I hope to have time to go to the opening of Just Sweet: An Exhibition of Creative Confections tomorrow evening between 5 and 7 at Studios on the Park. I’ve never been disappointed in one of their exhibitions yet, and this promises to be a delicious event. We have a bunch of very talented artists here on the Central Coast, and they are likely to be on hand for you to meet at this. Besides getting a feast for the eyes, you can also enjoy a capella music by the Love Notes as you drink wine from Anglim Winery , made right here in Paso Robles. Don’t miss this event, but if you can’t make it this Saturday, you’ve still got until February 27 to get in and see the exhibition.
To give you a bit of an idea of what might happen on an ordinary day at Studios on the Park, I found this video of two of the artists, Lynn Kishiyama and Penelope Lentz, as they collaborate on filling an empty canvas. They leave it at what they call “the stomach ache” stage, but it does give you an idea on how these artists think. You will see some of their finished work if you check out the link on my past activities at the end of this blog. Believe me, when they finish a piece, you’ll want to see it.
If you’ve never been to Studios on the Park across from the City Park in Paso Robles, what are you waiting for? There is so much going on there every Thursday through Sunday that there is no excuse for anyone in the North County to be bored. It’s a great place to come look around, talk to the artists in their studios, and be inspired. Nothing is ever static, either. There are always artists moving in and artists moving out. There’s even a printery. If you’d like to cultivate your own creativity, sign up for a class taught by one of the artists. Even the children can join in the fun. Watch this space for my reports on the events I do get to attend. Meanwhile, you might want to check out some of my past activities there. If you follow the link, you will also get a lot of other links to their contact information and social media pages, besides pictures and videos I have taken of past exhibits.
