It’s quite stunning! As well, the WestPark will feature several artists for a diverse collection from the theme “The Music Within.” Music inspires so much creativity, and it certainly shows in this remarkable selection. Once again, we’ll host the Susan Cooley-Gilliom Artist in Residence Teaching program with resident artist, Laura Ross-Paul presented by the Placer Community Foundation. Don’t miss her two workshops featuring instruction and technique in acrylic with tension added elements. Live models help create the tension Laura embodies in her work. This opportunity is offered only once a year, make sure you sign up today to learn something exciting and new! A special thanks to everyone who helps support the art efforts in the region. If you’d like to offer additional support, or consider Blue Line Arts in your planned giving this year, please let us know. Your legacy of arts support is an important part of your community.

2013 Visiting artist lAURa rOSS-pAUL Oct 15th - Nov 5th

ABOUT LAURA Nature and urban life intermingle in the northwest, and our proximity to nature can lead to a utopian viewpoint; I think of it as a state of Northwestopia. My goal is to echo our humanity with the patterns and rhythms of nature; to find that “aha” moment when we are swept away by the beauty around us, in a state of flux, focused, but unable to take it all in.

This event is sponsored by the Susan CooleyGilliom Artist in Residence and Teaching Program at the Placer Community Foundation. To learn more visit www.scgart.org.

WORKSHOP #1 Investigating the Live Figure (Beginning) WHEN: Oct 25, Oct26, and Oct 27, 2013 ity l b TIME: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM aila v A ot p d S e t Member Price: $300 our Y Limi e Non-Member Price: $330 Reserv ay Tod

Using a variety of mediums, students will practice their drawing skills with a nude model as their subject. Various drawing studies will be covered with the goal of creating a drawing style that incorporates line, value and color, which can be practiced and refined into an “empty” drawing book that each student will create during the first class. Day One will cover how to approach the figure through gestures. Emphasis will placed be on line, movement and color theory. Various static poses, objects and movements will be explored. Day Two continues the drawing studies into subject matter moving into other objects: a clear glass of water with an object inside. Diving into the basics of seeing the 3-D world and replicating it in 2-D form. Day Three will be working with our empty books and rolling pens. Students will use different materials to experiment. Encouraged to emphasize their own approach, students will finish the workshop with a review explaining their skills and how they will incorporate them in their creative work.

The goal of this workshop is to enforce the basics of figure drawing and painting using proportion, figure/ ground relationships, color theory and the exploration of combining materials. Day One includes gesture drawings with short poses that increase in length. Simple figure/ground relationships will begin with spatial relationships to the paper’s edge, value gestures in black and white, overlapping/contrasting color and finally, incorporating color. Day Two will begin with a focus on the figure in specific portions (face, hand and feet) and finally a longer clothed pose emphasizing compositional flow. Day Three includes a focus on combining materials that reflect transparency and opacity. A specific demonstration on overlapping wet materials over dry for a unique effect will encourage experimentation. A review and peer critique will be scheduled for the last half of the day.

“We know it’s art, but is it any good?” Some people tell me I should stop ranting about politics, and all the shenanigans that go on in the art world! That if I paint more I would get better!?... True, but get better at what? The more I look around at the current art scene, the more I see and read, I see a growing disconnect from the general public... What I see is a departure into a form of esoteric patronizing behavior from the top of the art food chain. Somehow the art has lost that innate beauty and rhythm, only to be replaced by an anarchic outpouring of emotion, mixed with misconceptions, like dark cerebral meanderings of lost souls, looking for that special meaning! 14 • Blue Line Arts Magazine • bluelinearts.org

Couple that with PR and classic misdirection, and you land in the center of a great explosion. One thing is for sure, one has to be good because that alone has great impact, but one’s own message, [whether simple or complex] is even greater in value, that is what the viewer will remember I’m guessing! This viewer’s mind will follow yours and create his/hers own universe and meaning. That’s what I call good art, like a time capsule, the image is physical, frozen in time, but it completely re-creates itself when viewed in a new unit of time.


Like a window into some moment of pleasure that needs to be experienced again and again, but different and fresh in some way every time.

Some art today will stand the test of time, some will just make money and be soon forgotten. As artists we make the choices in the end, “Who do we believe and trust?” Ourselves of course! A buddy of mine from way back, a very successful writer, Neil Gaiman told me to be good at what I do and have fun, he said the old paradigm, the model, or mantra has gone, the old ways of doing business in the arts are over, be prepared for the new digital age of distributing art! Like a modern-day Pre-Raphaelite, I look for an escape from modern-day psychological claptrap that pervades art today… Lots of PR, lots of sterile emotion, little aesthetics, and loads and loads of hot air... Sigh. More later…Zoran Peshich.

“Starry Starry Night Review” An evening atop Blue Line’s three-story parking structure could not have been more pleasant. The asphalt was transformed into an open-air bistro atmosphere with an incredible view of downtown Roseville. As the sun set and the stage lights rose, everyone in attendance was treated to the exhilarating performance paintings of Sacramento’s own David Garibaldi. Even if, somehow, giant technicolor portraits of iconic musicians and famous personalities are not your raison d’être, it’s impossible to stay jaded as an upside-down Einstein comes to fruition over the course of just a few short songs. 22 • Blue Line Arts Magazine • bluelinearts.org

The two-fisted, rhythm infused performance is something entirely different when seen in person rather than on America’s Got Talent, and it all went to provide scholarships for the youth of the North Roseville REC Center. An excellent event all around. Other highlights include seeing folks in their best evening duds light up the night with electronic LED hats and sparkly bracelets from the Illumination and Hydration Station set up by Cooper Oates Air Conditioning. Great food from Roseville ensured that people happy while the City of Roseville Firefighters kept everyone’s glasses full. If you were lucky enough to get the best bottle from the random Wine Wall, I’m sure you went home smiling.


But, what I will most remember about that evening is the auction: CEO Julie Hirota and Ed Goldman from the Sacramento Business Journal kept things light with clever banter as generous audience members shouted bids for Garibaldi’s paintings. When the artist took the mic again to answer a question about his Jimi Hendrix painting, you could tell he really cared about his work, and is dedicated to making a difference through performances. Events at Blue Line are a big part of what makes it more than just another gallery. If you missed Starry Starry Night, make sure you buy a ticket to the next big bash at Blue Line Arts. These events are always enriching, and tremendous fun for everyone involved. -Mikko Lautamo

David Burgess comes to roseville

Friday Nov. 1 Doors Open 6:30 PM NOn-Member $15 per person NOn-Member $30 Per couple click here to sample his music

24 • Blue Line Arts Magazine • bluelinearts.org


BIO Praised by musicians and critics worldwide, David Burgess is recognized as one of today’s outstanding guitarists. His international appearances as a soloist and chamber musician have taken him to concert halls throughout North and South America, Europe and the Far East. First prize winner in the Andrés Segovia Fellowship Competition in New York City, he has also won top honors in the Ponce International Competition in Mexico City, the Guitar ‘81 Competition in Toronto and the 31st International Music Competition in Munich. Mr. Burgess began studying guitar at the Estudio de Arte Guitarrístico in Mexico City with the renowned Argentine guitarist Manuel López Ramos. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in music at the University of Washington, and later earned a Diploma di Merito, while on full scholarship at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy where he studied with Oscar Ghiglia. From 1984-1987 he periodically received classes from the great Spanish maestro, Andrés Segovia. Through his extensive travels in both Spain and Latin America, Mr. Burgess has explored traditional guitar styles, along with many popular and folkloric types of music. He has acquired one of the largest collections of Latin American guitar music in the U.S., from which he often draws interesting and unusual works for his programs.

Celia Linde Performance Blue Line Arts and the Review Sacramento Guitar Society teamed up to bring Celia Linde to the gallery on Friday 13th. In what proved to be an auspicious start to the Music Series at Blue Line, Linde’s raw virtuosity paired well with the art on offer.

mosque, of lost ice cream and music sheets that drifted on the wind to join the ‘Highway to the Pacific’.

I often found myself contemplating the myriad lines, swirls, and dots of Brenda Louie’s ‘The Rivers United Series’ while listening to the sometimes frantic, sometimes lilting pace of Linde’s guitar.

The playfulness of her stories and the soulfulness of her music made me think of the contrast between Lee Kavaljian’s quirky “spirit houses” and Brenda Louie’s monumental paintings the key advantage of the art gallery as a music space is this kind of seamless blending of the arts.

When she stood to speak and introduce the next segment, Linde told delightful stories of an absent-minded musician almost forgetting his duty to call worshipers to prayer in a remote mountain

It felt as if a concert were going on throughout the gallery where two members of a trio were giving a silent, but nonetheless palpable performance. Of course, the space was not without its disadvantages.

26 • Blue Line Arts Magazine • bluelinearts.org


The stage was set up for an intimate performance, offset in a corner; it seemed like more than twice as many people as expected showed up, driving the late arrivals to the back of the allotted space. There were some acoustical difficulties: it was hard to hear from the back rows. I suspect this was just a case of the event staff experimenting with the space and trying to find the best setup for music at Blue Line. All the same, if you are interested in hearing serious guitar and you missed Celia Linde in September, I suggest you get a front row seat for David Burgess on November 1st. -Mikko Lautamo
