California’s Wild Edge: Prints by Tom Killion

Description: 

Explore California’s wild coastal edge through stunning prints by Tom Killion (Cowell '75) and poetry. California’s coast is full of wild surprises. A snacking otter. An army of sand crabs beneath your feet. Crumbling cliffs. This exhibition invites you to explore California’s edge through prints by Tom Killion alongside poetry selected by Pulitzer prize-winning poet, Gary Snyder. The show will run January 12 to April 22. The exhibition opening reception is open to MAH members only; all are welcome to attend the exhibit.

Tom Killion was born and raised in Mill Valley, California, on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais. Since childhood, he was moved by the rugged scenery of Marin County and Northern California. Tom creates landscape prints using linoleum and wood, strongly influenced by the traditional Japanese Ukiyo-ë style of Hokusai and Hiroshige. This exhibition will feature a series of woodblock prints Tom made in honor of Santa Cruz County’s breathtaking landscapes. From Natural Bridges to Wilder Ranch, visit your favorite Santa Cruz coastal and woodland sanctuaries through Tom’s exquisite line work and crisp colors.
