Artist Tony Natsoulas, whose “The Joggers” statue is one of downtown Davis’ most recognizable landmarks, is the featured artist at the eighth annual  “Artistic Sensations” fundraiser.

The event will run from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 11, at the Willow Oak Fire District Hall in Woodland. Proceeds will be used to support YoloArts’ art education programs throughout Yolo County.

“Keeping art programs in schools is a huge challenge for schools and districts around the county,” said Mary Flohr Kaltenbach, event chairwoman and a member of the YoloArts board of directors.

“Last year, almost 2,000 students benefited from our art education programs and we are working hard to keep art in schools in Yolo County.”

Natsoulas’ work includes functional pottery, sculpture, works cast in bronze and a variety of landscape and public art installations. His main interest has been in large-scale humorous figurative ceramic sculptures and his work has been shown in galleries and museums around the world.

Dinner at “Artistic Sensations” will be served by Gourmet Solutionz catering, accompanied by local wines, beer from Woodland’s Black Dragon Brewery, a live acoustic blues performance by duo Jimmy Pailer and Lew Fratis, and a silent art auction. A sculpture by Natsoulas will be awarded to a lucky raffle winner.

Last year, YoloArts art education programs offered ceramics, dance, drawing and painting, and the Blues in the Schools program to 1,927 students around the county.

This year, for the first time, the program is being offered at Dan Jacobs School (at the county’s Juvenile Hall) and Midtown Community School. In addition, Yolo County artists teach art at Gibson and Beamer elementary schools in Woodland; Montgomery Elementary School in Davis; Clarksburg Middle School and Delta High School in Clarksburg; and at K-8 and high schools in Esparto.

Tickets for “Artistic Sensations” are $50 each and may be purchased online at yoloarts.org/box-office, or by calling (530) 406-4844.
