Shapes, Shadows and Colors
Peg Almanzar

May 5 - June 19, 2016
Artist Statement:
"My goal is to capture moments in time by observing the shapes, shadows and colors in the surrounding environment. These singular moments are then depicted in landscapes and seascapes using pastels and acrylics. Most inspiring are the beautiful and majestic areas of California and New Mexico."
Through June 19, 2016


Young Artist Alcove:
Veronica Olmos

April 25 - June 12, 2016

Young Artist statement:
"The reason I make art is very simple. I make art because I enjoy it very much. I’m grateful for my ability to create something from nothing. I look forward to seeing the end result and learning from each project.
What influences me most in my pieces is nature. I find nature to be a wonderful source for ideas used in my work.
I hold great appreciation for both ceramic and flat work, despite not having any flat pieces on display here. They both require similar artistic skills, but in their own particular way.
In the future, whether it be for a career or hobby, I hope to continue creating art."
Through June 12, 2016

David Allen blog
Inland Valley Daily Bulletin columnist David Allen keeps up with what's going on at CCMA. He recently wrote about the outdoor sculpture now gracing the front lawn of CCMA.
