An Artist’s Journey Through the Cosmos
Keith Klingonsmith

Spotlight Gallery
"I enjoy the process of coming up with a concept, or idea, and developing it through the art media into a final work of art. Creating an image in my own style lets me express my ideas with some humor and a hope to delight the viewer. My art is meant to expose the community to a different style of art, as well as, to get people to question the possibility of alternate realities."
-Keith Klingonsmith

Bamboo Madness - Sharon Algozer

Spotlight Gallery
The beauties and intricacies of nature constantly inspire us to protect it and to look for parallels in our societal and personal lives.  The bamboo in my garden continuously expands, jumps around, and takes over in unexpected ways and directions, which can offer lessons to us individually and as a community.

Too Close to the Edge
Southern California Collage Society

Main Gallery
Collage is an artistic revolution.Born during the height of modern art’s most imaginative, innovative movements, it changes the story, requiring artists to use paper as paint to create masterful art. Through this simple twist, artists explore the depths of their creativity, incorporating and celebrating multiple variations of image, text, and papers that range from the hand-made to found items. The Southern California Collage Society invites you to join the revolution by taking a leap off the edge where paper ends and art begins.

Multiple Personalities - Carolyn Cunningham

Spotlight Gallery
Stick with one style and one medium?  Carolyn doesn’t think so!!!  Carolyn’s experience as an Art Education major exposed her to a variety of media and styles, and the art in this exhibit gives us a taste of some of the media she has chosen to explore over the years.  She hopes this inspires some of the rest of you to get out of your ‘comfort zone’ and try something new.   You may find a whole new artistic personality emerge.

Pigs to Pig Iron - From CCMA's Collections

Line Gallery
In 1942, with the growing need  for steel  to build ships to  fight  in World War II,  Henry J.  Kaiser secured  a  tract  of  land  in Fontana  that  had  been  a  pig farm.  There he built  the  first steel mill in the Pacific Coast states. One  of  the  civil  engineers  on the  project  was  Carl  Hooper Gilman,  whose  wife  Esther Bruton  Gilman  was  an  artist and  muralist.  Through  Carl, Esther  gained  access  to  the Kaiser  Steel  construction  site and  painted  a  series  of  eight watercolors  to  depict  the transformation.
