June is here and the summer vacation is season is starting to ramp up. Lots of local art exhibits and fairs are happening in around the Bay Area and California. The local scene includes Open Studios in Oakland, CA the first two weekends of the month which is brought to us by Pro Arts. This is a great way of meeting local artists and seeing their work. Often times, you can get get some fabulous values on works created by these folks. Richmond Art Center will be featuring their Annual Member’s Show and also a exhibition of works by Terry St. John. These are also “must see” events to attend. In Sacramento, Red Dot Gallery will be having a “duo” exhibit of artwork created by mother and son, Dijana and Laurence Harding. I am heading up there this afternoon to see this show and hope to report back. They are both accomplished artists and friends.
In July and August, I will have a solo exhibit at Linda Parry’s new gallery in Benicia. I’m still working on a couple of pieces and will provide an update on the selections shortly. I will also be a featured artist in a show in Palm Springs at the Local Color Gallery. This is a wonderful space on E. Arenas in the downtown area and they feature lots of paintings, ceramics, and jewelry produced by artists living in the Coachella Valley area.
Last month I began exhibiting at Sarah Jessica Fine Arts in Provincetown, Massachusetts. “P-town” is the oldest artist colony in the United States and has been home to many famous artists over the years including Hans Hoffman and Henry Hensche, and was and still is one of the premier exhibition destinations for abstract expressionists and plein air artists. I am truly excited to be able to participate in this historic community.
More information to follow soon. I’m wishing everyone a safe and enjoyable summer season and hope you make it a point to see some beautiful art on your travels.
