April Updates

Hello Friends,

It’s already April and I am over the moon excited about all the great things happening for me this month.

The biggest news is that I will have a number of images on display in the Alan Klotz Gallery booth at the AIPAD Photography Show in New York City. The Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) will host their 35th annual show from April 16th to April 19th at the Park Avenue Armory.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the exhibition so please visit Alan in Booth #315 to say hello. If you visit please take a picture of the display and post it online using the hash tag #AKT@AIPAD

Join me this Saturday. For I shall rock!

This is your last chance to see this show! We will be having a great time celebrating our achievements. There will be a special sound performance by The Buddy HollyCo$t plus special guest.


Cultural heritage, personal identity and ecological responsibility are among the themes explored in an eclectic exhibition of contemporary art that will go on display at the National Orange Show Art Gallery Sept. 28.
The exhibit will run through Oct. 26.

“Transduction: Eight as One” will feature works by William Christensen, Jay Dawes, Mayte Escobar, Price Hall, Humberto Reynoso, Andrew K. Thompson, A.E. Van Fleet and Nao Yamamoto, all of whom are graduate students in the Cal State San Bernardino Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art and Design program.

The work will be in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography, glass, ceramics, video and installation art.

The exhibition provides a site for considering the complexity of the world we live in; presented in artworks that are produced by eight talented emerging artists who are responding to their own experience of our times.

The exhibition includes some artworks with mature content that may not be appropriate for children.

The National Orange Show Art Gallery is at 689 South E St., San Bernardino, and gallery hours are Friday and Saturday, noon-6 p.m. or by appointment.

This project is made possible by a Fine Arts Grant from the City of San Bernardino Fine Arts Commission.
