People of all ages have a story to tell and the March exhibition at Gallery 625 presents these diverse, personal expressions. This eclectic show involves a range of artwork, including gourd painting, fiber art, wood block engravings, ceramic portraiture and poetry.
The artist reception with snacks and Yolo County wine runs from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, March 7, at Gallery 625 in the County Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland
“Generations of Artistry: Artwork by Yolo County Seniors and Students” features the artistic expressions of 12 artists in their 60s to 80s, all from Yolo County: Sally Marie Besser, Marcia Cary, Donna Fanara, Sandra Hart, Ken Hoots, Rita Hoots, Deborah Hunter, Barbara McClintock, Ann Privateer, Kevin Roddy, Isabel Shaskan and Diane Tobias.
The second-floor gallery will feature ceramic portraits created by students attending Einstein Education Center and Midtown schools in Woodland. These schools are part of the Yolo County Office of Education’s alternative education program. Under the tutelage of artist Susan Shelton, 15 student artists explored the artistic process from design and composition to techniques useful in glazing.
“Conceptually, we explored the idea of the many pieces that make up a person, and the changing nature of those pieces, and we addressed the challenge of how to represent ideas, and feelings, and characteristics with symbols and visual images,” Shelton said in describing the exhibition.
