Congratulations to Julianne Ricksecker! Her collagraph “Solitude,” which she showed at the Guild's June 12 Zoom meeting, was juried into the Guild’s 2021 Summer Online Exhibition. The 8 1/2" x 6 1/4" size collagraph is hand-printed by the artist on German Etching paper. The edition size is 25.

Julianne tells us this about her work:
"This brooding image of a lone Torrey Pine on a cliff overlooking the ocean was inspired by a stormy late afternoon hike.
The image is created by coating a mat board scrap with a sandy acrylic ground. If inked at that stage, it would print a rich black. Light areas are developed by applying acrylic grounds to fill in around the grains of sand and to create other textural areas that will hold less ink. Finally gloss and mat mediums are used to further control how the ink will wipe off the plate. The plate is inked and wiped in the manner of an etching and printed on damp paper on an etching press."

"BOLD PERSPECTIVES". This will be my largest show of work in one place. A combination of at least 22 etchings, paintings, and photographs (two room solo show) in conjunction with the 'Galaxy of Glass' exhibition. Reception: Sept 7th, 5-7pm FALLBROOK ARTS CENTER, Main St, Fallbrook. Hope to see you there. 'Bold Perspectives' Janet Lee Sep. 7, 2019 - Oct. 20, 2019 The Rosalie & Spencer Lehmann and The Salon Galleries @ The Fallbrook Art Center Classically trained in England and at San Diego State University, Janet Lee’s show proposes a balance of dualities, delicate yet bold, which together form her personal perspective and aesthetic direction using ancient and modern techniques. Her imagery has a clear statement in any medium including printmaking, painting, and photography.
San Digo Artist Inducted into Library of Congress Collection. Contact [email protected] for an invite to the reception.
POETS WITHOUT BORDERS Featuring Beat Poet Laureate Chris Vannoy, National Slam Poetry Champion Viet Mai, Taco Shop Poetess Jackie Lopez, Izzy Blaze, Yvonne King & Igor Goldkind Will Perform at the Mesa College Gallery Reception for Mario Torero: "Artivismo Loko" Mario Torero is an internationally renowned muralist and a legend of the Chicano community. The title of the exhibition includes a term that Torero coined: “artivism” as the marriage of art and activism. POETS WITHOUT BORDERS is Chris Vannoy, Viet Mai, Yvonne King, Izzy Blaze, Jackie Lopez, Igor Goldkind, a gipsy band of poets inspired by and dedicated to the Artivist vision inspired by artist/muralist Mario Torero. By using both visual and literary arts to promote progressive social change and voice resistance to injustice. POETS WITHOUT BORDERS promotes the higher values of Freedom, Justice, Liberty, Planetary Sustainability and Human Rights. Mainly by actively bringing art back to the public sphere: where we live, where we eat and where we recreate. We also think Poetry is better than prayer because you don’t have to pretend that someone is listening. Mesa College Art Gallery: 619 388-2829 Poets Without Borders: Igor Goldkind 858 349 6429
During our April 14 Liberty Station meeting, Alessandra Moctezuma, Gallery Director and Museum Studies Director Professor at San Diego Mesa College, provided us with a fantastic presentation on “How to Present Your Artwork and Get Connected.” She graciously permitted us to publish a copy of her slides on our Guild website: www.sdmaag.org. Everyone had a lot of questions and appreciated her spending the morning with us. As during each meeting, attendees presented their artwork during the first hour. The next meeting will take place on Saturday, May 12, 10 a.m. to 12 noon, at the Dick Laub NTC Command Center – 2640 Historic Decatur Road. Our speaker will be mixed media and encaustic painter Michelle Haglund presenting “The Art of Encaustic Painting.” We thank ART DISTRICT Liberty Station for their continued sponsorship of these meetings.
Upcoming show this Saturday down the street!
I was involved in Life arts classes in Phoenix and Miami but it's been 40 years ago. I need to sign up with a group like yours to get work as a life arts model. I am 67, have an interesting face and body, (very hairy), not a pro but can hold short poses well and longer poses with a prop, self supplied.
