Art Changes Student Exhibition (Opening Receptio

Art Changes Student Exhibition (Opening Reception) Start Date: Saturday 5/4/2024 — End Date: Saturday 5/4/2024 Admission:FREE This is My Alameda Story Alameda Education Foundation returns to the K Gallery to exhibit student visual art and student poetry based on the work of two Bay Area painters as well as the writing of a Bay Area poet. Alex D. da Silva’s Abstract painting Warriors examines Alameda’s history. Bill Jeng’s Lion Dance paintings gave him strength during the Covid lockdown. Shanti Lair-Croom celebrates her heritage in her poem Living Poetically. The inward reflection displayed in the artists’ work inspired the theme of this year’s exhibit: This is My Alameda Story. With support from the Alameda Education Foundation, students from all 9 AUSD elementary schools created art in their classrooms based on the work of the three Art Changes artists. Students combined realism and abstraction in saltwater watercolors. These dream-like paintings offer clues to what is important to each individual student. Students constructed carnival masks that were poignant, vivid and fierce. And students wrote about themselves and the objects, animals and people in their lives. Art Changes student artwork is created and contributed by students at Bay Farm, Earhart, Edison, Franklin, Love, Maya Lin, Otis, Paden and Ruby Bridges Elementary.
