Arna Means (etchings) & Art Sanchez (clay sculpture)

"Means to an Art" at the Dolphin

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 1, 5 pm

In January the Dolphin Gallery unites the unique stylings of artists Art Sanchez and Arna Means in their self-titled exhibit, "Means to an Art." An opening reception will be held on New Year's Day, Saturday, January 1, at 5 p.m. Admission is free.

Art Sanchez sculpts primarily in a clay made in Madera, called Hans Sumphf clay. Art says, "In this body of work, my general goal was to create straightforward sculptures, sans political or social commentary, which is always a temptation for me personally. I hope the viewers are able to relate to my works, and appreciate them as well."

Arna Means's artwork has appeared in several venues on the coast and across the nation. She has won several awards for printmaking and enjoys experimenting with intaglio print. She also paints from the natural landscape and uses the human figure in much of her work. She continues to teach art at Kashia School, where she's been employed for the past five years. "Teaching has made me appreciate the many definitions of art and has made me aware of the variety of technique and expressions one may bring to the execution of a piece of art," she says.

Art and Arna's work will be on display through February 2.

The Dolphin Gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call 884-3896 for more information.
