FALLBROOK – Friends of the Fallbrook Library present two new art exhibits. “Beginnings” in the Community Room and “Story Torsos” on the Reading Patio will be on display from Jan. 16 to March 15.
The beginning of a new year, new career, new love, new start, new life. The art show in the Community Room hosts 15 exceptional artists from West Coast Drawing. These artists, facing a blank sheet of paper or canvas, ask themselves, “Do I start with a line, a spot, a scribble?” “What am I trying to accomplish?”
As artists, they face a new beginning every time they sit down to draw. Each artist in this show has gone beyond that first mark and has created interesting and varied images that transcend that first beginning, bringing the finished piece to a final and extraordinary finish. West Coast Drawings members are among the most stellar artists on the California West Coast in drawing media.
Rhonda Anderson, Tony Beltran, Carlos Castrejon, Cheryl Cotman, Kenda Francis, Laura Lehman, Echo Lew, Clayton Llewellyn, Kathleen McCord, Robert Nelson, Susan J. Osborn, Mick Phelan, Maria Evangelina Rodriguez, Ted Washington and Kathy Serrano Zanot, the featured artists in “Beginnings” are a part of WCD for mutual inspiration and set a high bar for drawing, a stand-alone art form of its own. Their art showcases a broad range of techniques and media.
On the Reading Patio, “Story Torsos” a sculpture series by Julia C R Gray, explores her impressions of innate tendencies to seek connection with nature and other forms of life. She applies this essential connection to the female torso in ceramic form and communicates concerns that touch her heart from women’s rights to climate change.
An Artist’s reception is planned for Saturday, Jan. 27, from 2 to 4 p.m. Meet the artists, enjoy light refreshments and live music. This event is free and everyone is welcome. The Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Road.
