The oldest art organization in Mendocino County will grace the front windows of the Corner Gallery for the month of November. The Mendocino County Art Association has been in existence for 69 years and boasts 107 members. Artists of all media, skill levels and interests are welcome to join the group for inspiration, support and camaraderie. Many display their work frequently at the Corner Gallery and other prominent venues across Northern California, and others are taking the leap into the world of professional artistry for the first time. Whatever their level of experience, all are putting their best foot forward to display their wealth of skills during this annual fall event.
Artists featured in the show will be Svetlana Artemoff, Wanda Bennett, Deborah Briggs, Dora Briley, Sage Buckley-Lim, Jeanette Carson, Karen Falconer-Wimer, Sarah Falk, Katie Gibbs, Gina Greco, Gwen Hardage Vergeer, Lori Holaday, Laurie Howard, Katie Kight, Cat Lair, Cindy Lindgren, Kathleen Miller Thomas, Mary Monroe, Polly Palecek, Bev Rae, Elaine Richard, Alexis Spakoski, Kerry Sullivan, Susan Sweet, Susan Walker, BArbara Ware, and Lynn Williams.
Media represented will be watercolor, oil, acrylic, mosaics, colored pencil, pastels… and undoubtedly a lot of other things. The fun thing about a member show is that it has no theme and isn’t juried… artists select what they like best from their year’s worth of creating, even if it’s an experiment in an unfamiliar medium that surprised them with its success. The joy is seeing all the eclectic work together, bursting with color, energy and individuality.
The First Friday opening celebration will be on November 3 from 5-8pm. Live music will be provided throughout the evening by Steve Hahm. People are encouraged to come and enjoy the company of the artists while viewing their art. .
