Boller’s one of 117 original prints chosen

Alameda artist Bonnie Randall Boller’s “Evolving,” a clay monotype, was one of 117 original prints selected to become part of a permanent collection at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. 

Curator Katherine Blood selected the prints from the recently published book, California Society of Printmakers, 100 Years, 1913-2013. 

Oakland-based artist David Burke is exhibiting his ink drawings (one of which is pictured above) on the second floor of the Main library at 1550 Oak St. through Saturday, April 26.

Burke’s ink drawings possess a toxic beauty that celebrate our desire to build, innovate and create. His work pays tribute to the resilience of the natural world and encourages viewers to reconsider our complicated and sometimes convoluted relationship to the environment.
