VISUAL ARTS

Enriching Human Experience through the Arts

Putting art at the heart of a community enhances our lives and inspires us to think beyond the norm. Each artist expresses their feelings and creativity in unique ways. That is why it is so important to feature artists, their work and teachings at both the Bankhead Theater and the Bothwell Arts Center.

ON exhibit: "eARTh"

eARTh is now on display at the Bankhead Gallery from Wednesday, March 4, 2020 and runs through April 27. The new exhibit shows how the earth has inspired three Californian artists, Danielle Eubank, Tobias Tovera, and Barbara Maricle. A special exhibit sponsored by GeoJango in the Founder’s Room off the lobby features maps and infographics on climate change.

PAST exhibit: "Living Large"

The exhibit features large-format 2-dimension works of art by artists from the Bay Area. This exhibit revels in large, lush abstract images that range from seascapes, figurative and nature to non-representational joie de vivre works and is on display through March 2. The Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 12-4 and for ticketed patrons during performances. The Art& Wine Intertwined Reception is Sat Feb 22 from 1:30-3:30. The receptions are free and open to the public.

Exhibiting as a solo artist in the Founders Room is Livermore artist Linda Ryan. Ryan’s collection in the room will be showcasing a retrospective of her works from her figurative to her more recent seascapes. Entitled Sea Change, this exhibit is a visual catalog of Ryan’s journey through different art media to capture light, movement, force and nature.
