The annual YoloArts group exhibition of artwork by Yolo County teachers takes on special meaning this year, as the show is being dedicated to the memory of a longtime art teacher, Mary Wilbur, who died in May.
“A+ for Art” will run through July 31 at Gallery 625, in the Erwin Meier Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland.
The exhibition will include the paintings, drawings and photographs of 11 teachers who are also artists. Watercolor paintings of the late Wilbur will be exhibited. Wilbur had a lifelong passion for art, and shared her deep love of painting with children for more than 30 years in Davis and Bay Area schools. She was a graduate of UC Berkeley and a prolific artist, winning many awards at the Yolo County Fair and regularly exhibiting her artwork around Davis. The show opens Friday, July 5, which would have been Wilbur’s 78th birthday.
Also featured in the show will be the artwork of Woodland teachers Laura Hanke and Rick Humphrey of Pioneer High School, and Victoria Lambert from Dingle Elementary School; and Davis teachers Kerri Hogan and Deanna Leveque of Holmes Junior High, Seana Burke of Da Vinci, Ted Fontaine and Doug Wright of Davis High, and Joyce Winter, who teaches art for the Davis school district. In addition, Laguna Creek High School art teacher Kaye Gamper of Davis will be exhibiting her watercolor and photography work.
The exhibit’s opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., coinciding with Woodland’s downtown First Friday Art Walk, and will be attended by the artist teachers and members of the Wilbur family.
Continuing through July in the upstairs gallery will be “Our Journey — The First Families of East Yolo,” a collection of photographs honoring the first families — Native Americans — who lived, worked and raised their families in what is now West Sacramento. This exhibition is a joint effort of the West Sacramento Historical Society, the California Indian Heritage Center and California State Parks and is co-curated by Thom Lewis and April Farnham.
Regular gallery viewing hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For additional information, call YoloArts at 530-406-4844, or visit the website at yoloarts.org.
