*Exhibit* August 2019 Crab Cove Visitor Center , Alameda

I had one photo (my favorite Amanita mushrooms) selected for the first ever Crab Cove Photography Exhibition. The images are mainly from local parks. They will be available for viewing weekends in August. 

*Exhibit* August 10, 2019. Richmond in Focus Exhibit: Richmond Museum.

Opening Reception on August 10th, from 2-4. I'll have five images from Wildcat Canyon on display. Not sure how long the exhibit will run. I'll add details when I have them!

Past Events

March 24, 2019. Kensington Farmers Market.

This will be my second time selling at the Kensington Farmers Market. Come by the booth and say Hi!

April 20, 2019. Garden Art and Native Plant Extravaganza, Point Richmond.

This event is part of the Bringing Back the Natives series, my first event with this important organization. Native plants typically require less water and support a greater diversity of insects and birds. Head to Watershed Nursery,  buy some plants for your yard, and pick up a card while you are there! A portion of the proceeds goes to Bringing Back the Natives.                                

April 27, 2019. Gyuto Foundation Cherry Blossom Spring Festival

Details now available! This world renown Buddhist foundation in East Richmond Heights is celebrating spring with a series of workshops and events, and as a thank you to the neighborhood, they are inviting local vendors too! Gyuto was an important partner in the East Richmond Heights Art and Music Festival, something near and dear to my heart not only for being an exuberant expression of neighborhood spirit in our small unincorporated neck of the woods but also for being the big launch of Alan Krakauer Photography. Very much looking forward to this festival for the gorgeous locale looking out over Wildcat Canyon and because my wife will be premiering her jewelry sales as well! Lauri has been crafting beautiful earrings as gifts for family and friends for years, and now wants to share her beautiful bead, button, lace, and Japanese washi paper designs with the world!              

10AM until 5PM

May 5, 2019. Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour, Moraga. (UPDATED)

This will be the second of two Bringing Back the Natives events for this spring. From 10AM - 5PM, I'll be at the garden of longtime participant Al and Barbara Kyte in Moraga. Along with my booth, there will be talks about the garden and about gardening for native bees. A portion of the proceeds from my sales will go to Bringing Back the Natives.

This is one of dozens of private gardens and nurseries opening their doors to promote the use of native plants.

Note that prior registration with Bringing Back the Natives is requested.  UPDATE: The Kyte garden is one of a select few accepting walk-in registrations!

June 8-9, 2019. East Bay Open Studio Weekend 1

Local artist Linda Ruiz-Lozito has generously allowed me to join her open studio as part of this large organized art tour (along with a third artist Tai Yee). Come enjoy refreshments and check out our work!

June 15-16, 2019. East Bay Open Studio Weekend 2

Second week of this widespread event.  Local artist Linda Ruiz-Lozito has generously allowed me to join her open studio (along with Tai Yee). Come enjoy refreshments and check out our work!

July 6, 2019. 12- 5pm. East Richmond Heights Art and Music Festival

For non-facebook links to the event, try here and here. The festival is FREE.

This is my neighborhood summer festival on Bernhard Ave between Kensington Ave and Cypress Ave. We're right next to the Gyuto Foundation so you can check out the monastery if you didn't make it to the Spring Cherry Blossom festival. 

Last year there were 25 booths along with a mini steam train and several food trucks. This year promises to be even bigger than last year, with more than 30 participating artists, more performance acts, and for the kids, a fire truck in addition to the mini steam train.

I'm very excited for this event since the launch of Alan Krakauer Photography was last year at the 2018 ERH Festival. This year will be especially fun since my wife Lauri will have her own booth with her fantastic hand-made earrings. Look for us near the Kensington Ave end of the festival, near our friends from the East Bay Open Studio Linda Ruiz-Lozito and Tai Yee.

July 13, 2019. Festooneries (closed event)

This is a private, invitation-only artist event. This is my first invitation and I'm looking forward to the show!
