Artist of the Month -
Bobby Walls

Reception: May 13th | 4-7:00pm
Bobby Walls

Bobby Walls was born in Madera, CA, in 1948. His skill and passion for art was developed while attending Madera schools. In the 12th grade he received the Outstanding Bank of America award for the Top Artist in his class of seniors. His college major was art education and he attend Fresno and San Diego City College and College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA, where he received his BFA degree with distinction in print-making. He went on to receive his MA degree from California State University, Fresno. He was honored by being an instructor of painting and art design at both Fresno City College and Fresno State University.

While attending CCAC, he was selected by a jury panel to show one of his prints. He was awarded membership into the California Society of Printmakers (CSP). The print “Symbolic Woman” is in the Black Artists on Art, Volume 1 includes two of his prints. Two New York magazine publishers also reproduced two of his prints. One of his prints was selected to go on an international tour in South America. His print “Harriet Tubman” was on display in Gov. Jerry Brown’s office during his first term as Governor. This was a show of selected Black Artists in California. Currently Bobby is a member of the Stockton Art League and is represented in many private collections. Recently he has completed illustrations for the book Gems to Grow By, written by his twin sister, Barbara Herron.

Demo Artist of the Month - Raoul Mora

Reception: May 11th | 3-5:00pm
Raoul Mora

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 as well as work that the artist has done at home and brought in for this purpose. There is no charge for this session although we do have a small optional raffle at this meeting.

Weather permitting, the drawing session on Thursday, May 11, will meet at Caldwell Park on Pacific Ave. behind the S-Mart Grocery Store. If the weather is bad the class will meet at the Stockton Art League.
