Spring into Summer
Submitted By Jean Witzke
Local artists and crafters have chosen the theme "Spring into Summer" for an art and craft sale to be held June 9 and 10. Cinema Place Gallery, which reopened this spring in downtown Hayward, will be the site of the event.
Wild or romantic hats will be found at one of the booths where hatter Nina Starr and her daughter Heather are both offering their creations. Nina is also a painter, and her artistic bent is reflected in her romantic hats of fabric and flowers. Her daughter uses recycled throw-a-ways to create wildly imaginative creations.
A well-known local potter will be throwing pots with a kick-wheel during the event. Lodema the potter is a familiar presence at the Dickens Fair, Maker Faire, and other gatherings. Her potter's wheel will be set up and ready for work in the large Gallery, and she is happy to talk to visitors about her process. Lodema is both student and teacher. She teaches ceramics classes at HARD and takes art ceramics classes at Chabot College.
Nina and Lodema will be joined by about 40 artists and crafters selling jewelry, hats, art, photography, ceramics, cards, and other hand-made goods.
The event will be open Saturday, June 9 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, June 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cinema Place Gallery is located on B Street, next to the theater. The popular art gallery has created a stir in downtown Hayward since it opened at the beginning of 2011. It was closed for three months when the building changed hands, but it is up and running again now. The "Spring into Summer" art and craft sale will appear between regular scheduled art shows.
The event is sponsored by the Hayward Arts Council; for more information call the office at (510) 538-2787. Office hours are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
