The Huntington Beach Art Center is showcasing local artists again! The show has been up since January 26th, and will close on March 9th.
Opening night was wonderful, as I have come to enjoy meeting and connecting with my fellow local artists. There are so many styles and mediums at this show, there really is something for everyone. My personal favorites include a pelican quilt by Linda Sackin, a colorful circuit-board-type piece mixed media collage by Eva Altmann, and an abstract swirl called “Color Go Round” by Larry Wallace! The art isn’t just on the walls, either – there are inventive metalwork pieces and lots of fiber arts (for which I have special affection) to enjoy.
The cherry on top of all this is that my print of “Arrival at Emerald City” sold before I even saw it on the wall! If my other piece, “Davie for Adoption” sells, I plan to donate that money to the HB Humane Society, where Davie currently resides.
I’m excited to be participating in one of my favorite shows again — this time with not one, but TWO pieces. I love this show because it showcases the incredible range of skill and imagination to be found in our own community [of hundreds of thousands of people.]
I hope you’ll join me (and much of Orange County’s artsy population) at the Huntington Beach Art Center on Main St this Saturday the 28th. There’s sure to be something for everyone in this open-subject, open-medium show!
