An exhibition of more than 40 sculptures, wood bowls and pottery spanning four decades, was on view in the rear of the Pardee Grand Plaza Gallery in Balboa Park. These elegant architectural sculptures combined exotic woods and acrylic, frequently including the Golden Mean / Section as a design element.

The exhibition was accompanied by a mini-book, John Dirks, Sculptor—A Conversation, published by Mingei International Museum. The exhibition was named best of the year by San Diego CityBeat newspaper.
