TWO INVITATIONS THIS MONTH:
Opening Reception for group show at the SFWA Gallery: Thursday September 7th.
BIG event for Thursday, September 28th: Reception at Pier 26 for my two-month Guest Artist Residency at Pier 26.
September's Gallery Show: New Works
Rather than a 'theme' this month, the SFWA juried show asked for work not yet shown and completed in the past year. Above is Room 10, in an 18x24" black frame with white mat and was part of a series I shot in Trona town in California's southern desert region. Room 10 is part of an abandoned motel and provided a wonder of photographic sustenance.
In the Print Bin
An assortment of new and old this month. Matted in white at standard sizes, ready for your frames:
The Opening Reception is Thursday, September 7th 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.
And the culmination of a month's preparation opens Sunday Sept. 3 at the Troll House...
As announced in last month's Art News, I will be 'in residence' at Pier 26, also known as the Troll House [it's 'under the bridge'] on San Francisco's Embarcadero until the end of October. I plan to be there working on various projects most afternoons and early evenings, at least from Wednesdays through Sundays when possible, but in the course of two months, the schedule may change. I will be hanging 25 - 30 pieces on Saturday and be ready for labor Day weekend foot traffic and tourists on Sunday afternoon! If you would like to visit at a time other than the 28th, please contact me to make sure I will be there. I will definitely be there on Labor Day however, at least in the afternoon. So if you're walking along the Embarcadero, check if I'm there....
The 'Official' reception: Thursday, September 28th from 5:30 - 8:00pm with unframed works and cards available as well as the art on the wall. The Troll House is at PIer 26, on the Embarcadero between Harrison and Bryant. It's 1 block from the Folsom St. stop on the N, T or E lines or served by various busses.
If you're somewhat local, you can expect a reminder nearer the date....
New Works last month
As you may know I spent nearly three weeks in Peru in July/August, prior to which I visited the Twin Cities for a few days and a couple in the Wisconsin woods, so I've been working through the many, many photographs from those adventures. Many are now on my website. Here are just a few:
And of course 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.
Please forward this email if you think it would be of interest to anyone you know. And, of course, if you don't want to receive my nearly monthly announcements any more, you can unsubscribe below. Previous newsletter editions are available here.
