Carnegie Opens “Imagining the Real”


The Carnegie Arts Center is presenting “Imagining the Real”, a new exhibition of 56 featured works from artists representing the region.

Named after Pablo Picasso’s inspirational quote, “All that you can imagine is real,” the celebration of creativity will exhibit paintings, sculptures, works on paper, textiles, photographs and mixed media. “Imagining The Real” runs concurrently with the “Picasso: 25 Years of Edition Ceramics” exhibit now on view at the Carnegie.

More than 215 works were entered to participate in the exhibit, including 22 from Turlock. From those the finest 56 were chosen, representing artists from Arnold, Atwater, Escalon, Ceres, Palo Alto, Modesto and San Francisco.

Pieces selected for the exhibition were chosen because they began in the artists' minds, but have the potential to have a profound and real impact on many people.

“We were seeking entries that had a clear start in the imagination of the artist,” said Carnegie Arts Center Curator and Director Rebecca Phillips Abbott. “But it was up to each individual artist to interpret that as he or she saw fit.”

Winners of the competition include Josef Peters of Escalon, who received the Grand Prize for his sculpture “Bare Youth,” 2013. His sculpture seems to defy death in its liveliness, and is composed of steel, a rubber tire, and an I-beam.

Claudia Silva-Doo of Turlock received First Prize in Mixed Media for her intricately patterned “Bamboo Curtain,” 2013.

“Imagining The Real” runs through Feb. 23, 2014. The Carnegie Arts Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday to Sunday. There is a free, public artists' reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday.
Other first prize winners include:

Yvonne Porcella (Arnold), Textiles, “Paris 1866,” 2013
Gioia Fonda (Sacramento), Works on Paper, “Philomena Upon Her Way Beast Irisys,” 2013
Gail C Ritchie (Corralitos), Sculpture, “Paper Chair,” 2011
Morgan Chivers (Texas), Photography, “Central Gravity Vision,” 2013
Mark Adam Webster (North Highlands), Oil & Acrylics, “The Violinist,” 2006

"You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends. Polyester often dries quickly, making it the perfect fabric for intense workouts."
  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
