July 2017 
Sadly, this update announces that my studio building is CLOSING! Unfortunately the remaining 20+ artists at Workspace are being displaced for higher paying tenants. Please join the final dozen artists as we host a Closing Studios and art sale, next Friday night and Saturday afternoon (please see below for details). On a hopeful note, I am working hard to develop a new group studio space somewhere in the city. Please let me know if you can offer organizational or granting skills that could help make this happen. 

In the good news department, my RISE UP! poster is displayed in the Our Summer of Love and Resistance exhibit at the Avenue12 Gallery, San Francsico. The opening/artist reception is tomorrow, Saturday, from 5–8pm (the show runs through August 27).

When you get a chance, I'd love it if you checked out recent updates to my website. In addition to posting some new work, I've also added an Activist Art page with a few of my kinetic sculptures, and a number of works from the archives.

As always, scroll down to find the details on
 how you can meet up with me and where you can find my artwork, articles and books.

"A group exhibition of Bay Area artists… as part of San Francisco’s 50th year commemoration of the Summer of Love, Avenue 12 Gallery is proud to provide a place where Bay Area artists can connect with the community by showing their work in response to the current political environment. As was true of the 60’s, it is our belief that now is the time for art to provide an emotional release, the energy to move dialogue forward, and provide a sense of meaning to hope and struggle. Original artwork in a variety of mediums, as well as fine art prints, will be available." —Avenue 12 Gallery
