In Gallery 2: A Tribute to Janice Porter

The celebration of her life will take place Friday May 16 from 5-8 pm.

We feel honored that the family of Janice Porter has asked us to host a tribute to her as an artist and teacher on Friday, May 16, 5-8 pm.  Porter, who died September 23, 2012, had a powerful impact on her students at CSUC, and Butte and Shasta Community Colleges. She was very active in our local art community and displayed her art at the CSUC University Art Gallery, 1078 Gallery and the Chico Art Center.  She was also a graphic designer and published 29 illustrated children’s books. Some of the original illustrations will be present at the exhibit and available for sale along with a sampling of the remainder of her art works. A portion of the proceeds from the sale will benefit the Reta Rickmers’ Pleasant Valley student art program.

Winner of the “Be Our Guest 2014″ competition, artist Carlos Loarca came to visit the gallery Saturday March 22 to make plans for the upcoming exhibition.  We were pleased that he consented to be interviewed.  Below is a short clip from the interview.  This clip is in regards to his motivation as an artist.
