Sanchez Art Center will celebrate 2019 by offering some fantastic art exhibitions. Opening January 11 are Face to Face, an exhibit of works by Santa Cruz photographer R.R. Jones in the Main Gallery, curated by Susan Hillhouse Leask; California Indigenous Resilience, indigenous artworks from Cali Native Now in the East Gallery; and The Blues from Art Guild of Pacifica in the West Gallery. The opening night reception will be held on Friday, Jan 11, 7–9 pm, with music by Blue City Jazz.
R. R. Jones’ works are drawn from his world travels, mainly in Java/Bali, Mexico, and SE Asia.
Jones mainly photographs people.
Jones and his curator for this show, Susan Hillhouse Leask, will talk about his work on Sunday, Feb 10, at 3:30 pm.
East Gallery will present California Indigenous Resilience, an exhibition by nine indigenous artists from the group Cali Native Now, working in a variety of mediums including acrylic, pen and ink, photography, tule sculpture, and jewelry, facilitated by Kanyon Sayers-Rood of Kanyon Konsulting. The California Indigenous Resilienceexhibit marks the beginning of a year-long observance by the City of Pacifica and the County of San Mateo of the 250th anniversary of the discovery of San Francisco Bay by Spanish explorers. With this exhibit, Sanchez Art Center focuses on the people and culture that thrived on the peninsula and coastside at the time of the expedition.
On Sunday, January 26, 2:30–5:00pm, an afternoon of Storytelling and Culture Sharing will take place in the East Gallery. The afternoon will include the honoring of Patrick Orozco for his legacy of advocacy, honoring truth in history, and protecting sacred sites. A presentation of art by artist Darlene Boyd will be gifted to him at the event.
The Blues is the theme that Art Guild of Pacifica (AGP) has set for its artists to explore in their first 2019 group show in the West Gallery. This conceptual exhibition will include color, musical references, and mood pieces, among others. If the season of winter solstice is about turning within, this is certainly a good place to start.
Sanchez Art Center is located at 1220 Linda Mar Blvd in Pacifica, about a mile east of Highway 1. Following opening night, the galleries are open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 1–5 pm, and by appointment, through Feb 10.
