An online group art exhibit

Virtual opening on October 2nd, 2020 @ 6pm

The Pacific Art League in Palo Alto presents its 99th anniversary exhibit: Beyond 20/20

"Our Beyond 20/20 exhibit is the year’s biggest fundraiser and a chance for individual artists to shine and aim to win a month-long solo show; generous commission, and cash prizes. Our expert jurors are acclaimed artists Chun-Hui Yu and Ric Ambrose. We hope Beyond 20/20 can be a showcase for how art can inspire, connect, and engage our whole community at a time when so many have been kept in isolation and disengaged.

Here is the piece I submitted for the show:

A message from the Pacific Art League

"Our annual Anniversary Exhibit is PAL's biggest fundraiser of the year - and this year it is even more vital.

  • We invite you to support what we think is one of the most important exhibitions and community events we have staged in nearly 100 years here at the Pacific Art League.

  • Beyond 20/20 is a show for our times and the future, an opportunity for artists to express, for a community to engage, and for an arts organization to connect. 

  • Please consider making a monetary donation. Your donation will go to supporting Pacific Art League's mission "Art for All" as we look forward to continuing to serve artists, instructors and students in the local community, and beyond.

  • We have created a fund to encourage artists who are not able to afford the submission fee to be supported by donors willing to cover the fee on their behalf at the $100 donation level. 

  • We hope Beyond 20/20 can also be a showcase for how art can inspire, connect, and engage our whole community at a time when so many have been kept in isolation and disengaged."

You can donate here.

An online group photography exhibit

September 22 – October 30, 2020

Gray Loft Gallery is pleased to present "The Meaning of Green", their annual photography show selected by Ann M. Jastrab, independent curator, photography consultant, editor, writer; and Jan Watten, founder of Gray Loft Gallery. Due to the world-wide pandemic, this exhibit will be held as a virtual online exhibit of green inspired images from a wide array of traditional and alternative photographic processes – including pinhole photography, images made with plastic cameras, cyanotypes, collage, and other photo-based works by Bay Area photographers.
