Ken’s first solo show at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History (MAH) “One Track Mind” was a big success. Ken received many positive comments and encouragements. We thank those who visited the show. Here’s some comments from the guest book.

“Very impressive to see the same details with watercolor and pencil”
“Gorgeous trains! Self-portrait is my favorite”
