The Davis Junior High School Orchestras will host an elementary strings workshop from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday at Emerson Junior High School, 2121 Calaveras Ave. Sign-in and late registration begin at 12:45 p.m. All pre-registered students will receive a T-shirt at the workshop.

This event is for elementary string players in fifth and sixth grades with two to three years of playing experience. The participants will work individually and in groups with advanced players from the junior high schools, under the direction of Angelo Moreno and Greg Brucker.

The afternoon ends with a concert where the students perform the music learned throughout the day. Information will be provided about the district music program and parents will have the opportunity  to ask questions about the music program at the junior high level.

The workshop is provided free to the community through the support of the Davis Schools Orchestral Music Association.

Post’s art on exhibit at The Artery

Sara Post’s ceramics, paintings and prints are on exhibit as “Close to Home” through Monday, March 8, at The Artery, 207 G St. in downtown Davis.

Post offers her tribute to the beauty, the fascination and even strangeness of houses and gardens. She looks at walls, windows, doors and rooftops; the spaces they create and the landscape they define.

She works in a variety of media and techniques, including ceramics, painting, printmaking and collage. “I love working across media and freely using the materials that best express the idea of any particular piece of art work,” she said in a news release.

For more information, call The Artery at (530) 758-8509 or visit http://www.theartery.net.
