The Matheny print above was made and exhibited in 1965 at the Nexus Gallery. The gallery/bookstore, owned by Laurence McGilvery, was located in the Wisteria Cottage-- the very place the Climate Change exhibition is being held. The 1965 exhibition at the Nexus Gallery ran concurrently with Matheny’s exhibition of sculpture held at the neighboring La Jolla Museum of Art.
