We are alive and well at aRt Cottage! Our closing reception for the Creatures show was a big hit with live ukulele music on the patio, drinks and lots of friendly faces. We had a wonderful day.
The public is welcome to join us for our next artist reception on Saturday, May 15th from 2-4pm to celebrate our new show, “Slice of Life.” Featuring work from members of the Lamorinda Arts Alliance, this show runs May 4th through June 25th.
LAA’s show theme is about how we’ve all adapted our lifestyles during the pandemic. Each piece might reflect a moment or an era…a part of everyday life or an exceptional memory. This show is about people at work, home and play. The concept of everyday life and this idea of a new “normal” has taken on an especially poignant meaning during the COVID-19 crisis.
The human spirit is alive, strong, and has a sense of humor. In this show, you’ll see a 3D sculpture of “gold” toilet paper, as well as ceramic work that expresses the political turmoil we’ve experienced. The painting we chose for the show poster has become a familiar scene for so many of us…working from home with our pets on the sofa.
Our passion is to support local artists and help them on their creative journey. aRt Cottage is a friendly environment where everyone is welcome to linger and enjoy the art, as well as the gardens. Our art students also love it when a visitor pops in and observes what they are creating. We’re not only a gallery, but also a working studio where art students of all ages can learn to express themselves through creating a masterpiece! Come visit and learn more about us.
We’re located at 2238 Mt. Diablo Street in Concord (2 blocks from the downtown plaza). We’re open Tuesdays – Fridays, 11am-5pm and Saturdays 1-5pm. For more information, visit artcottage.info.
