Our current schedule for 2017 is now available (click on the tab above). Note that some dates are still to be determined and will be posted when known. We don’t know yet how long the winter rains will last and how high the rivers will be, and this effects when and where we can go collecting in the spring.

We held our 35th annual exhibit on August 6-7, 2016 in Japantown in San Francisco. We had a lot of new stones on display this year, with a good variety of styles, including some from our newest members. One of the fun aspects to our exhibit is the opportunity to introduce suiseki to people who happen upon our show while attending the Nihonmachi Street Fair, which is also held on that same weekend of August.

Glowing reviews keep appearing for the Oakland Museum exhibit, Unearthed: Found + Made. It is truly gratifying how much people who have never even thought about “viewing stones” are enjoying it. I have created a list of the reviews on the right side of the page.

The schedule for 2016 has been posted.
Please note that the planned stone-collecting dates, especially the earlier ones in April – June, are tentative. Because of the possibility of high water earlier in the year it may be necessary to adjust our schedule. We will review our plans at the March meeting and make changes as necessary.
