Friend Julie Mullin (at the Long Beach Museum reception)
The primary reason for this trip was my participation in the exhibit at the Long Beach Museum of Art - NOVEL CONSTRUCTIIONS: CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS CREATE MONUMENTAL BOOKS. Below are a few images of work in the show. (My installation photos follow in the last post.)
Genie Shenk's "Ring"
Carol Shaw-Sutton's "Longitude"

Along the way we visited Balboa Island.
Lunch with cousins Bill Crawford and Lois Bub
A great day was spent with Julie in Santa Monica which included an appointment at the Lora Schlesinger Gallery in Bergamot Station, where 7 of my new collages were consigned and a visit to "Obsolete", an amazing gallery of antiquity - construction, collage, and photography. Time was spent on long beach walks in Del Mar and Encinitas. Water still too cold for dipping. California in the springtime was rich with many tones of green.
