A celebration of "oldies but goodies" makes a splash on canvas
Submitted By Lilia Reynoso
Always and forever will the tunes, style, and culture of oldies remain in our hearts. So, be ready for a night of local talent, the oldies we all love, and plenty of fun as the Art Association of the East Bay, Inc. (AAEB) kicks off their spring 2012 art show, "Dedicated to You." This evening of music and wine accompanied by a collection of art pieces by over 12 local artists should not be missed!
Among a handful of fresh and talented artists that will be featured in this show is well-known Bay Area photographer, Felipe Vazquez, also known as NewarkCalifaz, who beautifully captures the Chicano/a culture through his photos. In addition, accomplished artist and academic administrator for the Masters of Fine Arts at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, Leanne Elrod Rodriguez will be showcasing some of her art. We will also see the latest art from artist Lilia Reynoso, who currently has a piece displayed on BART promoting healthy communities.
The opening night is Saturday, March 10 from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Sun Gallery in Hayward. The exhibit will be running from March10 through April 7. This is a free event, including live music and wine (with purchase of ticket) for those 21 and over. The funds from this show will be used to further the Art Association of the East Bay's mission to advance creative abilities in all aspects of the "arts"- to continue to support and develop art activities and upcoming artists within our communities, and to eventually establish a permanent regional art center.
The Art Association of the East Bay, a public benefit non-profit, has been promoting and supporting art within the East Bay for the past eight years. We have done this by giving scholarships to high school students pursuing a future in art, working with local high schools to display their art publicly, and making art accessible to youth coming specifically from underrepresented communities, through community/school murals and a youth photography program.
Jesus Cruz, one of the organizers of this show, describes "Dedicated to You" as, "A very unique event and it is the perfect marriage of art and music. The 'oldies' genre has remained popular throughout the years because of all the timeless classics released in the '50s, '60s and '70s. Dedicated to You, will stimulate your audio and visual senses and make you feel nostalgic whether or not you grew up in that era."
This show is guaranteed to cast a spell on you.
