Since 1979, East Bay artists have thrown open the doors of their studios in concert to welcome visitors to tour their work spaces and buy art directly from the maker during Open Studio weekends. For this -my first!- Open Studio event, I will be assisting artist Jane Norling, my earliest ambassador to the Bay’s art scene when we arrived here last autumn, at her newly reopened studio on Lakeshore Ave in Oakland.
Since moving out to Oakland, I have been doing arts consulting work with some really great local artists. On Thursday, a solo exhibit for one of those artists opens along with the premier of the exhibit catalog, which I designed!

Through a remarkable array of rare books, manuscripts, and artifacts from the collection of Jay (’77) and Eileen (’76, ’78) Walker, this exhibition showcases imagination as a driving force throughout history and celebrates the adventure of discovery, learning, and creativity. Collecting Imagination features such treasures as an original Soviet Sputnik alongside a U.S. Vanguard satellite, a cuneiform cone from 2000 BC, and a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible. This exhibit marks the first time an extensive selection of objects from this unique private collection has been on public view.

You’ve seen her murals around campus — now she’s rediscovered in a new book
Published in the Cornell Chronicle
By Gwen Glazer
Jillian Piccirilli ’08 formed a close relationship with a woman she’ll never meet: Alison Mason Kingsbury, an accomplished artist, dedicated Ithacan and wife of Cornell historian and professor Morris Bishop.
Alison Jolly, the artist’s daughter, began working with Piccirilli in 2008 to create a complete catalog of her mother’s work. The catalog grew into a book, “The Art and Life of Alison Mason Kingsbury,” published in 2010 by Cornell University Library.
To celebrate the publication of The Art & Life of Alison Mason Kingsbury by Jillian Piccirilli, Cornell Library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections will host a one-day exhibition of the artist’s collection.
