A local happening is inviting us to get artsy while enjoying our next cup of Joe.
Arts of Point Richmond recently rolled out its latest art exhibit in collaboration with Kaleidoscope Coffee, located at 109 Park Place in Point Richmond.
The exhibit, titled “Holding Up Half the Sky,” is already set up and will remain on display at the coffee shop through Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017.
“The theme celebrates all facets of womanhood, including women’s resilience and wisdom—characteristics especially critical in these volatile political and cultural times,” said Arts of Point Richmond’s Irene Hightower in a correspondence.
According to Hightower, the art exhibition features both light-hearted and thought-provoking artwork and Anne Austin, curator of the San Pablo Art Gallery, juried the show.
The community is invited to a reception that is being held at the coffee shop on Friday, September 8, 2017, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. during which they can meet the exhibiting artists, enjoy light refreshments and sample some of the café’s specialty treats.
Artists who will be exhibiting their works will include Suzanne Cerny, Bob Colin, Rita Gardner, Sharon Goods, Irene Hightower, Kelly Nicolaisen, Virginia Rigney and Sharon Taylor-Ward.
Per its website, Arts of Point Richmond (AOPR) is a member-supported organization of artists and art supporters who live or work in the local community, West County and beyond. Its goal is to enrich and enliven the community through the awareness of and support for local artists who create visual, performing and literary arts.
