Transitions: The Beauty of Life’s Journey

August 27 – October 22, 2022, Reception: Saturday, August 27, 1-3pm

Transitions: The Beauty of Life’s Journey features 20 nationally-known artists from California. This exhibition revolves around each artist’s interpretation of transitional elements in our lives. Artists may choose to interpret this theme in landscape, figurative or still life paintings and will be using a variety of mediums including oil, pastel, and watercolor. Interpretations range from transitional elements in the landscape by season or the time of day, while figurative works encompass life’s changes. Also included in this exhibition are a selection of still lifes reflecting the organic qualities of the world as other works focus on the changing elements of our land and landmarks over time. (Guest curated by Ellen Howard.)

Sept 2022 Portfolio

Christine writes regarding her art – “I’ve worked with art materials since childhood, with crayons and coloring books, making house designs on sheets of butcher paper and modeling clay into animals. I took all the art classes they had in high school then went on to college majoring in sculpture and ceramics. I earned a teaching credential and taught elementary school for 34 years. I always included art in the curriculum as it was one of my passions.

Since retiring I’ve spent much of my free time playing with art in various forms and taking art classes. My main love is ceramics but a close second is drawing with colored pencils. Over the years I’ve won awards for both ceramics and drawing and I’ve sold my art locally. I’m currently working with PAL as the chair of the PAL/MOM art show.”

California Votes – August 16 – October 8 – Despite California’s influence on our nation’s politics, voter turnout in California falls below the national average. While the political focus is usually at the federal and state levels, local political issues have a greater impact on our everyday lives. In both English and Spanish, California Votes: Exercise Your Right! breaks down the importance of voting, demystifies referendums and ballot measures, highlights political ephemera in your collection, and encourages your visitors to make their voices heard on the local, state, and national levels.
