ARTventure

Last year Sharon and I went to a very crowded and unusual art opening at SOCO in Costa Mesa – great food, music, poetry, and a juried art exhibit.

So this year I decided to enter 3 of my wood relief art works and all 3 have been accepted. The 2 venues at SOCO are not traditional galleries but more like designer showrooms with furniture/stuff all around the chosen art works… kind of a treasure hunt!

Venues: CISCO HOME and DESIGN WITHIN REACH

Friday eve November 11 from 6pm-9pm is the opening, and the show runs until Sunday, November 13 at 3pm.

See the evite attachment below and come if you can! 3033 Hyland Ave, Costa Mesa 92626, OFF THE 405 FWY

Adams’ CD Cover

Several months ago I received an email asking for permission to use an image of mine that the musician had found online. I said OK.

The art work is called EARTH AIR FIRE WATER.earth-air-fire-water-copy

The CD  arrived last week and the cover looks like this.cd-2016-sacred-elementals

and the CD also has the image of the art worksacred-elementals

With the title of the CD Sacred Elementals, it is easy to see why

my art work was chosen! The music is like chanting.

SCA April Meeting

The next meeting for all SCA members is Saturday, April 16, 2016 at Coastline College Gallery. This date was chosen by several board members to enable viewing the RIBBA 2 exhibit (reception 5-8pm), and to view the Art/Craft Fair at the college (noon to 8pm).

The meeting begins at 3pm, and the AGENDA includes exhibit opportunities, reviews of books and exhibits  by members, and what’s happening for the rest of 2016.
