White Hat fell in love

My ‘noirish’ photograph of the gentrified-into-oblivion Retox Lounge which used to be in my neighborhood, left the SFWA Gallery on Valentine’s Day weekend to go to a new home, somewhere in the East Bay. I never actually ventured into the Retox (maybe the red velvet and skulls in the window put me off), but I’m glad it’s iconic presence will continue on someone’s wall.

Music Art goes to the Bayview

Several of my music art pictures are now hanging in Word. A Cafe on Third Street in San Francisco’s Bayview district. This small, friendly neighborhood cafe / restaurant / bar and now new jazz venue is a perfect place for them to have another airing.

Several Pieces in Edge of Frame Gallery

Currently have 8 pieces in a group show at the Edge of Frame Gallery in San Francisco’s Western Addition. The show is running until February 1, weekends (when I’m here) and some weekdays if the owner is in or by appointment (contact me!) Here’s what’s there of mine (click images for full view):

National Exposure!

I was pretty excited to have one of my music photographs make it into the Wall Street Journal last weekend – so I’m shouting it here from the blog!

The jazz blogger, Marc Myer, wrote a piece on pianist/arranger Larry Dunlap who was playing Cape Verde composer Amandio Cabral’s compositions at a particular concert I had attended.  Amandio was in the row in front of me so I created a double exposure of the two of them.  The link is here but if you don’t feel like reading through or scrolling down to the bottom, the photograph is right here:

The Red Leaf at Infinity Towers

I was pleased to be notified that one of my favorite abstracts, The Red Leaf, would be one of the pieces going to SF’s Infinity Towers Community for a three-month stint in their ground floor area. In case any readers live there are visiting a friend, it’s hanging in the corridor between reception and the elevator.

Art at the Box Factory

I was so pleased to be contacted by a curator to place pieces of my artwork in a space that was coming on the market.  The space used to be the late artist Rex Ray’s studio and has now been converted into a unique 1-bedroom unit in a live-work community.  In the end she placed 12 of my pieces along with works from two other artists to show off the space.  It looked stunning and the place is now sold of course. One of my photographs (Umbrellas, second row left) was purchased by the selling  agent. Woo Hoo

Here’s a little gallery of how some of them looked in situ.

My Music Art is now in South San Francisco

The show went up yesterday – all the Chameleon Jazz pictures plus another 15 or so of my music artworks.

If you go very, very soon, you will probably find the film still covering the Chameleon pictures since the spackling isn’t done yet. Thank you to Nick’s On Grand owner, Kenny Annis for doing the hard work, and to mi querida amiga Frieda for helping make sure it was all evenly spaced.

RECEPTION IS FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 13 from 6pm. Jazz in the Patio from 7 provided by Steve Nelson and his quartet.

Here’s the Promo:

A few more Chameleons

Four new ones since the last post. Still plan on a couple more. There will be an exhibition in the Bay Area later in the year. Woo Hoo!

Another Winner

Just thought I’d announce that my Shop and Stop (below) was awarded a Special Recognition in the June competition from Light, Space and Time. (It’s also hanging at the SFWA gallery right now as part of their June show, but will come down on Saturday.

10th Solo Show at the Bay View Boat Club is up

I hung my MORROCO SHOW today and this poor photo (way too much morning glare) might entice you to come to the reception on Tuesday, June 18 from 6 – 8pm with live jazz from 7 until 10-ish.

Of course at the Reception I will have bins with matted prints and note cards beyond Morocco.
