Last Saturday, I exhibited printmaking and watercolors at Art on Palm in Altadena, California. I hadn’t attended the show before, but my friends Catherine & Ovie Cowles, who are also artisans, organize the event, and they’ve been telling me about it for years. The venue is absolutely gorgeous: a single-lane entry drive dips into a canyon of private Arts & Crafts homes built 70-100 years ago. The residents host this event, as the booths of the 40 participating artists occupy their only road, their oak tree lined yards and river rock entryways. It’s incredibly generous, since the noise, presence of yakking artists (and cars while we unload gear) as well as the attending public during the event, must be an all-consuming intrusion. Each home owner was very kind and welcoming, and it was a wonderful show. Hearty thank you’s to my patrons who came out to listen to music, marvel at the beauty of Henry Greene’s architecture under the palms and oaks, and buy art.
A short article and a video clip about Art on Palm was published in Pasadena Now. You can read it here and watch the video below:
