Daniel Handler is the author of the novels The Basic Eight, Watch Your Mouth and Adverbs, and far too many books as Lemony Snicket.  He is the adjunct accordionist for the Magnetic Fields.


For his current show, Tucker Nichols has filled the entire gallery with his characteristic mix of objects, drawings, paintings and signs. He remains focused on the futility of the systems we devise to navigate the world, its overabundance of neglected things, and the messages we make to advertise nearly everything and seemingly nothing at the same time. This marks the first exhibition on the west coast to feature the full range of his work—in size, media, subject and approach - and a comprehensive look at his distinctive worldview.
