Currently I am showing my latest woodcut, “The Pink Tree” at the 2019-2020 Artists’ Annual Exhibition at Kala Gallery in Berkeley. The exhibit will be up until the end of February. Also showing at Kala is “Creating Impressions: Prints from the Collection of David Kabakoff” through January 25.

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!
Kala Art Institute in Berkeley is having a summer sale in the print room, Thursday, July 25, Friday, July 26, and Saturday, July 27. I will have a number of pieces there at a discount.
Hours for the sale are 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, noon to 7 p.m. on Friday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Also, this fall I will be included in an exhibit of a major collector of prints, David Kabakoff, at the Kala Gallery. Details to follow!

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.
