Creating Impressions: Prints from the Collection of David Kabakoff

There is a collector’s talk with David Kabakoff at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 16 at Kala Gallery in Berkeley focusing on the exhibition “Creating Impressions: Prints from the Collection of David Kabakoff,” which runs from December 5, 2019 through January 25, 2020. My wood engraving “Print Shop” was one of the first prints that David acquired and started him collecting. The exhibit shows a portion of the entire collection (which numbers over 700 prints), but features prints from the 1600s to today and includes major figures in the history of printmaking. I am proud that my print was chosen to advertise this show!kabakoff

Upcoming St. Helena show


, ,

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.
