At Greg Kucera Gallery is Juventino Aranda with a variety of paintings and sculptures. I do not know much about him, but he is a young up and coming artist from the Walla Walla area if I am not mistaken. His website is here.

I just received a notice about one of my favorite annual shows, the Scripps Ceramic Annual, at of course, Scripps College in Claremont California.  Luckily I'll get a chance to stop by and see it this year.  Always a great show!

 This drawing with the fabric sample is a good example.  You could see where he was going with things.

I ended 2016 with a couple of museum trips. The first of which was to the Museum of Pop Culture or the ex-EMP.  We went down there mostly to see the Star Trek exhibit, with screen used costumes, models and props from the various TV shows and movies.  

On an art note, there was the WOW show or world of wearable art exhibit.  Apparently this is a once a year competition that takes place in Australia.

A lot of fun and whimsical pieces.  I enjoyed the videos of...
