Exhibits & Performances
Did you know art students have the opportunity to exhibit their work--both temporarily and in permanent installations? Similarly, our music students have the opportunity to perform live at least twice a year.
* Children's Law Center of California
Recently, the Art Center completed work on a permanent installation for this Sacramento law firm. Student work--themed around cheerful and playful scenes--now adorn the three offices' white walls, bringing optimism and hope to both the lawyers and the clients they serve--babies, chilidren and teens involved in the CPS and foster care systems. A special reception was held Friday, June 15, 4-7 p.m.--all exhibiting artists and their families were invited to this elegant and inspiring event.
* Third Saturday Art Walk in Roseville
Teen drawing and fine arts students just held a month-long exhibit at the Roseville Library as part of this increasingly popular monthly art event. Throughout the summer and fall of 2011, Art Center students also exhibited their work in downtown Roseville. Student work appeared in the lobby of the Roseville Theater May-August, and--for the months of September and October--in the children's room at Blue Line Gallery. Students and their siblings, parents and grandparents attended the Gala Opening Night at the Gallery.
* Kaiser Roseville Pediatric Clinic
The clinic hosts a permanent exhibit of "jungle" themed art work painted here and donated to the hospital system in 2008.
* Music Shows
Music students have bi-annual shows at the Art Center: The 2012 Fall Show took place on Saturday, October 20. Like the 2011 Fall Show, it was held in our leafy backyard, showcased amazing talent and was very well attended (more than 250 people). The Spring Show on March 24, 2012, was equally popular--we estimate more than 300 people squeezed into our farmhouse over the 4-hour span. Both 2012 shows were podcast by the father of a music student, and a local TV reporter, Brian Hickey. These shows allow students to perform solo, with their music teacher or with an ensemble.
