Exhibit at the Coyote Point Museum


As the summer progresses, I continue to work on the South Bay Salt Pond project. The last week or so was focused on mounting an exhibit of photographs at the Coyote Point Museum in San Mateo, California. It was great fun putting this together. The general theme fell out of my recent work assembling a collage of colors and textures from my salt pond photographs. The final exhibit contains an introductory panel and 50 photographs.

The SALT PONDS: A Bird’s Eye View of Colors and Textures in South San Francisco Bay runs from 7 July to 1 September. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by and take a look. Be forewarned that this involves an entrance fee for the Coyote Point Park ($5/car) and the museum itself ($7/adult), both worthy causes and pleasant spots.

My Son Thomas edited a brief (< 3 minutes) trailer for the exhibit which we have posted to YouTube. It shows just how fast an exhibit can come together.

I have also posted small versions of the SALT PONDS exhibit in an online gallery. Give it a browse if you have the time.

    Hi there. I watched with interest as you hung the paintings in your exhibit. What did you use to mark the midline of the exhibit on the wall? Had you marked the pictures center point to match the midline wall marking.
    I have never seen such fast horizontal hanging. I believe that you used hangers (or at least I saw a hammer), but I did not see the pounding of nails as you hung.
    I would be most grateful to hear of your techniques as I have a show to hang and this is by far the easiest method I have seen. What am I missing and how would you hand poster sized panels. The same way?
    Thanks ever so much.
