Summer Member Show at Foothill Gallery
By Bruce Roberts
In a quiet little niche along noisy Foothill Boulevard, art fans are invited to appreciate the dazzlingly wide range of artistic talent in the Hayward area. Running through August 2 is the Summer Member Show where members of the Hayward Arts Council from Hayward, Castro Valley, Alameda, and even far off Fresno display their amazing talents.
Fans of painting can admire the work of Barbara Berrner, Kathy Ramirez, Nina Starr, and Ruey Syrop. Standing before Jean Witzke's "Quiet Cove" can transport one to the serenity of a lonely beach. Photography lovers will ooh and aah over the exotic photos of David Steffes, and the hometown Hayward work of his wife, Patra Nesseth-Steffes. The small photo assemblages of Nina Kindblad will hold everyone's interest for both the individual pieces and groupings in which they are placed.
Other skills displayed are the mysterious sumi ink reproductions of Alex Miloradovich, the striking linoleum cuts of Florence Planells Benjumea, and the intricate detailed pencil drawings of Jon Nesseth - all wonderful! Beside this fabulous art on canvas or paper, the display includes exquisite jewelry by Heather Reyes and Shannon Jurich; candles, lotion, and pottery by Kris Egan; poetry by Bruce Roberts; and wire sculpture by Robert Wolff.
This show has something for everyone, all from the creative minds of Hayward area artists. Come see the exhibit Thursdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Park behind 22394 Foothill Boulevard, off of Russell Way. To enjoy the art and meet the artists, attend the reception on Saturday, June 22 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. This exhibit is well worth the time.
