Color Blooms at “Breaking Ground” Exhibit

“Color Blooms” ©2015 Rebecca Lambing
“Breaking Ground” is on view through May 4th at San Mateo City Hall’s art gallery. Featured are nearly 30 works created by 19 members of the Peninsula Women’s Caucus for Art. I was privileged to help curate the hanging of this show and think it all came together beautifully! My piece, “Color Blooms” is a bit of a departure from my normal subject matter as I attempted to capture the feeling of lushness, vivid color and excitement as spring emerges after a long winter. There was a wide interpretation of this theme and all make it worth a side-trip to stop in and see the creativity. Look for the poster (shown below) as you enter the building to direct you to the gallery.

Artists showing are:
Beate Amler, Lorraine Capparell, Grace Cohen, Kris Idarius, Patricia Keefe, Annamaria Kusber, Rebecca Lambing, Ellen Lee, Tanya Lin, Marie LaPrade, Nancee McDonnell, Alysanne McGaffey, Yvonne Newhouse, Irene Schlesinger, Bonnie J. Smith, Deanna Taubman, Leigh Toldi, Susan Varjavand and Marian Yap.

March 11 – May 4th, 2015

It is with great pleasure that I announce that one of my paintings has been selected for this year’s Dart for Art fundraiser for Lymelight Foundation. This is a fun and energetic event that benefits youth and young adults with Lyme Disease. For the price of your ticket, you get to enjoy a lively cocktail party followed by a well-organized frenzy (in small groups) to claim a piece of art as yours to take home!

“A Meditative Moment” will be available for attendees to choose, among many other juried pieces. This year’s event is on March 6th in Burlingame, California. It’s for a great cause and promises to be an enjoyable evening, as well. For more information and to sign up follow this link to Dart for Art.

Many of the donating artists will be in attendance and available to discuss their artistic process or motivation. Yes, I’ll be there and hope to see you.

“Seasons of Life” Exhibit at the Peninsula Art Institute

It’s been a great summer full of travel and good memories! We thoroughly enjoyed my daughter’s last months at home before leaving for her freshman year of college at UCLA. We know all too well how much will change after Hannah gains her independence in the next few months with so many new experiences and responsibilities. She’s settling in, doing well, and loving it. Isaac has also returned to school for his final year of studies. It sure is quiet around here.

So for me the “Seasons of Life” theme for the upcoming Peninsula WCAs group show at the Peninsula Art Institute’s gallery has hit home. As official “empty nesters” it’s the season of change at our house. This is our time to focus on building relationships at home while continuing to support our kids from a distance. It’s a time to go inward and learn more about ourselves, as well. “A Time for Herself” explores just that... things have slowed down and demands have lightened. There is now time to think about all the great things that this life is about and how to make the rest of it just get better and better. The quiet probably won’t last for long, but she’s going to enjoy it for now!

I hope you can make it to view the artwork that will be up from November 20th through January 4th at the PAI gallery in Burlingame, California. There will be 16 local peninsula artists displaying unique pieces that show what “Seasons of Life” means to them. Click on the “Current Shows” tab above to see more details of the exhibit.

“Our Natural World” Art Exhibit

Detail: “Orchard Shade”, 8"x10", © 2013 Rebecca Lambing
I am participating in a group exhibition at the Twin Pines Art Center in Belmont, California that takes place February 5th thru February 27th. The petite painting shown above is hanging, as well as another coordinating painting of a single tree. The Art Center is in the historic Manor House and is a beautiful venue in which to hang out and take in the art. Besides the welcoming gallery, the trees and open space in Twin Pines Park help make it a place you will likely want to visit again once you have gone there.

You are invited to the opening reception on Sunday, February 9th from 2pm to 4pm. You can see more details by clicking HERE or on the “Current/Past Shows” tab above. I may miss the beginning of the reception so I can attend my daughter’s last performance in her school’s winter play but do plan to attend. Let me know if you’re counting on me being there so I’ll be sure to make it asap!
