David M Bowman Studio
Patinaed Brass Metalwork
July 2022 we are participating in the Mixed Doubles show at ACCI Gallery in Berkeley. The show features collaborative works between ACCI artists (and a few guests), with a lot of great works resulting. Our contribution is a foldformed chess set, for which we made a patinaed chess board which was set in its own table by Peter Howkinson. We are very proud of the result. The show is open till 30 July.
Thanks to everyone who came to see our 50 Year Retrospective show at ACCI Gallery in Berkeley. Through the month of May 2022, ACCI Gallery hosted a show to celebrate the 50th anniversary of David's start as a full-time professional craftsperson. We exhibited 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.
