LAA “New Dawn Virtual Show”, February 25 to March 31, 2021 https://livermoreartassociation.org/new-dawn.

New Dawn Secured a Whopping Number of Entries! Are you ready for this? LAA’s very first virtual art show, New Dawn, has resulted in an avalanche of entries from artists in the Tri-Valley and beyond. 85 artists entered 223 absolutely stunning pieces of 2D & 3D artwork in a wide variety of visual art media: Oils, Watercolor, Acrylic, Pastel, Quilling, Paper Mache, Mixed Media, Photography, Printing & Drawings, Linocut, Wood turning, Egg Tempera, Fiber, Charcoal, Pen & Ink, Glass, and more. Our online submission limit had maxed out by 6:00 pm on the last day, February 15th, and we continued to receive email submissions until midnight. Artists from Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin, Tracy, San Ramon, Danville, Fremont, Moraga, Stockton, Oakley, Clayton, Modesto, Turlock, San Jose, Belmont and San Francisco are taking part. We have heard from many artists that have been eager to showcase their work; many haven’t been able to do so for more than a year.

The show will be live from February 25 to March 31 on LAA’s website. The majority of the artwork is for sale in LAA’s online store https://livermoreartassociation.org/online-store. Stop by, you won’t want to miss this!

Artists were looking for the opportunity to show and sell. It has taken a small but dedicated team of volunteers to turn this possibility into reality. Thank you Christine Watters, Craig Varden and Joyce Moulden for supporting me with your experience, expertise and guidance.

Usha Shukla: I am participating in the new art exhibition at Bankhead Theater, “Sketches in Code, Randomness & Patterns in Science and Art.” This thought-provoking experience explores the math and science that lie behind everyday patterns in nature. Sketches in Code was developed in partnership with the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center. Using code to create art using mathematical formulas, organic artwork is created interactively and displayed on a monitor, alongside fine art paintings showing patterns and randomness. February 12 to May 2. Bankhead Theater Gallery 2400 First Street, Livermore.

Art Exhibit at the Bankhead Theater Gallery, “Sketches in Code: Randomness & Patterns in Science and Art”. Open Fridays 2-6, Saturdays and Sundays 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Masks required, limited entry. Bankhead Theater, 2400 First Street, Livermore.
