A Gaggle of Holiday Shows

So I have work in a few group shows for the holidaze. The first, "The More the Merrier" group show at Art Ark in San Jose, has a closing reception tomorrow night, December 2nd. Also...

"Tiny" group show at Studio Gallery in SF, November 3rd - December 23rd. I have a few small, affordable pieces in this show. Studio is a wonderful neighborhood gallery on Polk St. This Sunday, December 4 is Studio's birthday bash, so stop in and see all the wonderful art if you're in the neighborhood!

I also have work at Cactus Gallery in L.A., for the "Tiny Treasures" show. There is a preview night this coming Saturday, December 3, and the official opening is Saturday, December 10. Cactus Gallery is a local treasure so if you're in the Eagle Rock area of L.A. come have a look!

I also will have work in "Woodland" at Modern Eden Gallery in North Beach (San Francisco). The show opens on Saturday, December 10.

Stay warm, take care, and I hope everyone has a beautiful and peaceful Winter holiday season!

"Hello Tomorrow" at David Brower Center

The Brower Center asked Bay Area artists to respond to David Brower’s quote: “Have a good time saving the world. Otherwise, you’re just going to depress yourself.” With over 500 submissions, we were inspired by the sheer breadth of the work. From traditional painting to installation to the conceptual avant-garde, this show is a powerful indicator of how pervasive social, environmental, and political concerns are among artists and the community at large. We hope that these 22 works — imaginative, contemplative, and playful — will also inspire our visitors to consider how we will all live in the future.

Spring shows...

Life has been crazy with non-art related busy-ness like work, dealing with my parents' house, dealing with sick cats, dealing with cats who don't like each other but live under the same get the drift. But I'm still managing to make some time for art! And I'm in a couple of wonderful shows this month...

The new little piece below is one of three I'll have in "Delicious", a large group show of food-oriented art at Studio Gallery in SF. The show opening is Sunday, March 20 and the show runs March 16 - April 10...

It's called "Catch of the Day" and is 5" x 7" acrylic on wood.

I also am delighted to have my work included in "Alice in Wonderland II" at the Hive Gallery in Los Angeles, which runs through March 26.

And, if you're in L.A. I have some paintings at wonderful Cactus Gallery in Eagle Rock. I love this gallery and Sandra, the owner is so supportive of artists, so stop in if you are nearby! And maybe I won't go so long between blog posts next time (let's not hold our breaths).
