Cheryl Long has been painting for about 8 years. Her first art class was in 2007, and dealt with acrylics. She enjoyed this instruction, and immediately looked around for more classes. The following summer she found OLLI at the University of the Pacific. After that, she was HOOKED! She retired from teaching in 2009 and has split her time between family (2 sons, a daughter-in-law, and 3 grandchildren) and her love for painting.
Currently she has become obsessed with watercolor on yupo. Her show represents the exploration with this media. Cheryl loves color, color, color and so says… "Welcome to My World on Yupo."
As some of you know, when foster kids are moved from family to family, from home to home, it is often an unpleasant experience. To add to their difficulties, they are often given just a garbage bag to hold their possessions for the move. The message this sends is totally the wrong one. They need to know they and their things are not trash that somebody cares.
Like others who have gotten involved, I’ve been collecting new and gently used suitcases, backpacks, and duffel bags, giving them a quick check-over for cleanliness, and delivering them to social workers to pass on to the kids. Over the last couple of years, we’ve spread the word up in the foothills well enough to have collected and delivered over 200 suitcases. Unfortunately, the need is nearly twice that! So, I’m asking my artist friends if you have any suitcases sitting around, that you pass them on to kids who have almost nothing.
I’m willing to collect at the Gallery and deliver them. Thanks for your kind thoughts and actions.
Note: Bring your suit-cases to the gallery and Linda Abbott Trapp will come and pick them up.

SAL offers opportunities for artists to reach their goal by implementing a drawing class under the superior direction of longtime art instructor Raoul Mora and supplying a beautiful gallery for the members to show their work. Raoul Mora, who demonstrates new techniques, gives personal assistance as needed and offers very useful critiques on the work that is being done in the studio as well as work that the artist has done at home. There is no charge for this session although we do have a small optional raffle at this meeting.
Due to the summer hot weather, the group will meet at the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery.
Raoul will conduct the critique at the near end of our drawing session, so bring in one piece of your recent work as well as a pencil and paper for the drawing portion.
The next YAP classes will be held in March of 2018. If interested please sign up your children early as classes fill up fast.
