Plans are now finalized for our sale of Claire Oak’s art work. On Thursday, May 1 and Friday, May 2, we will have a SAL members only sale. Prices will be discounted to members only during these two days. On Saturday May 3 the sale will be opened to the general public and we will have a free public reception that evening from 4 to 7pm. The sale will last two months, through June. During May we will feature Claire Oak’s watercolors to be followed by her other works in June.
Advertising for the Claire Oak estate art sale is being placed with several publications with readership that includes all of San Joaquin County. Additionally, we are reaching out to art organizations in other areas of Northern California and asking them to inform their members about our sale. The Stockton Record and the Lodi Sentinel have agreed to publish articles about Claire.
We ask that you help make this art sale a big success. We know that Claire had a lot of students and admirers over her many years in Stockton. We would like to reach out to as many of them as possible. If you belong to a local organization please find a way to inform your fellow members about the sale. If you have a Facebook page please post something about our sale for all your friends to see. Include the SAL website, stocktonartleague.org, in your post.
While this special sale is going on, we will not hang any member artwork in the gallery except for our featured artists, Victoria Davila in May and Jun Jamosmos in June.
Our featured artists will have their receptions on the second Saturday of each month from 4 to 7pm.
The next Board of Directors meeting will be on Wednesday April 2nd, 2014 at 10am.

Artist of the Month - Theresa BayacaReception • April 12th • 4-7:00pm
Here in Stockton on the Bayaca Family farm is where my journey as a plant and fiber artist began. Surrounded by objects of nature, I was inspired to draw at an early age. Some of my first drawings were etched with a stick on the ground by the irrigation ditch, or onto the surface of a squash or mel-on. As the fruit grew, the drawing grew and the changes were fascinating. Minute etchings on small fruit became magnified as the fruit matured. From this, I began to observe detail in structure.
The farm environment provided plants and fibers for endless art pro-jects. Drawings included color, fibers included dyes, and eventually led to the process of batik. Through the years, I have had the pleasure of refining my techniques, bother in dyeing fabric and sewing to create unique and original art clothing and fine art batik.
BATIK is an ancient art, evidenced in first-century Egyptian tombs. Through time, batik spread throughout the world. Remnants of batik art have been found in the Middle East, India, Central Asia and Africa. Today it is a highly accomplished art form in different parts of the world especially Asia.
"Batik" originates from the Indonesian word, "ambatik" referring to "dots" or spots of wax on cloth dipped into dye. The process involves a series of wax designs and dyes on cloth. It is work intensive, but the result is worth the effort.
The ancient art of batik is a joyful journey of fiber and color. It gives definition to my art as a Plant & Fiber Artist. As a member of the Stockton Art League, my work is displayed at the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery in Stockton. Previous to that I exhibited in the Tidewater Gallery in downtown Stockton.
Each piece on display is original and recent.
