I was recently selected by Jeremy Morgan, professor of Painting at San Francisco Art Institute, to be a part of a show titled “Abstract” at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts. Mr. Morgan’s work has been exhibited internationally, including at the China National Academy of Fine Arts, Hangzhou; Institute of Contemporary Art, London; and the Royal Academy of Arts, London.
Here is the piece to be exhibited from March 24th to April 30th:
Ezero 7, 2010, acrylic on panel, 18″ x 24″
The Sebastopol Center for the Arts’ goal is to offer exhibition opportunities to artists from Sonoma County, the Bay Area as well as work by artists throughout California. Their exhibitions are often augmented with lectures, panel discussions, workshops and demonstrations to educate and further enhance the public’s engagement with the arts.
I recently came accross a photo, and an article in Curbed online magazine, in which New York design editor Wendy Goodman visits Dawnridge, the Beverly Hills, California, estate once owned and lived in by the late American decorator and jewelry designer Tony Duquette. A ’60s portrait of Duquette by my grandmother, Marion Pike, who was Duquette’s lifelong friend, can be seen hanging in the living room above the sofa.
