It will be like a family reunion when “Friends” get together for their art show at the Brandon-Mitchell Gallery. The 16 talented artists all work or used to work at Jostens in Visalia, most in the art department where they helped create hundreds of school yearbooks and commercial books and magazines.
The show includes paintings, photography, fused glass and specially designed cross stitch. Some of the artists have spent their whole career at Jostens. Others have gone on to have their own studios and to teach art in schools, 4-H and other venues. Many of them mention in their bios that their work at Jostens helped develop their skills, which they still use today in their varied artistic projects.
The show includes two CSL members, Theresa Doffing, who is showing graphic abstracts, and Chuck Berry, who features manipulated photography.
Others in the show are Tony Avila, Joanie Constable, Kacey Fansett, Pam Sue Harrison, Debbie Ibbs, Mike Mello, Frances Pyles, Melinda Scott, Ernst Shadday, Nadi Spenser, Cook Tollison, Sandy Woo, Geary Wootten and Helena Yungbluth.
The show may also be viewed Mondays-Wednesdays from 9-3 by ringing the bell at the door or after service at 11:30 a.m. on Sundays.
