CALL FOR ARTISTS, Encinitas "Shop Small Saturday", November 28th, E101 Mainstreet

Hello Artists,

E101 Mainstreet would like to invite you to participate in our Shop Small Saturday event on November 28 in Downtown Encinitas. We are in the process of creating a year round campaign to encourage our community to shop small and to shop local.

This event will feature local merchants in our downtown as they offer BIG discounts that day in conjuncture with American Express' Shop Small Saturday.

We also wish to promote local art during this event and that is where you come in! We will be reserving an empty lot along Highway 101 to feature local art for sale. It will be much like a mini art bazaar with live music and live art demonstrations.

Please let me know if you are available for this event. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

ABSTRACTION by Cheryl Ehlers, Dec 5 - Jan 14, 2016, E101 Gallery, Encinitas, CA

ABSTRACTION with  Cheryl Ehlers, "paint what the eyes do not see". 

December 5 thru January 14, 2016, E101 Gallery, 8185 Coast Hwy 101, Encinitas, CA

The Abstraction exhibit is a flow of feeling, thoughts and imagination.  Bright in colors and free flowing shapes, it brings your mind to ponder what was on the artists mind at the very moment of creation? Thoughts become pictures in the mind.  You can feel them.  Placing a brush to a canvas allows the thoughts and colors to flow and is the ultimate experience in painting. 

"Creativity is not duplicating what your eyes see, it is the road that takes you onto many unknown paths. The end result is artistic expression and reveals the personality of an artist at that moment in time. I always want to be evolving in my art techniques", states Ehlers

Ehlers is an accomplished and published artist. Her exhibition portfolio includes venues domestically from San Diego to New York City, as well as internationally including, France, Italy, Germany and New Zealand. This exhibition will showcase Ehlers’ works in mixed mediums and brings color to the surface.

She is the current City of Encinitas, Arts program assistant, managing 3 galleries, and the founder and owner of The Stardust Arts, a youth art program that provides the development of creativity and imagination to those that have the desire and drive to experience art and obtain the academic enrichment it provide to the children in schools today. Teaching over 12,600 students, in school programs since 2009, The Stardust Arts is supported by community donations, grants and sponsorship's and is recognized by the California State Assembly for its contributions to art in local communities and the San Diego Board of Supervisors.

Thank you to the San Dieguito Art Guild for sponsoring The Stardust Arts upcoming exhibition on December 5th at the Encinitas Civic Center Gallery.  Stop by and view the student art.

Linda Litteral, Beauty: The Hidden Story at the Encinitas Community Center Gallery

New exhibition by Linda Litteral, November 5-January 14, 2016

Linda Litteral, Beauty: The Hidden Story, Ceramics

Armor: Through beauty, my visual language talks about the psychological constructs made by abused children to protect their psyche during the abuse. The delicate and ephemeral leaves of the porcelain armor would not protect someone, but the idea of the woods as a safe place in your mind does.
