LAC calls for student artwork submissions
"Bad Day" (Best in Show, 2021) Artist: Andrew Parker

Lamorinda students will have an opportunity to show their artwork at the Orinda Library as part of the 19th High School Visual Arts Competition and the 15th annual Arts Ambassadors exhibit, hosted by the Lamorinda Arts Council.
The High School Visual Arts Competition offers students a way to display work in 2D, 3D, photography and digital arts. Last year's winners included Andrew Parker's "Bad Day" (Best in Show), Yesenia Del Cid's "Virtual Jail House" (1st place, digital arts), Lillia Hammond's "One-Sided Love" (1st place, photography), Kate Lee's "Division" (1st place, 2D) and Leena Hobson's "Alive" (1st place, 3D). Registration is now open; deadline is at midnight on Feb. 22. Cash awards and merit citations will be given and winners will be featured in an in-person exhibit in the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library during the month of March and an online public exhibit from April through February 2023. For information and registration, visit www.lamorindaarts.org/vac or call (925) 359-4490 with questions. To see all of last year's winners, visit https://lamorindaarts.org/past-winners-archive-vac/.
The 15th Arts Ambassadors In-Person Exhibit at the Orinda Library Art Gallery features K-8 student artwork from Orinda and Moraga schools, which will be displayed during the month of February. Orinda artwork is exhibited Feb. 1-15; Moraga artwork is exhibited Feb. 15-28. Instead of a public reception to award AA ribbons, art educators David Wilson of Orinda and Moose Wesler of Moraga will award the ribbons within the students' classrooms.

  In addition to the student exhibitions, the Lamorinda Arts Council invites you to view Valerie Corvin's virtual exhibit - "Whispers of the Heart" - at www.lamorindaarts.org/online-galleries through Feb. 28. Corvin has added new abstract work to her show, which is held over from January. She said, "I build layers of marks, first bold dark marks, and then colorful shapes that communicate unique shapes in nature." In-person viewings can be arranged by emailing Curator Aniston Breslin at wildergallery@lamorindaarts.org.
