Current Year Calendar 2021
Cover Art: Ice Cave ©2020
I enjoy starting each new year with a new calendar. I have been creating calendars for the past ten years. You will see several here starting with the current year 2021 which focuses mainly on my themes of climate awareness and urban landscape.
We had a fantastic Art Exhibit where each of us had a separate room to display our work at the YWCA in Berkeley. Who We Are included Marla Fibish who did fabulous contemporary quilts. Matt Kowalski’s work included strong elements of building materials shapes with bold colors. The three of us had work was quite different from each other but worked well ensemble. At our opening reception Marla delighted all our viewers with Mandolin and song. Marvelous addition to our senses. Marla now concentrates on her music. Along with her husband gives concerts in the bay area and across the US. Matt and his wife moved to Michigan where he continues his art work.
When I returned to the Bay Area in 2005 after years away in France and Colorado, I wanted to do art that reflected the Bay Area, particularly Oakland. Bay Bridge was the first and Lake Merritt by Night was the second. I am sure many more will come tumbling out in the near future.
The majority of the original art featured on these calendars’ covers has previously been sold. The only exceptions are Ice Cave which has not yet been seen in public except when photographed in July 2020, Ice Arch and Bay Bridge.
