Join me at the Adobe Books Backroom Gallery (map) in San Francisco where I'll be presenting a new seven by twenty-five foot cyanotype installation that is a visual paean to bookstores as muffled refuges from city life, casinos for serendipitous encounters with the perfect book, overstuffed menus of insights to acquire, and reflections of all that we hold dear.
The installation reproduces the state of Adobe Books’ bookshelves on the afternoon of June 6, 2016. Each shelf is available to purchase individually or together as a complete bookcase.
In addition to the opening and closing receptions, I will be hosting two events:
Come join me for my solo show at Four Barrel Coffee, where I'll be displaying 78 drawings from my Compositions series, 50 of them for the first time publicly, along with two studies from my Screens series that I am showing for the first time (and are not on my website yet).
I'm excited and grateful to begin a residency at the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California. While at Kala I'll be producing archival pigment prints of my Compositions drawings, experimenting with some new screen printing techniques using chalk pastels, and I hope to develop some intaglio prints that are still to be determined.
If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, check out some of the classes at Kala. Over the last year I have taken several - intaglio, relief printing, screen printing, and photopolymer gravure - and they've all been great. Happy printing! -J
