The seventh annual “Artistic Sensations — Opening Doors to Art Education” will run from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 13, at the Rominger West Winery, 4602 Second St. in Davis.
Event proceeds will be used to support YoloArts’ art education programs, including Artists in Schools, throughout Yolo County. YoloArts cultivates and advocates support for the arts by working closely with artists, education, business and government.
The evening’s featured artist will be Davis artist Susan Shelton, whose work includes functional pottery, sculpture, works cast in bronze and a variety of landscape and public art installations. Shelton is featured in the “Remarkable Women” exhibit at the California Museum for History, Women and the Arts in Sacramento, along with her bronze sculpture of “Califia.” Some of Shelton’s other public art projects have included carved tile murals for schools, churches, parks and UC Davis.
