"Here and There" at the Townsend Center

I will be having a show, called "Here and There" at UC Berkeley’s Townsend Center.  The show opens February 16, from 5:00 – 7:00.  The show will be up until May 15.  Stop by if you can make it.  The Townsend Center  (220 Stephen’s Hall) is near the center of campus, next to the clock tower.

This is the text from the Townsend Center's press release:

 "Matthew Mullins’s large scale watercolor paintings feature private collections, archives and storage facilities, mostly associated with the natural sciences. Fascinated at the amount of material they house, Mullins envisions these spaces as giant curio cabinets housing the souvenirs of people and experiences we’ll never know. For Mullins, everything from the treasured artifacts housed in climate controlled basements to the everyday detritus left in storage lockers becomes a tangible representation of another person’s story, a link to another point in time, and an opportunity to connect to something outside of ourselves."
