Are you coming to the party on Thursday?
I've had a fun 3 weeks at the Troll House so far, meeting people who wander in (sometime to just ask directions or use the loo) and sometimes to look at my photo art. Also had some people make appointmets and come in on their schedule. In between I've been plugging away at my Peru photos. I hope you'll come see my temporary digs - Thursday is the big party - smack in the middle of my time there, so I hope you and maybe some art loving friends can make it. (And while you're there, don't miss the art I hung in the bathroom....) This is truly the first time I've been able to show such a large collection of my work in one place - more than 30 pieces on the walls and about 300 unframed prints, so this is your big chance!! Oh, and there are still some Cuban cars, dye-infused on aluminum, ready to hang and VERY reasonalbe! (see them in the graphic above).
SEPTEMBER 28, 5:30 - 8pm, Pier 26 - between Bryant & Harrison on the San Francisco Embarcadero - one block from the Folsom MUNI stop. Walk into the pier entrance and you'll see the red door on the left. There's no ballgame that night so traffic won't be awful!
And the following week, come love Golden Gate Park!
As part of the citywide celebration of the 50 year anniversary of the Summer of Love, the SFWA Gallery chose 'Loving Golden Gate Park' as it's October theme. I had one piece selected for this show, shot outside of the DeYoung Museum this summer. I sort of 'cartooned' it up, Peter Max style - well, not really but a little. Anyway, hope you like it. It's matted in white in an 18x24" black wooden frame.
The Opening Reception is Thursday, October 5th from 5:30 - 8pm at the SFWA Gallery, 647 Irving Street @ 8th Avenue, San Francisco. Come enjoy the music, wine, finger food and 59 other pieces of art on the walls along with the unframed works and jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, glasswork, greeting cards, for view and for sale.
Still in the Print Bin
An assortment of new and old, matted in white at standard sizes, ready for your frames:

New Works last month
As you these are all from Peru, a drop in the bucket, but I'm chipping away at them - Clockwise from the top, a few turkey vultures perched on a bare tree in the Amazon, seen from the boat while still docked at the shore. Then the Urumbamba River running around Machu Picchu - in a reasonably sized print, you can see the Inca built steps in the middle distance. Below middle, a group of trekkers climbing up from the river to the mountain, and on the left, a 'llama walker' in Cusco.
And the books... *
The two volumes of Bay Area Jazz and Bluesicians, with a total of 251 local musicians photographed while performing are available on amazon.com (fastest way to get them online) or at www.bayareajazzandbluesicians.com probably a bit cheaper and takes 7 - 10 days to receive them. You can preview some of the pages on either site. If you prefer hand to hand consumerism, they can be purchased at Glen Park's Bird & Beckett Books & Records and at Noise a really cool record store on Balboa St, San Francisco, the Piedmont Piano Co. in Oakland and The Jazz Conservatory bookstore in Berkeley.
And never out of date, Street Seens can still be had from blurb.com. It's full of street photography from my jaunts here and there in the world, and it's available in both paper and hard cover versions.
You can preview the whole book HERE. It's only available online - purchase details on the preview page.
* If you come to the reception at the Pier, you can look at the books there - including another one I did called Wild Things of Costa Rica. No copies for sale on site, but you can see the real things....
