Opening Night at the "Reading Between the Lines" Show at the The Frank Bette Center for the Arts in Alameda,September 7-29, 2007.
Opening night at the Frank Bette Center was really good! There were over 100 people in attendance. The Frank Bette Center for the Arts has a new show open on the first Friday of each month. They show work of a wide variety of artists.
Kathe Welch had three prints and one large drawing on the walls of the gallery. She won the Sponsor's Choice Award for her Ink drawing 'Month' and her prints fit nicely with the theme of the show. Kathe uses a lot of text in her work and reading between the lines is always necessary.
Heather Piazza was represented by one of her first linoleum block prints. 'Juxtapose' is the combination of two similar images, cut differently and printed in different colors on different papers then put together to contrast yet compliment.
Graham Birds' photograph 'Between the lines' shows a blue structure framed by white trees. His photo evokes a peace that we often feel when we think about nature and yet shows the way nature coexists with modern industry.
