"All Figured Out" at Village Theatre Art Gallery in Danville CA

The opening of the show in Danville last week was very well attended in spite of the 105 degree heat!
We took this photo of me standing next to my entry.
The only disappointment was that Rene Di Cassio, the Juror for the show got sick and couldn't attend to give her talk on her choices for the show.

Solo Show Opening At Cafe Arrivaderci in San Rafael, CA

A Room of Curiosities

Make a trip to San Rafael California, enjoy some wonderful Italian food at Cafe Arrivaderci and take a look at my room of Curiosities, paintings, mixed media and small curiosity boxes. All around the theme of the Wunderkammer or Room of Curiosities, borrowed from the display rooms of the nobility and merchant class during the  European Renaissance. The Wunderkammer was the bridge between the world of religion and superstition and the world of science. Wunderkammers evolved into the beginnings of museums of art and science,  and the carnival side show on the other extreem.
The art in this show takes in two related themes,  the Mythology of the fall, and the science of the modern "Fall" in the loss of our Paradise in the form of environmental degradation. The images can be beautiful, haunting, humorous and disturbing and all are inviting you to draw your own conclusions.

The art is on display in the front dining room 
by the main entrance

March 30th through April 25th
