Santa Cruz County Open Studios Art Tour 2019


I’m on a every-other-year schedule for this mighty juried event and I am proud and pleased to be accepted each time. I’m Artist #217 in the free guide, out in September.

What’s great about this year is I will have an entirely new body of work: knitted porcelain! I cannot wait to share it with my visitors. Hopefully it will be you!

This Place Exhibition

What a wonderful world we live in! Here’s an Exhibition which celebrates “This Place” meaning the whole of it: “A group exhibition exploring the concept of place -personal space, intimate places, location, and global positions.” I am honored to be a part of this wide ranging group of artists and ideas. Me, Kalie Granier, David Kinch, Todd LeJeune and Margaret Niven have been gathered together by gallerist Ann Hazels to represent the aspects of the Big Idea of Place, writ large and writ small.

Here’s a roster of events related to this special grouping

  • September 27: Opening Reception 6-8pm
  • October 4: First Friday 6-9pm
  • October 20: Artist Talks 2pm
  • November: First Friday 6-9pm

Eeeep! Did you see those ARTIST TALKS? Yep, I will be standing up and saying a few things about my Knitted Porcelain works. Good thing I’ve been practicing!

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!

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.

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.
