The opening reception for YR31 was held June 3rd. It was a good turn out in spite of the 93 F temperatures. Rick Whitacre from San Jose, CA and Janice Pluma, from Paso Robles CA, both exhibiting artists, traveled to Hanford to be in attendance. The visitors really appreciated having the opportunity to talk to the artists about their art.
John Robinson, the curator of the exhibit, did an excellent job of installing the art. The art was well positioned. The lighting was expertly done to show each piece at its best. Bruce Kane, Executive Director, Kings County Art Center, and the volunteers made everyone feel welcome. It was a wonderful addition having live music performed by Tyler Richards on the keyboard, and Martin Almaraz on the guitar.
Thank you to all the volunteers whose hard work made the opening reception a pleasure.
Yosemite Renaissance is very excited to share the YR31 exhibition with the Kings County art community. The exhibition will be on display till July 18th. It will then travel to the Carnegie Art Center, Turlock, CA, August 11th – October 9th.
