Current Exhibitions:


October 10 through January 3, 2021
The de Young Open: On The Edge
The de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park
San Francisco, Ca.


As promised, the de Young Open is finally opening! The exhibition dates for The de Young Open are Saturday, October 10, 2020, through Sunday, January 3, 2021. I saw the premiere and it was incredible and very well-hung (unlike the sexual kind!). Amazing talent!

Some 6,190 artists who live in the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma, sent 11,518 artworks spanning painting, drawing, printmaking, digital art, photography, sculpture, fiber art and video. Every artwork image was reviewed anonymously multiple times by a group of qualified jurors who did not know the identities of the artists. The jurors included four Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco curators in charge --Timothy Anglin Burgard, Distinguished Senior Curator and Ednah Root Curator in Charge of American Art, headed a curatorial jury that included Claudia Schmuckli, Curator of Contemporary Art and Programming, and Karin Breuer, Curator in Charge of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts -- and three prominent Bay Area artists: Mildred Howard, Hung Liu, and Enrique Chagoya. Given the space limitations in the main exhibition galleries, the seven jurors were faced with the challenging task of selecting and accepting less than 8 percent of all the works submitted. 881 works by 763 artists were selected.

I'm absolutely THRILLED that "Mooring 28" will represent me in this dynamic exhibit!

Because of the limitations set for COVID capacity, the visitors will have 90 minute windows. FYI, there's a Frida Kahlo exhibit (Sept 25 - February 7th also running -- so this may take multiple museum visits which I'm sure hardcore art lovers don't mind!

October 19 - October 30, 2020
The 7th Marinwood Fall Art and Wine Show
"Home, The Third Time Is A Charm": A Virtual Exhibit

Marinwood, Ca.


In 2019, I had announced that I would be part of the Marinwood's 6th Annual Art Show & Wine Tasting Event called “Home" to benefit Marinwood Community Services. Unfortunately, Nature decided to have raging fires and PG&E instituted the blackouts -- the show was postponed. The next time around, the show was postponed yet again due to COVID19 precautions. This is the 3rd time; the organizers decided to have the show virtually with 43 or so invited artists.

I, personally, do not do Instagram nor Facebook which is why you get my emails.

Marinwood will begin posting on both Marinwood's Facebook and Instagram pages next Monday 10/19.

Marinwood will post five artists a day in no particular order until October 30th. For those of you that have either Facebook or Instagram accounts, you might want to "friend" or follow Marinwood Community Services District. The postings on Facebook will be shareable. For those that do not have Facebook or Instagram accounts you can go to the following links without signing up for accounts.

I'm told that in order for Facebook users to find and follow Marinwood on Facebook it is necessary to search for MarinwoodCSD

For those not on Facebook, Marinwood says that you can google: Marinwood CSD Facebook

"Mooring 29" will be posted 10/21 to represent me.
