Invitational Art Exhibit
October 2014 – February 2015
With this fourth show we celebrate a full year of art in the hallway! Our General Manager’s office at the helm downstairs allows Ron to hear the wonderful appreciation and interest from members, guests, and visitors as they comment on the continued variety and display of art work.
This current rotation exhibits work by Mira Vista member watercolorist Diana J. Cohen, with an expansive collection of vibrant color and subjects (Diana Cohen’s website: djcwatercolors.com). Prize winning entries and other work of our featured guests are on display by El Cerrito Art Association members Sue Collins and Ling-Te Liao, who were each awarded one of Mira Vista Golf and Country Club’s Merchant Awards at the recent 38th Annual Show in October. Sue Collins has recently added digital art to her talents and continues to work in oil, each medium represented here. Ling Liao returns with a set of six new watercolors, some of his smaller work!
Mira Vista is also honored to display two paintings by the late El Cerrito resident and artist Kenneth Siqueira, with a welcoming view of Mt. Tamalpais in the foyer adjacent to an impressive Buildings Below San Simeon. These were recently donated by collector William E. Johnston to benefit Friends of El Cerrito Library. Prior Artway exhibitor and one of last year’s prize winners, Charlotte Britton recalls him painting at Lake Tahoe and exclaiming, “I’m so happy!.”
By popular request, two of Larry Hatfield’s 36 Views of Mt. Tamalpais, his tribute to Hokusai’s 36 Views of Mt. Fuji, will remain on display in the Hunter Grill Lounge.
Continued thanks for the opportunity to add another dimension to Mira Vista Golf and Country Club with this fourth exhibition.
