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

June 2 - July 2017

Santa Cruz Masters – American Gothic

A second round for this spunky evolving group of local Santa Cruz artists following last year’s successful take-offs on the Mona Lisa. This year it’s a bunch of interpretations of Grant Wood’s “American Gothic.” My ideas keep evolving as well, but writing here in early April, I think I’ve got it!

Color! The PVA Member’s Exhibit 2017

I love that the theme for this year’s Member’s Exhibit has to do with an Element of Art and not necessarily a subject. It’s got my own creative juices flowing and I plan to make a piece specifically for this show, throwing either my favorite color(s)  – or lack of them – at it for the best measure possible. So many good ideas floating around at this point and I have time to let them percolate.

ACGA Clay and Glass Festival

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.
