Wouldn't you like to? - Opening at Adobe Books Backroom Gallery, August 5, 2016

Posted July 26, 2016

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:

  • Cyanotpye Workshop, Sunday, August 14, 12-3pm:
    I will host a hands-on cyanotype workshop at the Backroom Gallery, so ready yourself with images and materials to immortalize in beautiful blue prints. For more details, contact me.

  • Local Writers Reading, Thursday, August 18, 6-8pm:
    San Francisco writers curated by Noah Sanders will read original short-form fiction and nonfiction.

80 Drawings - Opening at Four Barrel Coffee February 5, 2016

Posted January 19, 2016

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).

In Residence at the Kala Art Institute - December 2015 Through February 2016

Posted December 9, 2015

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
