Here is the changing array of Exhibits, Festivals, Studio Tours, Fundraisers, Gallery Shows and Pop-Up Venues where you may find my work, and sometimes me with it!
This annual exhibit is always loaded with surprises and value. It’s full of artworks jus’ rarin’ to go home. Around 70 artists stock the gallery with delicious clutches of their smaller works, nothing priced over $300. It’s an amazing and ever-changing collection, because each piece leaves when it’s purchased. As pieces sell, the gallery is restocked, so for the duration the array of offerings is constantly enriched. This year I will be debuting a wide variety of my newest work, which combines clay and fiber. Check out these sweet little ceramic half pints, each with its own knitted strawberry.
It’s already the 10th year for this wonderful exhibit/silent auction fundraiser for the Arts Education endeavors of the Arts Council of Santa Cruz County. It’s a heart/love-themed show and I have fun thinking up something lovely every time. This year I’ve donated a collaged wallpiece composed of a clay crocheted heart topped with a knitted pink rose with gold leaf around the edges of the unfinished wood support, titled “It’s Complicated.” The show’s up right now and runs the first half of February with receptions at the formal opening (Feb 1 First Friday) and closing (Feb 13.) It’s quite an array with binders available for silent bidding throughout.
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!
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.
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.
