With its roots as a ritual of remembrance and reconciliation after the American Civil War, Memorial Day has been a federal holiday observed in the United States over three centuries. Formerly known as Decoration Day, this annual May commemoration honors Americans who have died in military service to their country.

The May exhibition at Gallery 625, “Red, White and Art: Veterans Project,” will offer a salute to veterans with an opening reception multi-media display, in recognition of Memorial Day.

The veteran-themed group exhibit will feature the oil paintings of Rhonda Egan and Julius Spector, along with the photography of Heather Vigil. Spector and Vigil are American military veterans.

Completing the show will be Yolo County high school students’ art work entered in the annual Congressional Art Competition hosted by the district office of Rep. Mike Thompson, D-St. Helena.

The show’s opening reception will offer gallery patrons an opportunity to view video clips of interviews with local veterans conducted by high school students from throughout Yolo County . These interviews will be collected and preserved by the Library of Congress.

An opening reception is planned from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, May 6, coinciding with Woodland ‘s downtown First Friday Art Walk; the featured artists will be present.

Gallery 625, in the County Administration Building at 625 Court St. in Woodland, has regular gallery viewing hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For more information, call YoloArts at (530) 406-4844, or visit http://www.yoloarts.org.
