Exhibition & Publication: Datz Museum in Seoul, South Korea
Through February 17, 2019
Twenty-one works from Invocation and Sanctuary were on display in this 4-person exhibition at the Datz Museum in Seoul, South Korea. Titled “Journey of Transformation,” the show also included the work of Bryant Austin, Minny Lee, and Hendrik Paul. Click here to read my blog post about this exhibit.
In addition, there is a publication celebrating the nine artists who have shown recently at the Datz Museum, called Process & Attitude. It includes a wide selection of my work, plus a very thoughtful interview with me by Anne Veh. You can learn more about it at Datz Press. A few copies are available for purchase from my studio in Muir Beach. Please contact me for more information.

Creativity & the Garden: A Workshop with Wendy Johnson & Mary Daniel Hobson
Sunday, May 5th from 1-4pm in Muir Beach, CA
This afternoon workshop co-taught by myself and master gardener, Wendy Johnson, offers a deep immersion in the natural world through garden wisdom, writing, drawing, meditation and more. We will focus on two classic herb families from antiquity – the fibrous-rooted mint family (i.e. rosemary, lavender and others) and the deep-rooted aromatic family (i.e. coriander, fennel and others). We will learn about their practical care, their culinary & medicinal use, their cultural history and symbolism. Our understanding of these plants will be enhanced by creative expression. Participants will personally select a plant to take home with them to anchor their experience. Tea and light snacks will be provided. The workshop is open to 12 participants. The fee is a sliding scale of $40-$65. To register, please contact me.
The Man in Bogotá – An Artist Book published by Pacific Editions
Pacific Editions has published a beautiful limited-edition artist book featuring six photocollages from my series, Invocations, alongside Amy Hempel’s short story, The Man in Bogotá. Designed by my father Charles Hobson, this book also features his night sky paintings, letter press printing by Rhiannon Alpers, and a clam shell box by John DeMerritt. It was published as a limited-edition of 40 copies in November 2015, and there are only a few copies remaining. If you are interested in learning more about it, please contact me or Charles Hobson.
In addition, you can view an exhibit of books by Charles Hobson & Pacific Editions, called Small Inventions, at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, CA through the end of June 2019.
The Hour of Land: A Book by Terry Tempest Williams
One of my Bottle Dreams sculptures, Grand Canyon, is reproduced on page 362 of The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America’s National Parks by Terry Tempest Williams. Terry’s words have deeply shaped my thinking about land, nature, body and art. There was an exhibit celebrating her book in 2016 at EUQINOMprojects in San Francisco, CA. For this show, I created a new Bottle Dreams piece (pictured below), called Shearwaters, which features photographs of the Sooty Shearwaters that migrate off the coast of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
