Just For You Gallery of Fine Art Exhibition

You are invited to the newest gallery in Healdsburg, California!  Just For You Gallery Of Fine Art will be hosting a solo exhibition of 16 of my newest pieces with an Artist Reception on Friday, March 18 from 5-9pm.  The gallery is located on the downtown square at 115 Plaza Street.  My newest work will be featured in a variety of stones such as:  Argentine Onyx, Persian Onyx, Mexican Fluorite, Utah Calcite, Anhydrite, Banded Onyx, Adventurine Quartz and Brucite to name a few.  The piece pictured above is carved from Chinese Fluorite.  It is titled APLOMP which means 'Self Confidence' and it measures 11in.x 6in.x 3in.  Also, a "Meet & Greet the Artist" is scheduled for Saturday, March 19 from 1-5pm.  I will be doing a demonstration and talking about where I find my stone, carving tools and techniques and my 30th Year as a Professional Sculptor.  The winery, Kelley & Young, will be pouring the evening of Friday, March 18.  The new owners of the gallery, Bryon & Helen Karow, are excited to invite you to their new space.  They have remodeled the old R.S. Basso space on the square and it is now an excellent showplace for contemporary art.  I'm proud to be chosen as their first Artist Exhibition in the new space.  Congratulations to the Karow's!

Transparent & Opaque


Why do I do that? Do you ever think about why you do whatever it is you do? I always know why I sculpt; it's a part of me, it's my passion. But I'm realizing even more why I translate the designs differently in different types of stone. The boulders I carve fall into two categories: Transparent Stone or Opaque Stone. I try to take the edges of the transparent stone designs as thin as possible to achieve light through my pieces. However, the opaque stone allows me to create bolder edges and form various angles. Rain or shine today, I've been very busy in my studio. I hope you are doing what you love to do.
