Presidents Message

The jury is out and the entries are rolling in for the Stockton Art League’s bi-yearly Haggin Museum Juried Art Show. At the present time, we have registered 37 artists from around the country showing 78 paintings. In addition, we are celebrating the work of 5 sculptors and 16 sculptures. The show promises to be the best ever, and as we know from experience every show does prove to be more outstanding than the one before it. Remember that we have a special fund raising drive to support this program. SAL awards over $5,000 to winning artists in this National Exhibit. Please consider a kind donation to this program, any amount helps.

This month, we are very excited to announce that we have received a grant to support our all new children’s program. Called YAP (Youth Art Program, but YAP sounds more fun), the series of art classes is for children between the ages of 5 and 13. The classes will be held on Mondays at the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery during the month of June. Please look further into the Collagraph for specific information. I would like to give a special shout out to Mary Little and her team for taking this program from an idea to making it a reality.

Again, I want to remind all of our members not to forget our artists of the month. May will feature local artist and educator Ronald Houck, who in true educational spirit is also inviting some of his students to hang their work beside his in the show. As usual, the reception will be held on the second Saturday of the month, May 14th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The next Board of Directors meeting will be on Wednesday May 4th, 2016 at 10am. Members are welcome to attend all board meetings and to express opinions and offer ideas.

Your President,

Renee Koon

Artist of the Month - Ronald Houck

Reception • May 14th • 4-7:00pm

Ronald Houck

Ronald Houck was born in Salem, Oregon, but grew up in the greater San Francisco Bay Area of California. Ronald received an MFA in Figurative Painting from the Academy of Art University San Francisco in 2010 and a BA in Studio Art from California State University Sacramento in 2006, with Magna Cum Laude honors.

He is best known for his expressive and figurative oil paintings that capture the mood, emotion and spirit of people in a variety of environments. Blending traditional and contemporary painting techniques, the artist compels viewers to uncover the mysteries and narratives within his work.

Ronald has been privileged to work with several nationally and internationally renowned artists throughout his education, such as Craig Nelson, Warren Chang, Tae Park, Dean Larson, Zackary Zdrale, and Baoping Chen.

Ronald has done commissioned portraits for prominent patrons in Central California and is beginning to achieve national recognition as an artist through his award winning work displayed at the Haggin Museum in Stockton, CA in 2010 and through gallery exposure and exhibitions. Ronald is currently teaching as an adjunct art professor for Cosumnes River College in Elk Grove, CA and for San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, CA. He also recently taught for three years at the Art Institute of CA, in Sacramento and Sunnyvale; where he taught beginning and intermediate drawing, painting, design and color theory, life drawing and gesture. He currently resides in Pine Grove, CA

SHARES Program Chaning

Our SHARES program with S-Mart is ending March 31st. And store cards previously used will no longer be valid.

New SAL gallery guidelines for membership

1. Each individual/artist must be a member of the Stockton Art League, and pay one of the existing membership dues levels. Minimum dues are $35/year.

2. Each member may enter up to 4 pieces of their original art work in show (every 2 months). Work must be framed (unless the canvas sides are painted as part of the work) and have a wire hanger.

3. Art work shall be recent work done within the last 4 years. All art work must be for sale. Once submitted, work will remain for the duration of the show, unless it is sold. It may then be replaced without additional fee. Displays may not be changed nor entered after show is hung without consulting Aleen, Gallery Director.

4. There is a $5.00 charge for each painting entry into 2 month show. Exceptions are as follows:

5. There will be a new exhibit approximately every 60 days. Art work may be re-entered every 6 months. Gallery receives 30% commission on all sold work. Schedule is published in the Collagraph Newsletter.

6. Art work will be accepted at the discretion of the Gallery Director. Any unresolved issues will be referred to the Board of Directors for review.

7. When exhibiting their art in Gallery, member is required to staff a minimum of 6 hours per month for each month their work is shown. Shifts are usually 3 hours twice a month, or one 6 hour shift - depending on member preference. If member is unable to staff at their scheduled time/date, it is their responsibility to find a replacement. If a replacement cannot be found, please notify the Gallery Director at least 24 hours in advance.

8. At time of entry into 2 month show, a calendar will be available for staffing signup. 9. For new members who have a working, full-time paid position of at least 5 days, OR a medical problem that would prevent staffing, the bi-monthly entry fee will be $7.00 per painting (four maximum) with 40% commission to the gallery on each piece sold.
