May is edging away.

It will soon be your last chance to see the beautiful watercolors by Jean Janssen, this month's featured artist.
   We had good coverage of her work in the Lodi Sentinal this month  you can see it here.  http://www.lodinews.com/lodi_living/arts_and_entertainment/article_856dd184-f5a3-11e4-b39c-9371f149ef05.html
It  brought in some people new to our gallery.    You can read her artist statement and see some examples of her work on our web site.    Please follow the link on her name.    Usually we only see one piece at a time from Jean - this is a veritable feast of delights for your eyes.     Get there this week.  

Next month, the long awaited featured artists are Sam Bassett and Pepe Poole.    Otherwise knows as Studio Samba.   Their statement is also on the web site.  In the featured artist section scroll down to June, you will see their smiling faces there.   Three dimensional works, wall art, it will all be a surprise what they bring in to show.     I'd encourage you to attend the artist reception on the First Friday evening of June, Art Hop.     6-8:30 p.m.    It's a great chance to visit with the featured artists and their guests and other members who are showing work in June.      I can hardly wait to see what they have for us.  

Here is a message from JC. 
Next weekend May 30 and 31 is gallery change over.  Please pick up your artwork from the May show and bring in artwork for the June show.  Theme for the June show is Animal Planet.  Be sure to sign up for your gallery shift when you bring in your work.
