The artists and mediums being presented are Richard Bohn (sculpture), Jorge Burtin (glass), Gil Delinger (pastels), Lani Emanuel (oil painting), Carolyn Johnson (mixed media), Maaria Kader (scratchboard), Eileen McCullough (watercolors), Corinne Miller Schaff (hand-painted silk), Laura Seeley (acrylics), Joshua Serafin (mixed media), Andrew and Rebeca Snider (photography), Stephen Swintek (photography) and Sue Thompson (acrylics).
These exhibitors were recently juried into the Festival of Arts by a panel of six knowledgeable artists and/or art experts which included painter Paul Bond, Creative Director of USC Design Studio Sam Carter, photographer Rick Graves, former Director of Irvine Fine Arts Center Wendy Shields, ceramicist Mike Tauber and Arts Coordinator of the Orange County Department of Education Steve Venz.
“We are very excited to have fourteen of the sixteen new artists joining us for this exhibit,” said Director of Exhibits, Education and Permanent Collections Ron Morrissette. “Their work, along with our longtime exhibitors, will help create one of the most exciting years the Festival has ever seen.”
