The Think in the Morning website has established a NEW LINK – NAPKINS where we will be posting and storing all the napkin art we can obtain (to date about 1500 pieces) organized by artist. If you go to the link, you will be able to easily view all the artist’s napkins currently available. This is an ongoing project. We have around 400 napkins posted by the artists listed below. (Click on the BLUE artist name to be directed to that artist’s napkin page.)
MICHAEL FISCHER … ESTELLE GRUNEWALD … ROY HOGGARD … MARK EANES … JAMES MAXWELL … JOHN CHAMBERLIN … BOB AVERY … RICHARD ALBRIGHT … JACK HAYE … SANDRA LINDSTROM … SUE SISKIN … BOB SEAGER … KAY RUDIN … CINDY SWAN … SULA COMBS … KAREN KESLER … MAX EFROYM … DECLAN
We will be adding artists and napkins as time allows. We are also seeking additional napkins to add from collectors. If you have or know of napkins that may be available, please contact TITM at: firstname.lastname@example.org
To read more about napkin art at the Sea Gull Cellar Bar during the 70s and 80s, go to:
Sea Gull Cellar Bar Napkin Art Show
These wonderful pieces of original art have been used throughout our site and will continue to be used where appropriate to elucidate that time in Mendocino history and to show how that history connects to the present. Enjoy ! [NOTE: the napkins are in private collections and are not for sale despite what you read below.)
Damn, we knew a lot in 1982.
I think it’s amazing how much you knew, how relevant the napkin art is still today. Working on this project has deepened my already great respect for art and even for the doodlers. And, you just keep getting better!
Thank you, and a thank you from Estelle.
