Artist's Guild of the East Bay

By Patsy Ledbetter

The Hayward Arts Council is proud to host an exhibit featuring work from the Artist's Guild of the East Bay. This unique and colorful show runs through February 17 at Foothill Arts of the Bay in Hayward. A reception will be held Saturday, January 28 from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. All are welcome.

Established in the 1950s, the Artist's Guild of the East Bay is made up of a small group of artists focusing on two-dimensional art that meet four times a year. Their art is exhibited in several locations throughout the area. In addition to the Foothill Arts of the Bay Gallery exhibit, their work is currently showing at Foster City Art Gallery.

Fourteen artists are participating in the Hayward show displaying a variety of mediums and passions. Guild member Ellen Bailey has been creating art work since childhood. Watercolor is her medium of choice; she believes magical things happen when water and paint are applied to paper.

Barbara Berrner is a California native and has been working on two-dimensional art for many years.

Carol Bettencourt believes the world of art is a fantastic place to be. It is an adventure in learning to creatively express oneself.

Painting since age 12, Ethel Whitfield Morgan came to California from Ohio and loves to paint the world as she sees it.

Doris Okano is enrolled in art education in Castro Valley. She uses primary pastels and outdoor scenery, including desserts.

Edward Ortman grew up in Oakland loving art, drawing, printing, and silkscreen. He has over forty years of experience in graphic arts, working as a silkscreen printer and a lithographer. When he retired, Ortman returned to his first love, oil painting.

Jane Tsushima began painting in 1975. Today she works in a variety of mediums and has won awards in many of them.

Inspired by the beauty of watercolor, Kathy Zanger began painting in 2006.

Barbara Andreasen, Shirley Younger, Zeneida Lambertus, Ellen King, Eleanor Joslin, and Anna May Tandi are also contributing artists.

You won't want to miss this unique show. Enjoy the lovely and admirable works of each of these artists.
