Bakers Dozen 2007

Quicksilver Presents the Work
of 13 Bay Area Artists

January 26 - March 4, 2007

The Quicksilver Mine Co. will present Bakers Dozen 2007, the Gallery's annual group exhibition featuring the work of 13 different artists. Beginning on January 26th, this Show will continue through March 4th.

This year Bakers Dozen 2007 features sculptors, mixed-media artists, fine woodworkers and painters all using wood in some manner or form in their artwork.

Exquisite handmade "Nantucket" baskets by New England artist Lawrence Wheeler, Robert Gauthier's large and wonderful turned vases, two and three dimensional assemblage by Monty Monty, Bill Rivas and Judson Smith, and Claudia Chapline's witty sculptures made entirely out of found and recycled discards will be included in this year's Show.

Bakers Dozen 2007 will also present mixed media paintings by Oakland artist Michael Grbich and Angwin's Thomas Morphis, fine art furniture and sculpture by Sonoma County woodworkers James Stadig and Fabrice Landa, and wonderful functional pieces made from recycled wood by Bill Baldewicz and Jefferson Rice.

Rounding out the Show, and filling the center of the Gallery floor will be a 16-foot kayak made of fine hardwood created by Robert LeRoy of Forestville.

A reception for the artists of Bakers Dozen 2007 will be held on Saturday, January 27th from 46pm.
