The upcoming solo show in Napa Valley will run from October 1 through October 31 at the St. Helena Public Library, with an opening reception and artist’s talk on October 10 at 7 p.m. The show will consist of my latest woodcuts, including the 14 ft. long installation of “Generation.” Consisting of six panels, this woodcut portrays a series of high and low pressure systems starting at Mt. Everest, the generation point, and oscillating over the northern Pacific Ocean until ultimately determining the direction of the winds at the San Francisco coast.
The large 6-color reduction woodcut “Orinda Fog” will be exhibited at the 7th Annual California Centered Printmaking Exhibition, running April 17 through June 28 in Merced, CA. “California Centered” is a juried exhibition series hosted by the Merced County Arts Council. I’m also working on a 14′ long woodcut that I hope to finish in time for a one-person show in St. Helena, CA, coming up in October of this year.
The 2013 Codex Conference is fast approaching. In addition to recent wood engravings and woodcuts, I will be showing my new book, Entropic Oscillations: a weather story. It consists of a 4″ x 24″ wood engraving overlaid with 5 separate silkscreens depicting how the weather emanates from the Himalayas and travels across the Pacific Ocean to the coast of San Francisco.
I’ll be exhibiting at the 2013 Codex Conference and Exhibition from February 11 through 14, 2013. The Codex Foundation exists to preserve and promote the hand-made book as a work of art and bring attention to the importance and value of book arts in transmitting cultural history. Events will be held at Richmond Point in the East Bay and in Berkeley.
“The Fledgling Artist” and “Moss Log” will be on exhibit at the 75th Annual Exhibition of the Society of Wood Engravers.
