7-Color Serigraph, 100% cotton paper, 475 Limited Edition, small number of artists proofs with grey leading, Dated: 1986, Printer: Seriphics

This restaurant was below the artists Studio/Gallery. Joe Rombi had started small and was growing with the times. It was when small business people were converting the old canneries into retail adventures. Joe's dad, Grank, salvaged old tin siding and nailed sardine cans to the roof for ambience. Tourists were coming to see John Stienbeck's dramatized version of Cannery Row, only to find an eclectic group of small businesses, including a pillow theater that jutted out over the bay, and the usual remains of the old canneries. Every summer a small marijuana plant would sprout in the planter box. It was fun to see how large it would get before someone would discover and pluck it.

Cannery Row #2

  • From his studio/gallery at 807 Cannery Row, Monterey, CA. Jeffrey Sax has been producing and selling his work to a worldwide audience. His serigraphs from the 1980's were hand printed, one color at a time, by master printers (primarily David Smith of Seriphics). Edition series were usually limited to 500 prints (or less) and there are no originals. The artist working with a photographer created transparent overlays which were then burned onto screens by the printer. This integrity factor combined with Jeff's artistry has earned him representation in museums alongside artists like Warhol, Picasso, and Rauschenberg.
