Tom will be showing all his latest framed and unframed prints at the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival in Old Mill Park this Sept. 15-16, 10-5 daily. This is the beautiful venue in redwood groves along a creek where Tom's art career got started in his teenage years. It is the only outdoor art show Tom will be doing in Marin this year, as he has decided not to exhibit at the Sausalito Art Festival and go backpacking instead. The Mill Valley festival is put on by a committee of community volunteers and local artists and retains the small town feel and handmade artistic work that has distinguished it for over 60 years.
