Currently in our annex space we have a small exhibition of the amazing quilt work of Pennsylvania artist Peggy Blei Hracho. Her larger quilts are based on photographs from the artist’s childhood, and feature a stunning level of detail. The smaller works are based on “selfies” and, again, feature shocking levels of detail.

New Long-Term Exhibition in Richmond, Coming Soon


Catholic Charities is set to open a new huge community services center at 217 Harbor Way in Richmond. The renovation of the building is spectacular, the offered services desperately needed.

So, we were honored and delighted when they asked us to provide a long-term exhibition of our art for their space.

As we mentioned, the space is enormous so it needed more art than we could carry or deliver in a car. And we turned to our pals at Clif Bar. This Emeryville-based company for the last two years and purchased our work for their corporate collection, and provided us with event space for our annual fundraiser Win Win. This time, they again came through… loaning us a truck and a worker. Thanks a lot, Clif Bar!

(Above is Clif Bar’s Jeff Hantman getting ready to tie down the art before delivery.)
