The exhibition captures the beauty of the California coast from Mendocino, Point Reyes, and the San Francisco Bay down through Carmel, Big Sur, Santa Barbara, and Santa Monica. Woodcut artist Tom Killion’s prints combine exquisite color with dynamic composition to portray the coast’s ever-changing moods and diverse formations: storm tides crashing at Point Lobos, serene moonlit coves at Mendocino, fog encircling the Golden Gate Bridge.

Deepening our experience are poetry and prose from Gary Snyder (co-author of California’s Wild Edge) and other well-known California poets of the past and present. The exhibition is originated by the San Francisco Public Library and is based on a new Heyday book of the same name, released in the summer of 2015.

"Tom Killion is a California treasure. No other artist knows the state's wild landscape more intimately, or captures them more faithfully. His exquisite woodcuts combine a walker's inch-by-inch knowledge of the terrain with a compositional sense as dramatic and unerring as that of the great Japanese masters Hokusai and Hiroshige." - Gary Kamiya, San Francisco Magazine Executive Editor

The exhibition includes:

  • 43 framed woodcut prints by Tom Killion
  • Text panels featuring the poetry and prose of Gary Snyder, Robinson Jeffers, and other California writers past and present
  • Japanese carving tools used by Killion
  • Progressive proofs to help explain Killion's printing process
  • Gallery copy of California's Wild Edge (Heyday Books)
  • Exhibition press kit with digital images
  • Ready-made social media posts
  • Educational and programming resources
