Current Events


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: 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.

Upcoming Events

October 14 and 15, 2017

Santa Cruz County Open Studios 2017

Here it comes: The local Open Studios Art Tour! I’m busy cranking out some marvelous new works for you to, well, marvel at!

Added to the favorite beer cans and spice tins, are my latest forays into the world of shiny interesting glazes and mixed media. I’ll have ceramic Collaged Wallpieces, sculptural Found Object Assemblages, Apothecary Vessels, Henpecked Bowls and lots of quirky small works. Plus the usual Studio Sale table of discounted or discontinued pieces (never seconds!)

I am open 10-5, for the one South County Weekend: Saturday and Sunday, October 14 and 15.

I’m Artist #234 in the free Guide, easy to find and near some great eating in any direction. (Although if Mr. Crain makes his Olive Tapenade Foccacia, you won’t want to go anywhere else.)
