Loss to the RAA Family

On Thursday, September 1, The Redlands Daily Facts announced that Barbara Morse, supporter of the RAA for many years, died on August 23rd. It stated that she was passionate in her support of the arts and of local artists. One of her many endeavors to support the RAA was to invite artists such as Milford Zornes to demonstrate his watercolor technique at a fund raising luncheon. Barbara and her husband Bob were active on the MCAEEF committee for many years until prevented by health concerns. Their gallery room in their lovely home housed art from many local artists and was treasured.

Barbara is survived by her family: son Robert A. Morse and his wife Mary Lou of Forest Falls: Her daughters, Nancy Morse and partner Casey Cunningham of Santa Fe N.M.; Cathy L. Pounds and her husband Alan; Joanne E. Morse and companion Gene Calderon, all of Redlands, and three grandchildren. If any of you have been close to the family, I am sure that they would appreciate your cards or contacts.

Janet Edwards

Ed Sotello wanted to add:

We were all saddened to hear of Barbara Morse passing. She was an endless supporter of RAA. art education and the arts. She was a great lady and will be missed.

Feasting on the Farm

“Feasting on the Farm” will be held on September 25. This is a “Party for the Necklace” fundraiser for the Redlands Conservancy’s open space efforts. It will be a local farm dinner for 75 guests at our farm and neighboring Powell Farm in San Timoteo Canyon.

Last year, we held a silent auction featuring several local artist’s offerings among other items. We would love to do the same this year, and thought we would ask RAA members (through the newsletter) if they would like to contribute.

Art Camp Teachers Collaborate!

Summer Art Camp 2011 was full of Surprises and fun activities, including teachers such as “Mrs. M.” (Sandra) and “Mrs. Steinweg” collaborating with skills. Ms. Steinweg came in to teach a lesson in Art Camp # 2 where students made Ceramic designs of Hippos with whimsical faces in a cartoon like manner (note photos of returning students Karly L, Andre K.). With Art Camp # 4, teacher Sandra M., came to give a demonstration on the colors for Tie Dying. Ms. Steinweg helped with the tie dying of colors outside while Sandra helped with a Collage lesson indoors.

This was an example of how teachers work together to help out at the R.A.A. These two teachers have worked together for at least 5 years! Yeah for Art Camp, and the Redlands Art Association with another wonderful Summer Art Camp!

Thanks to Mr. John Fisher for his leadership and also to Patty Hayden who set up the Art Camp program running it for many years!

Featured Artists

Lori Worby-Krebs 6/24-7/13

Opening Reception June 24 from 3-5 pm

Lori Worby-Krebs is a local artist who has lived most of her life in Southern California. She worked as a high school counselor and teacher in Redlands for 22 years before she decided to follow her heart and paint. She will be the featured artist June 24-July 18 and will be showing her "Dance of Life" series where she explores the idea of dance with abstract figures. She observed so much hatred and division during the last presidential election that dance became her metaphor for letting go; of political distractions that keep people from understanding what is really important in life.

The idea that we can choose how to dance our way through life and face it's challenges with hopeful outcomes became her theme in this progressing series. She calls her art "IF" art because she starts with an "Idea" and then watches her idea come to "Fruition" on the canvas. She says painting ideas helps her explore truths and lessons in life. Her abstract figurative works are colorful and can range from serious to whimsical but her hope is to prompt the viewer to think about everyday life. She uses a colorful acrylic palette to set up the mood and focuses on shapes and values to tell her story. She hopes everyone will enjoy the show and dance with open hearts. "Dance Your Hats Off" was one of the first paintings for the series.

Jennifer Ali 6/3 – 6/24

You are invited to the Art Show and Opening Reception by artist Jennifer Ali on Friday June 16, 6 - 8 pm. Refreshments will be served. Come meet this professional artist of 36 years and see her most recent work.

Linda Richards 5/13 – 6/3

Featured Artist brings her Father’s Vintage Photos to Life

Featured artist Linda Richards from Redlands will be showcasing her vintage themed oil paintings in her show, “Scenes from my Father’s Past,” at the Redlands Art Association Gallery at 215 E. State Street, downtown, from May 13th through June 3rd.

After her father died, Richards discovered negatives of black and white photos he took as a young unmarried man in the late 30s and early 40s. Some were from stage shows in Chicago or New York, some from road trips throughout the country.

Recognizing their importance, she contacted a couple museums to see if they were interested, but the subject matter and featured cities covered too wide a range.

Now she’s finally found them a home -- through her color oil painting renditions.

Richards says it’s been a fun journey to map out his travels.

In several cases, she’s returned to the places he stood to take his photos. “When I was in New York in December, I found the vantage point at Times Square and also one on Wall Street,” she says. She has also discovered how he took them, from the back of a taxi or perhaps his Dad’s car. One of her paintings from Time Square shows her grandfather in the crowd.

“I love how they tell stories, or how they show quirky vaudeville shows popular at the time, and of course, the street scenes are full of vintage cars and even old Checker cabs,” Richards says.

The biggest challenge was also the most fun, choosing what colors to use. Some feature a limited sepia palette, while others like the Time’s Square scenes are full of color.

She’s happy to give them a new voice through her paintings, and to honor her father by exhibiting his original photographs in her show. She also wonders how many people have old vintage photographs in their family that could be put to similar use.

Richards welcomes all to her reception at the Redlands Art Association on Saturday, May 20th from 4 to 6 pm.

What an amazing Spring we are having! Fabulous wild flower displays throughout Southern California, snow in the mountains this weekend and incredible meteor showers! It’s been a busy month in the gallery with the Horticultural Garden Tour, and the Vintage Redlands Wine and food tasting tour plus many of our artists are participating in local art shows. Many thanks to the local florists and RAA members who made the stunning floral displays for the gallery. But, it doesn’t stop there, Art in the Park and the Festival of the Arts is just a few weeks away. Happy creating everyone.
