Meet the Artists at the Scotts Valley Library
August 23, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
‘Painting the Golden State’ is Newest Installation in Scotts Valley’s ‘Art in the Library’ Program
Public invited to meet the artists at local reception August 23
August 5 , 2014 – Scotts Valley, CA – Our beautiful golden state is the inspiration for the newest ‘Art in the Library’ program at the Scotts Valley Library. The ‘Painting the Golden State’ installation, running August 16 to November 1, features an exhibit of plein air and studio landscape paintings inspired by the state of California. Contemporary California artists from the Santa Cruz Oil Painters (SCOP) travelled extensively through the state, and their works reflect Lake Tahoe’s sapphire blue waters, the rugged Big Sur coast, cool green redwood forests and Yosemite’s granite splendor. The public is welcome to come to the library and celebrate our love of California’s diverse landscapes through this exhibit of original oil and pastel paintings.
The public is also invited to meet the artists on Saturday, August 23 from 2-4 p.m. at a reception at the Scotts Valley Library, 251 Kings Village Rd. in Scotts Valley. Refreshments will be served compliments of Laureen Yungmeyer at State Farm, and music will be provided by Grant Stoner.
“California is a diverse state in so many ways, and this installation celebrates this state’s amazing landscapes,” said Val Peyser, Art in the Library program chair. “The Santa Cruz Oil Painters group is committed to creating a community of artists with the common goal of providing support and learning along with exhibitions. We are lucky to be able to showcase their amazing talents.”
‘Painting the Golden State’ features works from the following artists:
