Finally a new post

I have been remiss, I know. Since October there have been many art events, music to photograph, friends to hang with, holidays, travel, and suddenly it’s February. So, here’s a link to my last two travel albums, Los Angeles and France. For France, I suggest you refresh your coffee cup first – there are 128 images – but that’s only about 3% of what I shot…

Fall Open Studios

Right in the midst of my Troll House art exhibit, I was asked to participate in Open Studios in one of my favorite SF venues, Noise Vinyl Record Store and Art Gallery! So they chose 4 pieces of mine which are now on their walls and will be featured through November. Preview above, but you know it’s best to go there in person! In addition to art, you might find that record you’ve been hunting for your decades, plus they have live music on Sundays and some other days (check their website). Open Studios weekend is Sat – Sun, October 21 – 22.

One month into my Summer Residency

I have been neglecting this page. Finding out that spending every weekend in an art show is a tiny bit taxing! Like on weekdays I sleep until 10 am if I don’t set an alarm. But it’s been a fun time; I’ve met lots of cool people, had great feedback, and sold a few items. My reception was very well attended and I’m now planning a closing reception for 3 weeks from now. Here is a little composite of life in The Troll House so far.

Two Month Art Residency at the Troll House

The Troll House (as in ‘under the [Bay] Bridge’) also known as Pier 26 is on San Francisco’s Embarcadero between Harrison and Bryant Streets has made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I’ll be holing up there most afternoons and early evenings until the end of October. Yesterday I hung 31 framed pieces of art and brought in 7 portfolios of unmatted prints.

Two in Marin

Happy to report that two of my pieces are in the photography show at the Marin Society of Artists, Images 2017.  Dropped them off yesterday and saw many wonderful pieces so they’ll be in good company.  The show opens in San Rafael on June 15th and the Reception is the 25th from 4 – 6pm.

A Great Party

The opening reception for my [Almost] Black & White show at the Bay View Boat Club was busy and buzzy and fun. Ned Boynton & friends’ Gypsy guitar sounds were perfect. Here a re a few shots. The show will be up until the end of May (sans the unframed prints which were for one night only). Contact me if you’d like to see it since it’s a private club and they might not let you in otherwise.

Getting ready for my Solo Show

I’m spending this weekend printing and framing and sorting and organizing and getting myself ready for my 7th Solo show at the Bay View Boat Club. I decided a while ago to make this one ‘Black & White’, but I did have to add the word ‘mostly’ into the title – just couldn’t stick to my guns. If you’re in the SF Bay Area I hope you will stop in to the boat club during the month of May, but even better, come to my Opening Reception on Thursday, May 4 from 6 – 8 where I will have lots of unframed prints with me for that night only – great time for bargain hunting as I’m always running out of storage space and need to make room for new work!
Here’s a mockup of what the Art Wall MIGHT look like.

Kids & Art

SF Supervisor Jeff Sheehy opens the Kids & Art Benefit art show to help fund their worthy work of giving kids with cancer the opportunity to work one to one with an artist who helps them use art to express themselves and escape from their day to day difficulties. I’m happy to be part of this show – that’s my Magic In The Night behind Jeff.

Brides of March

Funny thing happened on the way to a Happy Hour – I ran into the Brides of March. Turns out this is an annual event that’s been going on for the past 19 years. Who knew? They enjoyed having their pictures taken.

Artist Spotlight

Here’s me doing shameless self-promotion. I was selected to be ‘spotlighted’ by the SFWA gallery of which I’ve been a member for six years. If you want to know more than you ever really wanted to know about what makes me tick, at least artwise, have a look at:
