Excellent show! “California in Relief: A History in Wood and Linocut Prints”, at the Hearst Art Gallery at St. Mary’s College, Moraga, California. I hate to admit it, but I had never been there before. It’s quit beautiful and the gallery is terrific. Art Hazelwood spent the past five years curating a most excellent, interesting, and informative show!

Toothbrushes off to Cal Expo, the California State Fair!

Selecting and documenting toothbrushes for Cal Expo to display

Selecting and documenting toothbrushes for Cal Expo to display

I spent nearly a week rummaging through half of the International Toothbrush Collection selecting a wide variety of toothbrushes ~ except the standing toothbrushes are already in one display case and the vernacular chew sticks in another ~ for the Cal Expo folks to display as they see fit. In all, about 300 toothbrushes from over 2,000 will be on display in the Wild, Weird, and Wacky Collections portion of the California State Fair. The State Fair, Cal Expo, has two websites! Big Fun and Cal Expo. Go figure!
