Expressions of Living
By Patsy Ledbetter
When you hear the words, "Expressions of Living" what do you think of? What comes to my mind is cultural diversity expressed in beautiful surroundings throughout the world. It also reminds one of adventure and creativity. If this piques your interest, you will want to visit the upcoming art show at the Adobe Art Gallery in Castro Valley. The show will involve different art forms on a variety of media by exhibiting artists Matt Kowalski, Brendah De Bow, Ron Weil, Leah Virsik, Therese Rittenbach, Jamie Treacy, James Gayles, Nicole Dixon, Valerie Brown Troutt, Emelie Rogers, and Linden Keiffer.
Gallery Director Susan Honda Eady stated, "The You in Me, Inc. organization has brought together a group of local artists, Artists Engaged, to create this exhibit, Life: Expressions of Living. The artwork is created from their own lives-their life experiences and their varied perspectives."
Linden Keiffer, one of the founders of "The You in Me," is the curator of the exhibit, and also one of the artists. There is a wide range of media, including oil, watercolor, acrylic, collage, mixed media, glass, and pastel. There is also 2-d and 3-d work in the show, as well as books.
"Life: Expressions of Living" will run November 5 to December 10, with an artist's reception on Friday, November 5. The receptions are always exciting and informative, giving the viewer a chance to meet and interact with the artists. There will be refreshments and a special live performance by jazz musician Daniel 'D-Lucca" Parenti.
The Adobe Art Gallery is a beautiful, nostalgic building in Castro Valley, located at the end of a lovely park. If you want to expand your horizons and learn more about different life expressions, be sure to visit this exhibit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
