On Monday I wended my way north to Oakland, my old stomping grounds, to hang a new show at Creative Framing & Gallery. I’ve known owner Heather Piazza for a few years now, first through the Frank Bette Center in Alameda, and then through Four Oceans Press, an independent print and publishing company. So I was delighted when she asked if I’d like to have a solo show at her shop. Yes, please!
Here are the boxes of prints, ready to be unloaded and hung.
Hanging is not always easy. Heather says “Darn painting; why won’t it hang straight?”
I thought I had brought too much work, but there are lots of interesting nooks and walls, and I just barely had enough. Here’s one corner:
And a space near the front window. I can count nine brand new pieces in this photo, and overall, there are 13 new prints and paintings. I’ve been busy!
I am obviously very pleased with the way the show looks.
