Here’s a sampling from two art events at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles you shouldn’t miss. You need to get in before April 29 to see “California Backroads and Kindred Spirits,” landscape paintings by Sheryl Knight and Linda Mutti, and also “Gardens,” with many media, in the Paso Robles Art Association Gallery.
Today was the opening day of the first Phantom Project art exhibition, a juried show in San Luis Obispo. I’m hoping the pictures I took during my time there today will inspire you to go and look more closely at the details you can only see in person. Both 2-D and 3-D art was exhibited with mixed media, paintings, wood, and even fused glass. Many works contained recycled materials used in ingenius ways.

If you were unable to attend the 2011 Paso Robles Festival of the Arts, come along with me and see some of what you missed. Even I couldn’t see all of it. Even if you were there, your experience could have been totally different than mine, since there were so many choices of activities, and so much to see.
The Paso Robles Festival of the Arts comes but once a year. This year it kicked off with an artists reception at Studios on the Park, one of its major sponsors. I check out the “Colors of Water”exhibit, as well as the Paso Robles Art Association Exhibit, “Wine, Women, and Song,” and share my discoveries, as well as some of the winning pieces from these juried exhibits. Please join me.
The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art is a wonderful resource, and I enjoyed seeing the Achievers: The Art of Engineering exhibit there today. I share a bit of what I saw and learned in this post. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that our own Studios on the Park in Paso Robles compares very well to the art museum to the south.
Walk around with me a bit at Templeton’s 2011 Day in the Shade in the park where we will see some of the arts and crafts some talented people have created to offer for sale. Featured here are Designs by Helene, Dan Shattuck’s Recycled Art, and the glass art made from recycled bottles made by Rachel Tamagni. You will also see and hear Alicia R. Broussard, the vocalist for this event, set up and warm up before the official performance time.
