FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

COLORS OF HUMANITY AND KRITIKOS GROUP – SEPTEMBER 4-23, 2021

Elk Grove, August 1, 2021 – The Elk Grove Fine Arts Center will present Colors of Humanity, and Kritikos Group show, September 4-23, 2021. Join us for a First Saturday Art Reception on September 4, 2021, from 4-7PM at the Center.

In our September group exhibition artists are requested to express their views of how color enhances our lives, in all mediums.

There is more than a lifetime of knowledge to gain from master artists and their relationship with color. As we view color through the eyes of great artists we discover their intense passions, unavoidable obsessions and staunch beliefs about the powers of color.

Showing in the Foyer Gallery in September, the Kritikos Group show. The Kritikos are a group of award winning professional artists who exhibit individually, rarely paint together, but who show their work as a group once a year. Their goal is to share with the public the spirit and energy of creativity.

Guests are welcome at the Elk Grove Fine Arts Center while wearing masks or face coverings for the safety of all visitors and staff.

COVID COLLABORATIVE WITH JOE MARISCAL AND LESLIE TROUTMAN – AUGUST 7-26, 2021

Elk Grove, July 5, 2021 – The Elk Grove Fine Arts Center will present COVID Collaborative with Joe Mariscal and Leslie Troutman, August 7-26, 2021. Join us for a First Saturday Art Reception on August 7, 2021, from 4-7PM at the Center.

During the COVID pandemic, communication with friends and family has become very difficult, we have had to rely mainly on social media to keep in touch with each other. To fill the void, two of my artist friends started drawing at least one self-portrait daily. Inspired by their work… I took selfies of myself making faces and started drawing. I then started to include COVID masks on my portraits. – Joe Mariscal

Mariscal incorporates work by his granddaughter Leslie Troutman, who lends her creativity to the artwork seen inside the masks on top of Mariscal’s sketched portraits. Mariscal is a retired art teacher from the San Joaquin Delta Community College in Stockton, California. Troutman is a recent graduate of the Bear Creek High School.

The Center will also show work in all mediums by our represented artists.
