The Colony at Loft 204 celebrates Earth Day with an April exhibit featuring Sumi Foley as artist of the month. Ms. Foley uses discarded kimonos in her fabric arts using several pieces of fabric to form a meaningful scene.
Ms. Foley was raised in Osaka, Japan in the 1960s where she learned sewing and other needlework techniques from her grandmother. See her hope for the future with her series of 3 pieces titled “Nature Heals I, II and III.”
In order to look toward the future, Claremont’s Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden (RSABG) is digging through its past.
After several years of work delving into the garden’s archives, staff at the botanic garden present their findings through their latest exhibition “Where They Grow Wild,” a collection of artwork reflecting the history of southern California’s wildflowers.
The RSABG exhibit is one of 3 displays under the greater theme of “When They Were Wild,” a collaboration with the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants and the Huntington Library.
Opening reception at Galleria Beretich on Sunday, March 24 from 3 to 6 p.m. Internationally recognized watercolor painter, author and twice president of the National Watercolor Society, Gerald Brommer.
