Upcoming show at the Faulkner Gallery

February 23, 2014

hansenstandbackI am getting ready down to the wire finishing new work to go in my show at the Faulkner Gallery. The gallery is located at the Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 E. Anapumu, in downtown Santa Barbara. I am excited to be hanging a solo show. It is called Faces and Places and will be a mix of old work and new, both portraits and landscapes. The picture here is of my son and daughter in law waiting for a trolley in San Francisco. it is entitled “Stand Back From Edge”. ┬áMy newest piece is of a warehouse in Carpinteria that exists only in photos and in people’s memory. It used to be a Bean packing house owned by the Fish brothers. I have an old burlap sack that was from that era. When I was growing up it was the headquarters of Bliss trucking. I have a photo of an old truck inside the old building. This piece depicts that building in a rather dilapidated state right off the railroad right of way. It is still being quilted, but I will try to post a photo as soon as it is done, early next week.
My show will be on for the month of March, from the 1st to the 30th, 2014. Do come and see it.
