Olive Hyde's holiday show

Submitted By Diane Leys

Featuring the work of 88 artists, Olive Hyde Art Guild's 31st "Holiday for the Arts" offers a gala introduction to the holiday season. The Olive Hyde Art Gallery & Center will be filled with original one-of-a-kind pieces in ceramics, glass, jewelry, scarves, jackets, hats, art quilts, wood, paintings, sculpture, and holiday items for your viewing and shopping pleasure. As the largest Holiday Show & Sale ever offered at Olive Hyde Art Center, finding the perfect gift or personal treasure at a reasonable price is a great way to kick off the holiday season.

At an opening Gala evening on Friday, December 6, guests will be served appetizers, sweets, beer and wine in the tent-covered Gallery courtyard. Festive activities, with musical entertainment each afternoon, continue on Saturday, December 7, and Sunday, December 8. In addition to the shopping wonderland, Saturday's guests will enjoy a classical guitar ensemble and vocalist. Members of Flute Fantasia will also perform. There is no charge to the public for either Saturday or Sunday.

Holiday for the Arts Show & Sale presents high quality, original, one-of-a-kind pieces to the Fremont community. Each artist must submit to a judging process in order to have their work selected for this event.

This year's show will present the work of 22 artists new to Olive Hyde. As one of the new artists, Leilani Bennet will be bringing original silk jackets and scarves. Her luxurious fabrics and creative designs promise to be very popular. Also new to the show this year, Yasala Balaiah, an award winning artist, who received the National Award from the President of India in 1994, will show small framed paintings and batik hangings. Glass ornaments and decorative creations of Fremont artist Brad Medeiros will be available for the first time. Additionally, ceramicist Miki Shim-Rutter's tea pots transform functional to beautiful with each detail.

Several local artists have participated in the Holiday Show & Sale for many years, bringing new works. Among the returning artists, known for her paintings and exquisite hanging quilts, Denise Oyama Miller will display a wide variety of work: mixed media collage paintings, boxed card sets, hand dyed scarves, holiday ornaments and in addition, lovely wool felted hats, scarves, and hand warmers. In addition, her popular socks, knitted on a WWI knitting machine, will be available.

Also returning is glass artist Gigi Erickson, whose work is shown throughout California. After training with a stained glass master artist, Erickson went on to Corning, New York to take classes from prominent glass blowers. In addition to beautiful flowers, Erickson will bring a variety of glass pieces and unique jewelry.

Always a popular artist in the Olive Hyde show, award winning photographer Kay Hille-Hatton, whose works are shown in the Triton Museum in Santa Clara, will bring new photographic work to the Holiday Show & Sale. Hille-Hatton will also bring a selection of items from her current stunning jewelry collection.
