Linda Hopwood will show her work on the PAL wall Upstairs at the Firehouse Arts Center, 4444 Railroad Ave., Pleasanton from September 26 to October 20. 

The Architectural Stoneware of native son Josh Latkin is being exhibited at the LAA Gallery, now and until the weekend after Thanksgiving. He was first introduced to ceramics in 1972 at Granada High School in Livermore where he chose electives such as ceramics, jewelry, photography and sculpture. It was at this time that he did some experimenting on slab work for ceramic vessels. 

Gina Kaiper and Judy Rice, Home & Abroad 

After years of working as a general engineering contractor, owning a restaurant, fabricating with metal, and of course, raising a family, he signed up for a ceramics workshop in 2011 and then started a new and unique style of ceramic vessels. Josh uses very exclusive methods for his stoneware process; he combines engineering and natural processes to produce vessels inspired by classic storage containers such as the earliest food storage pots made in Central America. The pieces are constructed with slabs of clay, then assembled using gravity and some engineered stands. The sizes of each vessel defy description. Come to the LAA Gallery and see Josh Latkin’s wild imagination blended with practicality. 

Josh will be the guest artist at our November 12th LAA & PAL General Meeting at the Bothwell.

John Trimingham will show his acrylic paintings at Panama Bay Coffee, 2115 First Street, Livermore until November 15.

“I am not a trained artist. I currently belong to the Pleasanton Art League and the Livermore and Alameda Art Associations. I work with acrylic on canvas but on occasions I use acrylic with plaster on burlap.  My work is always on display at the Alameda Art Association gallery in Alameda California.

“Most of my work is contemporary abstract and mid century (atomic art as it might be called in Palm Springs). I don’t paint because I hope to inspire people or provide them with a religious or out of body experience. I just like to paint.”
