Doug Lawler - New Work 2021

This month we are proud to present Doug Lawler's 4th solo exhibition at Abrams Claghorn Gallery. This is a must see in person show of new works, plus a few works from earlier shows for your viewing pleasure.

Artist Statement

"This series was done during the Covid lockdown when I was fortunate to spend time on trails along the redwood coast. I wanted to capture the tranquility and peace that i found being surrounding by light, textures and color. 

With this work I wanted to celebrate the seasons using the sun and moon as the unifying factor.

I hope you enjoy them"

-Doug Lawler

About Us

Abrams Claghorn Gallery believes that everyone has a unique story to tell through creative expression. We present over 70 local makers in our diverse collection of home goods and art for sale. We also feature local and emerging artists, rotating monthly in our gallery. We showcase works that allow artists to focus on concept and masterful craftsmanship.

Sustainable, Ethically Sourced, Fairly Priced 

There are a several positive results from choosing only local artists as vendors. Most makers in the SF Bay Area are women, and if we choose our vendors based on quality alone, then it naturally follows that we will have a very representitive sampling of the local community, meaning most items in the shop are made by women. And, that also means that with many other factors (culture, ethnicity, age, etc) we have an accurate sampling of the artist community at large.

It is important to us that there are no ethical concerns for labor sourcing and few sustainability issues. We know personally 99% of the makers, and what their inventory is made with. None of the items we sell are made in factories. Almost all of the inventory is hand delivered, which means the vendor does not leave packing materials here, and any used by the vendor can be re-used for later transportation and delivery.

Last, and very important, it is crucial to us that the vendors get paid a fair amount for the items we sell. That means we are not always as inexpensive as other places. 

We thank you for your support of local artists and craftspeople, and hope to see you in the shop soon!
