Alders Show Highlights

October 1-31 at Blake's Books in McKinleyville
Alders in our area have been regarded as trash trees, as something to knock down to get at the more profitable redwoods. This has been their reality, despite their beauty and the wonderful acoustic properties of the wood.

Fifteen images from the original Alders Show are on display at Blake's Books in McKinleyville.

Hal Work

“June of 2011, I was asked to prepare a show for The Upstairs Gallery at Umpqua Bank in Arcata. Finally, in December I started planning for it, deciding what to feature and in January, it came to me: Alders.” Spending the next five months shooting, Work has completed 24 pieces featuring the often decried tree. “They have been regarded as trash trees, as something to knock down to get at the more profitable redwoods. This has been their reality, despite their beauty and the wonderful acoustic properties of the wood."

The Caffenol Show

April 18 - May 11. There will be a catered reception on Saturday, May 5 starting at 6pm in the back upstairs gallery ofn the Redwood Art Association's Gallery at 633 F St in Eureka

Caffenol

In 1995, students at the Rochester Institute of Technology discovered that film could be developed in coffee. Since then, Caffenol was developed which is comprised of coffee, vitamin C, and washing soda.


Dave Schumaker, Stilson Snow, and I shot twenty roll of B&W film, digitized the images, and worked our darkroom magic for this show.
