Last Saturday's Art Show at University Art Supplies Store

I'm celebrating two days early or five days late, depending on how you look at it. Here are the art pieces from the South Natomas Community Center's Art Club Show. The reception was last Saturday, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm and students served punch and cookies. The timing was because in Sacramento, Second Saturday each month is when art receptions are held, although with adult artists receptions are in the evening, and munchies and wine are usually served.



















 I had to clamber around in the window to take these photos, so they aren't as tidy as I would wish. The pieces are mounted on a wallpaper trim background, then mounted again on a mat the has complementary coloring. These last 3 are different angles of the complete show.

The little tags hanging below each art piece are the artistic statements of the student artists. They are always so interesting to read.


Enjoy the show! And have a nice day.

Celebrate the Small Things  is a blog hop co-hosted by Lexa Cain at: Lexa Cain,  L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge , and Tonja Drecker @ Tidbits Blog(You can go to any of these sites to add your name to the links, if you want to participate.)

I like the dog in front of the brick wall the best.

Hi, Richard. Our class meets today, so I will pass that on to the artist, Santiago. He calls that piece "A Husky's Winter". He used colored pencils on pastel paper. Hope your own art is going well, and your writing, too.

Thanks, Rosi, it really was a nice show. It was my pleasure to pass on some of the compliments about pieces to the kids today.

Thanks, Tanya. They are an inspiring group. Each time I go into class, they give me a real spiritual boost.

Goodness Elizabeth. I fear I am very late visiting. These pieces are quite lovely and moving. There are some truly budding artists there. I can see why you want to teach these children. Their show turned out great. It's nice to see children this young writing and sharing their artist statements.

B&E, Thanks for stopping by. Glad you like their work. Re: the artistic statements: They are really so interesting to read. One little girl said "Art makes me feel free." Another said "Art makes me feel calm." A couple more mentioned how calming and relaxing are is. I think today's young people are really under a lot of stress.

This is a lovely collection. Thank you for sharing it. I would love to have a notebook with the pink flowers (tulips?) on the cover.

Hi, Julia. I LOVE that idea! I will pass it on to the student artist. She will be very pleased. Have a great week-end.
