In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" in nature. It is prevalent throughout all forms of Japanese art.

O’Hanlon Center for the Arts is a unique community-focused nonprofit art center located on two acres at the base of Marin County’s Mount Tamalpais. From a rich history in a beautiful setting, O’Hanlon Center has much in common with other California artists’ colonies founded in the early and mid 20th century. To honor the cultural legacy of Ann and Dick O’Hanlon, the Center strives to give back in new and innovative ways to the artists, art lovers, writers, and performers who inspire and support us.

Marinwood Fall Art Show
Marinwood Community Center

Marinwood, Ca.

I've also been invited to exhibit with 40 other artists in the Marinwood Annual Fall Art Show. It is scheduled for Saturday, October 22, 2022 from 3:00-7:00 p.m. and admission is free! There will be some finger-food and wine.

This show's theme is “Form & Color” and the juror is Suzanne Gray of the Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley. 

The Marinwood area is part of an original Spanish Land Grant to Don Timateo Murphy. It was operated as a ranch, and then as a dairy farm, until it was sold for development in 1954.

In 1955, the first homes were built near Highway 101, then a four-lane undivided highway. At that time the boundaries of San Rafael were four miles to the south, at the top of Puerto Suello Hill, and the boundaries of Novato were six miles to the north. To provide improved local services, particularly fire protection, and to be able to secure bond financing, the Community Services District was formed in 1960. With bond funding, the CSD was able to purchase the land for Marinwood Park and to develop the firehouse, park, community center and pool.

In 1972, the community again voted to tax itself for the purchase of the ridge of open space bordering the community in order to preserve it from development. The original purchase of 321 acres has grown to 812 acres as additional parcels were purchased and developers were required to set aside land as open space.
