The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild

 

Dear Artist Guild Members, 

The CIty of Berkeley honored several local artists today at the City Civic Center.  I was one of them.  I was juried into the show last year.  I am the youngest person to be in the show. Berkeley's Mayor Tom Bates spoke at the reception and thanked all of us artists for providing beauty and inspiration in the halls. The chosen art works will hang in the building where the Mayor and staff works in Berkeley on Milvia Street for a year.

Reception For the Exhibition, "Coded Representations of Power" on  January 10, 2105 at the Lyceum Gallery to meet the artists.

Dear Artist Guild Members, 

There will be a Members Meeting on January 24, 2015 from 10:15AM - 12 Noon at The San Diego Museum of Art's Board Room on the lower level.  The Board Chairs will be presenting what their duties are and what their committees are doing now and in the past year.   If you showed an interest in any of the committees you will be contacted in the next couple of weeks to hopefully join us at the meeting and discuss how you can participate. 

Have fun and please check out my artist blog "Along For The Ride." It a collection of interesting stories and photographs that I've taken along the way. It's located at: http://www.johnstraubblogspot.com

I am 15 now and thinking about the different definitions for the word illuminations, made me  look differently at my photographs  when choosing the ones I wanted to submit. When I first became a member at age 12, I probably would have submitted only photographs of Paris at night  of the Eiffel Tower ( I do have some favorites ) or a California Mission  room lit by a candle. Those are obvious photographs that are about lights illuminating the room and a structure. But, this exhibit made me think more about the other definitions.
