Self-taught artist Susan Shelton will be the featured guest at the seventh annual “Artistic Sensations” fundraiser to be held at the Rominger West Winery in Davis from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 13.

Shelton’s work includes functional pottery, sculpture, tile, carved ceramic murals, works cast in bronze, and a variety of landscape and public art installations. She is a graduate of UC Davis and her work reflects the many influences in her life, including her cultural heritage as a native of Mexico, her love for her adopted home of California, and her background in science and love of nature.

Shelton was one of two artists commissioned by the state of California to create a commemorative bronze seal for Spanish and Mexican sovereignty, installed at the Capitol in May 2002. Her public art installations can be found at schools, churches, parks and on the UCD campus.

She 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.” She is also the creator of the Minerva Seal, commissioned by former California first lady Maria Shriver, as part of her Minerva Award program.

Event proceeds will be used to support YoloArts’ art education programs, including artists in schools, throughout Yolo County. Tickets are $50 and may be purchased online at http://www.yoloarts.org, or by calling YoloArts at (530) 406-4844. The Rominger West Winery is at 4602 Second St. in Davis.

YoloArts fosters, develops and advocates support for the arts by working closely with artists, education, business and government.
