7-Color Serigraph, 100% cotton paper, 620 Limited Edition, Dated: 1988, Printer: Seriphics


By 1984 the Monterey Bay Aquarium (40 million dollars) was at one end of the Row, and The Monterey Plaza Hotel (60 million dollars) was on the other. Developers were gobbling up the spaces in between. The abandoned canneries had many bouts with mysterious fires, all the while the city was trying to decide the merits of their historical value. This image of a bulldozer about to demolish one of the last original canneries, after a suspicious fire, signals the end of an era... A time after the reckless slaughter of fish, romanticized in the intensely human and colorful novels by John Stienbeck... and a time before the corporate commercialism of Cannery Row. It was an era of inner reflection set against a backdrop of quiet abandon...

Cannery Row #3

  • 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.
