SAVE THE DATE! MAY 2022: 50 Year Retrospective show at ACCI Gallery in Berkeley. For the month of May 2022, ACCI Gallery will host a show to celebrate the 50th anniversary of David's start as a full-time professional craftsperson. We will be exhibiting works from the whole history of the studio, as well as photographs and other historical artifacts and stories of 50 years of metalwork.
In May 2021 we took part in the First Biennial Art in the Garden Tour - a collaboration between Berkeley Garden Club and ACCI Gallery. The Garden Tour was part of ACCI's month-long exhibition titled "Bold Botanicals," featuring garden art and plant-based and plant-inspired works by ACCI member artists.
