  • The Treasures Carried Forward

    LT | Oct 30, 2014

    The aftermath of an Open Studios can be a bit unnerving. More than a month of intense work goes into this major weekend production. The two days whirl by quickly with noisy expectations all around. Strangers arrive to view art, to ask questions, to opine, and perhaps to buy. By Sunday at 5pm the artists are exhausted.

    LT | Sep 29, 2014

    A few years back I met Linda Salter when helping install her solo exhibit at Avenue 25 Gallery in San Mateo.

    The tap-tap bang-bang next door has a new tempo with a smooth swoosh-swoosh added these days. One of the remarkable aspects of an art complex is that the creativity never stops. Not only do artists continue to shift in their work, but, in a larger context, artists shift in their lives. We can now add Studio #28 to the list of vitally shifting artist spaces at PAI.

    LT | Jul 7, 2014

    “Well, I’m off!” Kevyn Warnock shouted, grinning at me mid-twist as she shut her studio door.

    “Wait! Where to?”

    “Easy-peasy” was the response, and she was gone.

  • New Vistas for Robin Clark

    LT | Jun 2, 2014

    I am grumbling to myself here. The mysterious, mystical, warmly forceful energy of Robin Clark no longer drifts by my studio door. The photographer/painter has moved her studio south to a more intimate location.

    LT | May 20, 2014

    Wood sculptor Bob Wilkinson recently made the choice to move his mallet and chisels home after a long career at 1870 Art Center (Belmont) and here at the Peninsula Art Institute.
