Cover | Anthony Holdsworth
Occupy Oakland #3 (oil on hardwood ply). Through his work, plein air oil painter Anthony Holdsworth has been witnessing Bay Area goings-on for 40 years. “Occupy Oakland is one of the most significant events I have painted,” he says. “This long-overdue awakening of the American people is on a par with my experience painting in revolutionary Nicaragua in the ’80s.” Holdsworth’s studio, located near the West Oakland BART Station, is open to the public the last Sunday of every month from 1-6 p.m, with prints and postcards of his paintings available for purchase. Registration closes Jan. 31 for Holdsworth’s June 16-30 painting workshop on a Tuscan farm near Florence.
