Shadow Creek (pastel on paper, 14" x 11"). Bay Area-based artist Bill Cone has been painting for 20 years around the state and makes annual pack trips into the Sierra wilderness to paint with like-minded souls. His day job is production design for Pixar Animation Studios. Credits there include Cars, Toy Story, Toy Story II, Inside Out, and A Bug's Life. He blogs at BillCone.blogspot.com. Cone exhibits his landscapes locally at the STUDIO Gallery in San Francisco and in the East Bay at Holton Studio Gallery, part of Holton Studio Frame-Makers (www.HoltonFrames.com), which, after 23 years in Emeryville, is moving to Berkeley. Watch for it to open soon at its new location at 2100 Fifth St. (at Addison) in Berkeley.
NEXT MONTH: The Monthly augments its in-depth issues-oriented feature reporting with regular education, environmental, education, parenting, retail, and food coverage. September's emphasis is education, as we investigate the landscape of East Bay learning from the K-12 to higher education levels. Also on tap: dining at Teni East Kitchen, Reese Erlich is all about movies, and Paul Kilduff catches up with Crockett's Clayton Bailey.
