Hope you had a great summer and made it through all our heat this year!
We will have our meeting at the Irvine Fine Arts Center next Saturday, Sept 15 at 2 pm. In case you haven’t made it before, there is a seating area through the gallery and facing the park. Be sure to allow extra time because the Irvine All Media Show is going on.
IFAC is open till 5 pm.
Our agenda will include talking about our website. Randall Holbrook has been working on it and would like to show it to you. Hopefully, wifi will be working so that he can actually show us how to move through it. Bring your phones and tablets just in case.
If you want to add something to the agenda just email Janet or me. Also, bring artwork to share.

Accounting for over twenty percent of prisoners in the world, the United States has the highest rate of incarceration per capita than any other nation. This group exhibition will explore artistic themes of personal and societal oppression and liberation, photography documenting the sometimes cathartic stories and experiences of people in prison arts programs, as well as artwork by prisoners themselves.

The title of the exhibition, Altered States, refers to the potential of art to lead the viewer to another sense of self and place. My artwork is an investigation in transformation, hence creating a reference to different states of being. This can be achieved through physical and spiritual means. My creative process centers on manipulating and deconstructing the traditional expectations of painting. I am concerned with functional concerns as well as the fragility of such. I work as an Alchemist, transforming a few humble materials into three-dimensional paintings which are imbued with their own history and aesthetic values. I want to capture the essence of a landscape, whether urban or global, into something transformative and tangible which is simple, hopeful and beautiful.
