Event Details

The Lamorinda Arts Council is delighted to invite you to view the June exhibit in the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library. All all four wood walls near the entrance to the Orinda Library and the adjacent three-shelf glass case are filled with art. This partial reopening of the gallery includes observance of posted COVID-19 restrictions for your health and safety.

“Reclaiming Aging” came about when photographer Nancy Rubin and writer Cynthia Overbeck Bix were discussing how attitudes toward older people often did not include terms such as “vital, creative and joyful.”  You will see photographs and text showcasing eight vibrant, active people aged 70 to 96 including former UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor Russ.  The Peaceful Life is the theme of Wendy Liang’s exhibit; she is a recent grad of California College of the Arts. She says watercolor is her favorite medium because its transparent and fluid qualities give her freedom to create the mood and atmosphere she desires. Karen Hildebrand is showing 40 ceramic pieces in the three-shelf glass cabinet. There are high fire functional pieces as well as decorative vessels. Alternative firings include Pit fires, Raku and Sagger fires.

View the artwork of the June exhibitors via photos and videos HERE. The Council thanks contributing artists for their cooperation in providing the photographs and video(s) that make up their companion online exhibit in addition to their physical exhibit.

This exhibit runs June 1 through 30 during normal Library hours, Mon. – Thur., 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., Fri. – Sat., 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., closed Sun.

Event Details

Artwork from 43 artists previously sequestered in studios since March 2020 has finally escaped into the light! You can meet the artists at an outdoor reception in their honor on Saturday, July 10 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. on the patio adjacent to the Gallery. Curators Maggie Boscoe and Bill Carmel are delighted to display this unprecedented outpouring of local talent which includes over 85 paintings, fabric art, mixed media, 3D sculpture, photographs, ceramics and turned wood.

Because the Lamorinda Arts Council reconfigured all scheduled art exhibits to be virtual until COVID-19 restrictions changed, artists scheduled from March 2020 through the present were unable to show work in a brick and mortar gallery. The Council redesigned its website so art lovers could easily view photographs and videos of exhibiting artists’ creative work during their scheduled exhibit month. Artwork was and is still available for purchase online. The virtual gallery turned out to be a good idea and is retained for the foreseeable future.

View artwork from July exhibitors HERE. The Council thanks contributing artists for their cooperation in providing photographs and/or videos for their virtual exhibit. If you are interested in learning more about the exhibit or getting in touch with any of the artists, email Curators Maggie Boscoe and Bill Carmel at gallery@lamorindaarts.org or call 925.359.9940. To learn more about the Council visit www.lamorindaarts.org.

This exhibit runs July 1 through 31 during normal Library hours, Mon. – Thur., 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., Fri. – Sat., 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., closed Sun. All libraries are closed Mon., July 5.  Call 925.254.2184 for more information about the Library or visit http://ccclib.org/ All COVID-19 regulations will be observed for your safety.
