Opening at the ACGA National Juried Exhibition

Last night was the opening of the ACGA National Juried Exhibit at the amazing City of Brea Art Gallery. I announced the show in a previous post. I got to meet with Beverly Crist who represented ACGA at the opening. From about 500 entries, the juror, Carol Sauvion, selected 80 works of clay and glass, some of them truly amazing ! While my eye was more atuned to ceramics, the glass works selected merit the attention. If you have the time and you are in the area, stop by the gallery to enjoy a moment in clay and glass.

Talking about the gallery, I was really delighted how well all the works were displayed. Emphasis was given 100% to each individual piece, both with the appropriate lighting and the right amount of space between the works, so that one can admire them without distraction. The gallery director,Christina Hasenberg, and her team know how to put up a good show. Bravo !

Below are a few pictures of the event, notably Best in Show, and works by artists in the San Diego area.
