Calendar
08/25/2016 - The Art of Japanese Saori Weaving Exhibit
Sophie's Gallery presents Constructs: The Art of Saori Weaving at the Japanese Friendship Garden Society of San Diego.

Constructs features hand-woven clothing, accessories, woven wall hangings and banners along with a collection of mosaic and fused glass art made by the artists of Sophie's Gallery, the off-campus art program of St. Madeleine Sophie's Center (SMSC). A public reception for the exhibit will be held on August 25, 2016 from 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM at the Japanese Friendship Garden Society of San Diego in Balboa Park.

The Saori method of weaving is based on the philosophy of freestyle weaving for everyone and emphasizes that there are no mistakes in art. Sophie's weaving program began in 2010 when a Saori loom was purchased from the son of the Saori founder, Kenzo Jo, at the International Conference on Arts & Disabilities held in Washington DC. The Saori loom includes adaptive equipment for hands-free and foot-free weaving as well as height adjustability for wheelchairs, making it a perfect fit for St. Madeleine's students.

Admission/Cost: $5

08/28/2016 - Sea Chantey Festival
For centuries sailors honed their shipboard skills to the cadence of songs recounting the adventure, tragedy, and romance of life at sea. These "sea chanteys" and the sailors' life they describe come to life aboard the Star of India as performed by local and national artists. The Star of India sail crew will demonstrate shipboard skills traditionally accompanied by sea chanteys, and visitors will have a chance to join in and raise the sails of the historic ship.

07/18/2016 - Exhibition: DeLIMITations
In 2014, artists Marcos Ramírez ERRE and David Taylor set out to trace the historical 1821 border between Mexico and the western territories of the United States. That border stretched from the present-day Oregon/California state line to the Gulf of Mexico just west of Louisiana, and previously existed only as a reference on historic maps and treaty documents because it had never been surveyed or physically marked. For DeLIMITations, ERRE and Taylor asked the question, "what would Mexico and the United States look like if that boundary had been fully realized?" ERRE and Taylor, accompanied by filmmaker José Inerzia, who helped document the process, drove a van outfitted to serve as a mobile command center, fabrication space, and camper along the 1821 border. The artists marked the boundary by installing 47 sheet metal markers that mimic the stone and iron obelisks that delineate the current international border between the United States and Mexico.

DeLIMITations
: A Survey of the 1821 United States-Mexico Border is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and made possible by proceeds from the 2016 Biennial Art Auction. Institutional support of MCASD is provided by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Fund.

07/18/2016 - Exhibition: Papel Chicano Dos
Papel Chicano Dos: Works on Paper from the Collection of Cheech Marin presents artworks by Chicano artists including established figures such as Carlos Almaraz, John Valadez, and Margaret Garcia, as well as younger emerging artists such as Wenceslao Quiroz and Carlos Donjuan, whose work demonstrates a range of techniques from watercolor and aquatint to pastel and mixed media.

The visual arts were integral to the Chicano movement of the mid-1960s and continue to be a powerful tool for Mexican-American and Chicano communities to voice the issues that affect them today. The works' emotive images draw on myriad sources, such as pre-Hispanic symbols, post-revolutionary nationalistic Mexican motifs, and contemporary urban culture. Together these pieces evince a special focus on activism—highlighting how Chicano artists provide access to the arts by creating posters, flyers, printed statements, and newsletters with elaborate aesthetic compositions and designs.

By the late 1970s and early 1980s, Chicano artists were creating iconic images that transcended their activist function and defined the iconography of a movement.

Papel Chicano Dos: Works on Paper from the Collection of Cheech Marin is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, with generous lead underwriting support from Paul and Geneviève Jacobs. Additional support has been provided by proceeds from the 2016 Biennial Art Auction. Institutional support of MCASD is provided by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Fund.

05/05/2016 - Chinese Brush Painting Exhibition
The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum is spreading multiculturalism through art this coming May! "Embracing a Noble Tradition" is filled with artwork of students and teachers from the Chinese Brush Painting Society of San Diego. All of these students and teachers come from various ethnic backgrounds, but have come together for a collective purpose: to capture the spirit and aesthetics of the Chinese painting tradition.

Chinese brush painting is a highly valued ink and watercolor art form that originated in ancient China and has been preserved in its traditional form throughout history. The Chinese Brush Painting Society of San Diego was founded over three decades ago in 1980. The Society currently has over 30 active members, including accomplished artists, who meet to share ideas on all aspects of Chinese brush painting and host workshops on different styles of traditional and contemporary Chinese brush painting and calligraphy. These artists bridge the gap between East and West by their conscious effort to engage with and transform this ancient Chinese art form.
