The annual Pasadena Society of Artists October exhibition is scheduled for the month of October at the Pasadena Central Library. The show runs from 1 October through 30 October and may be viewed during the regular library hours.
This show differs from past ones: there is no designated theme, submitted work may be older than three years and there is no required artist statement. We have over 40 works for the show, and each piece needs to be no larger than 12 inches in any direction due to the size of the shelving in the exhibition cases.
As always, the media and artistic style vary widely, from non-objective to photorealistic. There are traditional paintings and small sculptures. With such variation, there is bound to be something that will speak to every viewer.
This show has a number of purposes. Of course, for artists it is always nice to have a venue to display one’s artistic expressions. The show is also a gift to the City of Pasadena and the residents. PSA has been part of the local scene for over 91 years. It is also an outreach to artists seeking organizations such as PSA. It was through one of the library shows and through the recommendation of a friend that I applied for membership with PSA.
The three pieces I will display in the exhibition are Flight, Landfall, and Guides. All are mixed media on Garzapapel watercolor paper.
