The Spring Show
MARCELLUS GALLERY : April 1st - May 20th
This annual open entry exhibit is hosted by the Kings County Art League and the Kings Art Center. Formerly known as Art in The Park, this exhibit has been presented at various local sites over the past 60+ years and remains a favorite venue for local and regional artists to present their work. When asked what are the most challenging aspects of painting directly in the landscape, “En Plein Air”, Suzanne Willis, a local artist who will be exhibiting her paintings said; “While painting out of doors the challenge is to narrow the subject for the best composition, to simplify it, and to then work quickly before the light and shadows change. You just can’t mess around”.
As in the past, ribbons and cash awards will be presented to the top three winners in six categories: Watercolor; Painting; Photography; Mixed Media & Drawing; Fiber Arts; and Three-Dimensional Art. The judge for this exhibit is Allison Kleinsteuber. Ms. Keinsteuber currently serves as an instructor/supervisor in the art education program at Fresno State, is the Regional Director of the California Arts Projects, and is an art instructor at Golden West High School, Visalia, California.
The Young Masters
BANISTER STUDIO : April 2nd - 20th
Each year the Kings Art Center coordinates an exhibition of artwork by K-12 students in Kings County Schools. This exhibit, titled “THE YOUNG MASTERS”, is sponsored by the Kings County Office of Education.
For the Kings Art Center, this is an opportunity to advance our mission and nurture the future of the arts in Kings County. We also use this as a way to encourage and validate the efforts of Kings County teachers and schools as they work to provide a comprehensive education to our children in spite of budget and time constraints. Most importantly, the Young Masters exhibit has a long history of providing the type of encouragement needed by young artists as they develop their talents.
The exhibit includes drawing, painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, and ceramics. Refreshments and awards will be provided at the opening ceremonies on Sunday April 2, between 3:30 – 5:30 pm. The exhibition judge will be Susan Quinn, an artist and art educator from Fresno. The public is encourage to attend and support these young Kings County artists.
