Presidents Message

We have been given an opportunity to participate with Art Expressions of San Joaquin in showing our artwork at the Stockton Airport. Artwork will be displayed for about 3 months and will be hung in two areas of the airport, the secure area and in the halls. Pieces to be hung in the halls must be large, minimum 16 x 20 inches including the frame. Pieces to be hung in the secure area can be any size. Sculptures and lamps may also be shown in the secure area and these pieces will be displayed behind glass. Each artist may submit up to four pieces of art. Art Expressions of San Joaquin will select the pieces of art that will be shown.

All artwork must be for sale and the gallery will receive a 25% commission on any sales. There is no fee for showing. All artwork must be hung by May 19. There is a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony that evening so your artwork will receive maximum exposure. The gallery will be responsible for hanging your artwork, preparing labels and being the contact point for sales. All artists must sign a waiver so that the airport is not responsible for theft, damage, etc.

Please tell Dick Massa if you are interested in participating in this showing. Space is limited and only the first 10 artists will be able to take advantage of this opportunity.

We are in desperate need of volunteers for the currently open position of vicepresident of the Stockton Art League, committee chairs for the 2016 Haggin Art Show, gallery publicity/social media and the 2016 Stockton Art League Anniversary.

We are also in need of someone to help out Dick Massa as the Asst. Gallery Director. All of our committees are in need of members to help out. We need your help. Please let Dick Massa know what you are volunteering for. It takes all of us, all SAL members to make the gallery a success.

The next Board of Directors meeting will be on Wednesday April 1st, 2015 at 10am. Members are welcome to attend all board meetings and to express opinions and offer ideas.

Your President,

Pat Price

Artist of the Month - Leona Tobin

Reception • April 11th • 4-7:00pm

Leona Tobin

Oil on Canvas

Artist Leona Tobin is a contemporary expressionist’s painter who works primarily with oil on canvas. She’s a single mother to three beautiful children and a California native. Leona fell in love with art as a child, and takes comfort in the joy and therapy it provides her today. She says that all of life inspires her, and color fuels her desire to paint. She has assisted over 500 children in their creative endeavors and is an author illustrator of her children’s story, “Lilly’s Flight for Peace and the Fussyoderpus.” Her work has been shown at many venues and charity events throughout California and is currently shown at John Hanes Art Gallery in Boonville CA, and at Fume Bistro in Napa CA. Her work can be viewed online and in private installations throughout the states.

Artist Statement:
I have been blessed with a passion for creativity and selfexpression. Every painting is a story related to something I’ve experienced and also dream for. I incorporate simple line work with a lot of color and texture. My goal is to create a painting that evokes emotion while livening up a room. I hope my paintings impact people in a positive light and I hope to inspire others to open up, and also share their gifts with the world.

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.

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.
