The Lamorinda Arts Council presents paintings by Kath Balamuth and Lassie Colebourn plus lace tatting by Yuka Yoshi at the in-person and virtual Art Gallery at the Orinda Library during the month of August. Meet the artists at a reception in their honor on Sat. Sep. 11 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. where light refreshments will be served and enjoy a 3 p.m. Lace Tatting Demonstration by Yuka and Aki Yoshi during the reception.
Balamuth’s theme is “Old Soles” because images of old shoes allowed her to explore painting ordinary objects as art. She thought about how we are all like shoes as we age. “We become old souls and shoes become old soles, but we are still loved,” she said.
Colebourn’s theme for her 16 artworks is “Beyond the Garden.” She hopes her work reflects her love of nature and has some mystery about it. “My work is all about patterns and color so you will see a lot of plants but also some collage-type paintings,” said Colebourn.
Yoshie defines lace tatting as a form of looped and knotted lace needlework made from thread, a form of lacemaking. Her daughter Aki is assisting her with her 3 pm Lace Tatting Demonstration. Don’t miss this unusual opportunity! “Even though you are making something out of one small thread you can make 2D or 3D designs. I like making original designs with musical inspiration, she said. Look for 70 pieces of lace tatting filling both cabinets within the theme “Tatting Symphony.”

Hours are Mon. – Thur., 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., Fri. – Sat., 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., closed Sun. The Library is closed Sept. 6 for Labor Day.
