The van Erp Exhibit: Dirk van Erp Copper Shop has been extended and will be on view through January 18th. There are over two hundred pieces of the studio's work on exhibit. It's been great fun for me to gather and live with these pieces over the last forty years and now be able to share it all. I hope many more people will take the opportunity while it is here to come and see so much fine San Francisco copper gathered together in one place. For some unknown reason, our museums haven't accomplished that yet. But I have: here, for a short time. For a long time, I've want to see to it that this core grouping remains together for the public to see well after I have left the scene...That means I have to locate a museum which wants to house it, but first, I need to get museums interested in seeing it... I've invited curators from the De Young and the Legion of Honor here in San Francisco. Now I'll reach out to other museums, the Museum of Modern Art here, The Oakland Museum, and any others you out there might suggest. I'm focused on the Bay Area first. Those of you who feel the same about this exhibit, please feel free to call these museums and suggest they come see to the exhibit and then, perhaps consider acquiring it and giving the collection a permanent home. Thanks.
