"It is Art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance, and I know of no substitute for the force and beauty of its process...Henry James
Do you: Love art? Love to talk to artists? Have a glass of wine? Visit with friends and make some new ones? Your lucky day is coming soon. Opening day is April 8 for the 33rd Annual Spring Art Show in the Bear Valley Springs Country Club from 4 until 7 p.m. The Show is open for the week leading up to Easter, with docents in attendance to assist your enjoyment by answering any questions you might have regarding the purchase of the displayed art. If the OTCC is open, there will be someone with the art. Come on down. After the Opening, admission during the week is free to all.
But the Gala Opening Reception, on April 8, is the most fun! There is a raffle of special art pieces of varied media that have been donated by some of our favorite artists. There is a watercolor by Valerie Provines, a metal and marble kinetic sculpture by David Rivas, an oil painting of Vasquez Rocks by Terry Sonntag, a photograph by local photographer, Arden Howell, and a glass piece by Lynne Freeman. Tickets for this raffle are available for $2 each ticket or $20 to get 12 tickets. All the tickets go into one basket, so having more is best. The raffle will be at approximately 6:30 p.m. Delicious hors d'oeuvres and beverages will be available, and you can purchase a glass of wine. The Opening Reception is free to members, but you can also visit for the price of $10 for each adult and $5 for attendees under 12. Membership is $15 for one or $30 for families, so please join. It supports the Bear Valley Springs Cultural Arts Association, a 501(C)3 tax exempt status.
Our Donor this month is Valerie Provines, an accomplished oil painter, guitarist, published poet, and now water colorist. She has a charming painting of "The Bicycle by the Water." Valerie has been lucky enough to teach art to students ages about 4 to 9 at the Pacific Oaks College's Art Studio in Pasadena. After 30 years in the Arcadia area, Valerie moved to the Tehachapi area 7 years ago. She enjoys doing plein air painting in oils and water colors. Her favorite is little watercolors that are 'just plain fun.' Look for her at the Reception, along with the other wonderful generous donors.
BVSCAA is a non-profit organization that uses the income for activities to fun enlightening talks, diverse music programs, and scholarships for talented Tehachapi area graduates each year. Be sure to visit.
