Gallery 625 to host ‘YOLO: You Only Live Once’ exhibit

Artist Susan Shelton of Davis proudly unveils her new public art installation, "From the Ground Up," an 8-by-16-foot mural just outside the front door of the Yolo County Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland. She will speak about the mural project at 7 p.m. Friday during a First Friday reception that runs from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Courtesy photo

The call for art for the May exhibition at Gallery 625 posed several questions: “What does Yolo County mean to you?,” “What does ‘YOLO: You Only Live Once’ mean to you?” and “How do the two intersect?”

The result was farm-themed murals, drawings, ceramics and photographs from youths and adults from throughout Yolo County. Sixth-grade students at Esparto, facilitated by teaching artist Jim Vetter, created two, 50-square-foot murals depicting agricultural activity in rural Yolo County.

Sixteen students enrolled in Art 1 and Ceramics 9 courses with teacher Deanna Leveque at Holmes Junior High in Davis will exhibit whimsical paintings and ceramic interpretations of YOLO. Imagery of skateboarding, biking, a tomato truck, hot air balloon and compassionate actions offer up a fun and colorful examination through the eyes of these Davis teenagers.

Members of the Woodland Camera Forum will display their photographic interpretations of the show’s theme. Artists include Susan Lord Bovey, Kenny Calhoun, Betti Clark, Alan Fishleder, Richard Halliburton, Bethany Petrik and Marianne Ryan.

Students attending Midtown Community School and the Einstein Education Center, programs of the Yolo County Office of Education, will exhibit ceramic insects created with YoloArts teaching artist Susan Shelton of Davis, as participants in YoloArts’ Artists in Schools program.

Upstairs at the gallery, the student artwork from the Congressional Art Competition sponsored by Rep. John Garamendi will be on exhibit. This collection of artwork by 10 Yolo County students includes colored pencil drawings, photography and watercolor paintings.

A new public art installation, “From the Ground Up,” will be celebrated at this First Friday reception at the County Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland. Shelton created the vibrant 132-square-foot mural at the east entrance to the building. It is a gift from YoloArts to Yolo County made possible by a grant from ArtPlace America.

Shelton will speak about the mural project at 7 p.m.; the reception runs from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

“YOLO” will run through June 5 at Gallery 625 at the County Administration Building. Regular viewing hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For more information, call YoloArts at 530-406-4844 or visit yoloarts.org.
