June 2019 Featured Artist: Renée Rondon - Acrylic, Oils

Reception: June 7 | 6 PM - 8:30 PM

Renée is a 4th generation (of 5) Californian. She moved to Calaveras County 12 years ago. Her pastimes include camping, hiking and gardening. Her passion is painting.

Most of her experience is in oils, but she also enjoys using acrylic, watercolor, and pastel. She is mostly self-taught, but has gained experience and knowledge from many respected instructors including Ed Garcia, VaLoyce Jensen, Gereon Rios, Gill Delinger, George Durkee, Diana Boyd, Judy Cain, Peggi Kroll-Roberts, Jim Toenjes, and Heinie Hartwig.

Renée enjoys the challenge of developing her paintings into a story that will touch someone’s heart, or remind them of something special that is part of their life. Each painting is developed from a personal photo, sketch, travel, plein air painting, and even from her own backyard.

Her art has won several awards, and her paintings have been in various galleries and venues including the Aloft Gallery, Calaveras Arts Council in San Andreas, Ironstone Winery, Lodi Community Art Center, Mistlin Gallery, Delicato Winery and Umpqua Bank.

If you would like to contact Renée, please call 209.772.0287, or email her at paintinglady2012@gmail.com.


August 2019 - George Dillon - Acrylics | Website | Email: george.dillon1@comcast.net

Reception: August 2 | 6 PM - 8:30 PM

Valley Springs Artist to be Featured at Lodi Community Art Center Through August 

George Dillon, who has been painting professionally for the past 20 years, strives to get each observer to have an emotional response of some type to his creations.  His style is most often surreal or modern and was influenced by Picasso Matisse, and Georges Braque as well as his first encounters with African art and travel.  His imagination and whimsy have all been inspiration to him.  Viewers’ sensibilities will be challenged by sometimes humorous and/or penetrating looks at culture and its surroundings.  Many of his titles will stir the observer to examine their own awareness of what they think is being conveyed.

Currently Gorge is a member of the Calaveras Arts Council, the Amador County Artists Association and the Lodi Council of Arts. His works have been on display in several venues in the Bay Area, Sacrament, as well as the California foothills and the Lodi Community Art Center.

Through the month of August, George’s current works will be featured at the Lodi Community Art Center located at 110 W. Pine Street, Lodi.

A free reception, open to the public, is being held on Friday, August 2nd from 6 pm -8:30 pm.   For further information call (209) 333-3885.
