Join us if you can for tomorrow’s Open House in Eugene. This event highlights new work by me and two other gallery artists, Suzanne Linquist and Mihara Shibori. We will be meeting and greeting between 11 AM and 3 PM and speaking about our work, too. Our local newspaper, the Register Guard, included a feature about this event in yesterday’s Arts section.
I have published a new book through Blurb that documents all of my new work at White Lotus and at Cha-ya, my latest venue, located in Monterey, California. The book is available for free download as an e-book. Enjoy the book!
Max Nixon inspired me to become a metalsmith and a jewelry artist. That was back in 1992 when he was artist-in-residence at the University of Oregon’s Craft Center. Today, eighteen years after his death, we are finally paying homage to him as a teacher, colleague, and friend, in the exhibit “Max Nixon Legacy Metalwork” at White Lotus Gallery, 767 Willamette Street, in Eugene, Oregon. The show opens tomorrow, Saturday, October 27, 2018.
At the time of his death, Max’s “legacy metalwork” — pieces he held on to representing many years of creativity in a variety of materials and techniques, and those he made for his beloved wife Hattie Mae — are on display and being offered for purchase. The exhibit runs until November 27, 2018. See the illustrated catalog at Blurb.com. Print copies are available at the gallery.
Thank you, Max Nixon, for your inspiration, power of persuasion, and boundless patience!

It’s here, ready to give you a preview of the new jewelry that will be showcased at the White Lotus Gallery’s Winter 2017 Open House on Saturday, December 2, 11 AM until 3 PM.
