Student artwork on exhibit at Gallery 625 - Davis Enterprise

Student artwork on exhibit at Gallery 625 - Davis Enterprise

Student work from two special Yolo County art programs will comprise two group shows opening Friday at Gallery 625 in the County Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland.

The gallery’s main floor will offer “Colorful Screenprints: The Artists of TANA” and feature the work of student and teaching artists practicing the art of screen printing at Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer.

The second floor will be home to “Ceramic Portraits: Students of Einstein and Midtown Schools” created by Einstein Education Center and Midtown School students.

Located in Woodland, TANA is a community art center managed by the Chicana/o studies department at UC Davis. TANA offers a fully functioning silkscreen studio, Chicano/Latino arts exhibition space, and is also a teaching center working to cultivate the cultural and artistic life of the community.

The artists featured in “Colorful Screenprints” include UCD faculty, emeritus faculty, UCD graduates or undergraduates, a community artist and a Woodland Community College student. They are Carlos Jackson and Malaquias Montoya, TANA’s directors; Jaime Montiel, TANA artist in residence; Maceo Montoya, affiliated faculty; and staff members Gilda Posada, Roque Montez, Olivia Hernandez, Jose Chavez-Verduzco, Rocky Rojas and Eddie Lampkin.

Also located in Woodland, the Einstein Education Center and Midtown schools are operated by the Yolo County Office of Education, and provide an alternative education to students from across Yolo County. This arts education program is offered to students through a partnership with YoloArts’ ArtMix program and Safe Schools Healthy Students.

Professional artists JuliAnn Blanco, MaryAnn Kirsch, Susan Shelton and Joyce Winter were hired by YoloArts to teach watercolor, printmaking, drawing and ceramics to students this school year. The project culminated in the school’s first student art show earlier this month. It was positively received by the community and now is moving to Gallery 625.

“The experience of working with a professional artist was fantastic for the students as they not only had the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques in several media but were able to take a project from an initial idea to completed artwork on display, making it an authentic experience and not just a classroom exercise,” said Susan Cassady, alternative education director for the Yolo County Office of Education.

“Ceramic Portraits” will showcase the ceramic portraits created by Shelton’s students. They learned multiple methods for working with clay and were offered the opportunity to “… explore the idea of the many pieces that make up a person, and the changing nature of those pieces …” according to Shelton’s teaching artist statement.

The exhibition’s opening reception will be attended by many of the featured artists and students and will run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, coinciding with downtown Woodland’s First Friday Art Walk. The reception will also feature Turkovich Family Wines, sponsored by Roth Ranch.

At 7 p.m. Malaquias Montoya, professor emeritus at UCD, will offer a lecture and slide presentation on Chicano art and the murals of Yolo County, including his recently completed mural at the Student Community Center at UCD. The talk is expected to last about 45 minutes.

“Colorful Screenprints and Ceramic Portraits” will run through June 27 at Gallery 625, in the County Administration Building , 625 Court St. in Woodland.

Regular gallery viewing hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For more information, call YoloArts at (530) 406-4844, or visit

Stunning artwork by Grimsby Institute degree students proves to be a draw - Grimsby Telegraph

HUNDREDS of people have flocked to see stunning work by the Grimsby Institute's art degree students.

Organisers said that the annual BA fine arts practice degree show was the busiest they have seen as it opened for preview on Friday.

  1. IMPRESSED: Onlookers admiring Abigail Noble's work at the Grimsby Institute's BA fine art practice degree show 2012

  2. INTRIGUING: Bethany Buks' artwork.

  3. SURREAL: Artwork by Martine Wainwright.

  4. HOMELY SCENE: Jo Smith's 'Two Brothers, Three Sisters And A Mouse'.

The contemporary exhibition shows some of the best work done by 11 degree students currently training at Grimsby Institute.

Art technician Tanya Kennedy, who also did an art degree at Grimsby Institute, said: "This year's exhibition is already one of the busiest I have ever seen.

"There were at least 200 people who came in on the opening night. This is a very well supported exhibition and it seems to be getting more and more popular every year."

Exhibiting artist Abigail Noble said the opening night was "jam-packed".

"You could barely move for all the people inside and there was a great atmosphere.

"We were constantly washing wine glasses throughout the night and there were still hundreds to wash in the morning.

"Hopefully I will sell some of my work this week and the number of people through the door will definitely help", she added.

Martine Wainwright, who is also displaying work, said: "This will be my final exhibition here at the university which is a shame as it is a great space and I like to exhibit here.

"However, I already have a number of other exhibitions lined up for after I graduate."

Toke Dodge, 23, of Louth, came to have a look at the work on display.

"I had heard about a few of the pieces so I came along to see for myself.

"I am really impressed with what I have seen – they are very talented", he said.

The exhibition opened on Friday at the Institute's Cambridge Road campus and continues until Thursday, running from 10am to 4pm every day.
