California’s Wild Edge
February 13, 2016 – June 6, 2016
The exhibition captured the beauty of the California coast from Mendocino, Point Reyes, and the San Francisco Bay down through Carmel, Big Sur, Santa Barbara, and Santa Monica. Woodcut artist Tom Killion’s prints combine exquisite color with dynamic composition to portray the coast’s ever-changing moods and diverse formations: storm tides crashing at Point Lobos, serene moonlit coves at Mendocino, fog encircling the Golden Gate Bridge.
Deepening our experience was poetry and prose from Gary Snyder (co-author of California’s Wild Edge) and other well-known California poets of the past and present. The exhibition was originated by the San Francisco Public Library and was based on a new Heyday book by the same title, released summer 2015.
