Kid in a candy store

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

The new Bullseye Resource Center opened last month in Emeryville.  I waited until after the craziness of their grand opening to visit.  Yesterday, my friend Angel and I made the trek across the Bay to stock up on glass.  What a treat!  Instead of looking at tiny little squares on the web site and trying to figure out what the sheet would look like in real life, we got to pull out the actual sheets of glass and hold them up to the light.

 

I can’t wait to start creating with all my new glass!

They also had an inspiring exhibit, ACT 2 The Glass Track,  of pieces created by artists who began working in glass after careers in other fields.  The pieces were beautiful, and with some, you could really see a connection to their first careers.  I wonder if people will be able to tell from my work that I used to be a lawyer?

Collector Art Shop in Berkeley

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

I’m thrilled to have my art in a great gallery in Berkeley, Collector Art Shop (http://collectorartshop.com/).  The gallery focuses on “affordable original art” and their idea is to make art available to more people — a goal which I fully support!

In keeping with the theme, I placed several of my smaller recent landscapes at Collector:

as well as prints, note cards and magnets:

Next time you’re in Berkeley, stop by.  Collector is located on College Avenue in Elmwood, right next to Ici ice cream.  My work will be there through May 15.
