Holiday spirit arrives at Cinema Place Gallery
By Patsy Ledbetter
The Hayward Arts Council will sponsor a Holiday Giftique at the Cinema Place Art Gallery in Hayward. Gallery Manager Gail Lundholm is thrilled to host this show at the new Cinema Place Gallery, which has only been open ten months and boasts about eighty visitors a day. This attendance is a huge reception for this wonderful new gallery. Lundholm states, "People will enjoy seeing a variety of well-crafted articles for gift giving. This show will be an example of high quality art among the Hayward Area residents." Art director Valerie Snart is also very excited for the Giftique to take place.
Featured artists are Jean Bidwell, known for her lovely murals around the city of Hayward; Susie Howell, who does beautiful garden sculptures; Peter and Maureen Langenbach, known for their fantastic wood sculptures and gift boxes; and Denise Oyama Miller with her oils, gourds, and art quilts. Some of the other artists are Simone Archer, Marge Barta Atkins, Jaci Daskarolis, Randy Hall, Susan Helmer, Judy Likely, Carol Pulliam, Cindy Sullivan and John and Kathy Ries.
Color and variety are the hallmarks of this show which includes paintings, jewelry, crafts, art quilts, sculpture, and many other mediums. So get into the holiday spirit and prepare to pick out some amazing and unique holiday gifts for your family and friends. Better yet, bring them along to Giftique and let them choose for themselves. You will be glad you did.
