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.
