Memories in Wood and Paper
July 1 - August 1Free
The Artery presents striking Japanese fish prints (Gyotaku) by Christopher Dewees and superb wood carvings of Tom Thompson. With this exhibit, Chris honors his great, good friend, Tom who succumbed to COVID-19 in 2020.
Sharing their mutual passion for fishing and creating art, Chris and Tom enjoyed many years of angling from Tom’s old wooden boat on San Francisco Bay. Tom’s Wyoming retirement home also provided excellent river fishing for the pair. Chris would print fish they caught together and Tom would carve Chris’s catches, including those from New Zealand, California, and Mexico. The Artist Reception is Friday, July 8, 7-9 pm.
