Sea Fern Studio and I will be participating in two events this fall 2018- the 25th annual Labor Day Art Walk in Toledo on Sep 1,2,3 (Fri, Sat, Sun).  I will have a nice variety of gyotaku, plant prints, and a few kelp items, as well as some other nature items for sale.  Hours are 10-5 daily, and many other galleries in Toledo are open for this annual event.

Later in the month I will be participating in the Corvallis Fall Festival Sat, Sep 22 from 10-6 and Sunday, Sep 23 from 10-5 in Central Park (650 NW Monroe) in Corvallis.  Again I will have a selection of original gyotaku and nature printed seaweeds and plants.

Then I will be getting ready for the Art in the Governor’s Office exhibit planned for December 2018 to Jan 2019.  I was selected last year for this honor of the Oregon Arts Commission.
