open Studios 2017

OK, it’s a ways off and I still have to apply and be accepted and all that, but hold a good thought for my 8th year of participation in this self-guided tour of the Finest Artists in the County. I am always proud to be a part of this event and will have lots of new work as well as discounted discontinued pieces. Maybe my dear husband will bless us with his fresh foccacia, too.
