This Saturday

The San Diego Mesa College Museum Studies class presents:

Imaginarium: A Voyage into Creativity: Has the creative process ever been fully understood? Throughout history, artists have used creativity and imagination to convey their ideas in every possible medium imaginable. This exhibit showcases an eclectic group of five San Diego artists and reveals how they create their work. Come view rarely seen sketches, objects of inspiration, and other forms of non-traditional methods and materials used in the art making process.

During the opening reception, Katherine Brannock will literally ‘bring to life’ anamorphic pen and ink drawings with a feminist theme. Bret Daniel investigates formal relationships within linear compositions that are gracefully framed by molded luminous neon strokes. With a taste for satire, May-Ling Martinez engineers mechanically poetic sculptures. Wendell Kling presents a playful fusion of sound and lights in a magical interactive electronic sculpture and Cel├źne Petrulak paints nostalgic and soulful Pop Surrealist portraits.

The public is invited to join in a conversation on Imaginarium: Voyage into Creativity during the opening and closing receptions. The opening reception will feature a conversation with the artists, ‘live’ art performance and music. The closing reception will include live music and art demonstrations by the San Diego Art Department staff.
