During the month of December, the gallery is having a small works fund raiser. All small works have been generously donated by mem bers. We have fine art, jewelry pot tery, ceramics and textiles. Included in the fine art is a selection of matted drawings by Claire Oak. All of these original oneofkind art pieces will make great holiday gifts and have been priced for quick sales.
The small works are in addition to our regular bimonthly art show. Original member artwork is dis played and is also available for sale. Original artwork is a wonderful and unique holiday gift. Your Stockton Art League Board of Directors wish es everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
The next Board of Directors meeting will be on Wednesday December 3rd, 2014 at 10am. Members are welcome to attend all board meetings and to express opinions and offer ideas.

Artist of the Month - J.C. StroteReception • December 13th • 4-7:00pm
Years ago, while attending a Craft fair, JC saw fused glass jewelry for sale and innocently asked how one could learn how to make it. She took classes at one of the few local fused glass studios offering classes at the time, Rainbow Glass in Sacramento. After the second 3 day class, she was hooked on glass. JC was he only person in the class that didn't come from a stained glass background, so she didn’t even know how to cut glass. But that didn’t stop her. JC bought her first glass kiln and a passion for all things glass was begun.
She still takes classes and teaches gives them as well. She has become an award winning artist in art shows and has sold her work across the country in small galleries, gift stores and winery tasting rooms. She donates annually to the KVIE Auction. You may also see her work at local charity auctions. She is an active member in the Lodi Art Center, Elsie May Goodwin Gallery and the San Joaquin Potters Guild.
Her work spans styles from jewelry to art pieces that hang on the wall and functional pieces such as plates and bowls. Most of her work includes glass but she also works with clay and jewelry pieces that use beautiful beads she makes herself or natural stones from other glass artists.
She works in a studio located in her barn on her 6 acre property which includes a 4 acre vineyard. Now retired from her job as a computer scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, she is active in the local art community and, of course, works in her studio. Working alongside the tractor and, other farm equipment is a unique experience. She has 7 kilns ranging in size from a 6 inch jewelry kiln to a large 42 inch custom kiln. She has divided her barn studio into two distinct areas, the glass studio and the lay studio where she is learning to create hand built clay items.
