  1. Exhibit: Chinese Brush Paintings by Janny Xiaoqin Huang

    May 2, 2019 - June 27, 2019 @ Art Gallery, 1st Floor

    A native of Nanjing, China, Janny Huang graduated from the Jiangsu Academy of Traditional Chinese Painting in 1982 and has been working as a professional painter and teacher since then. Her artwork focuses primarily on subjects from nature in the traditional category of “bird and flower painting,” which also includes fish and insects. Through the simple means of color and ink, she strives to capture the tranquility that nature offers us, to evoke a sense of effortlessness, peace and harmony with the natural world. She pairs much of her work with calligraphed poems and sayings. Huang has exhibited her work both in California and internationally. ** Art Gallery, 1st Floor **

  2. Exhibit: Sculpture by Eric Saint Georges

    May 7, 2019 - June 26, 2019 @ Display Case, 2nd Floor

    Eric Saint Georges was born in Paris, France, and moved to the U.S. in 1994. A workshop with the sculptor Petrus in 1978 triggered his passion for sculpture, but he pursued a career in electrical engineering for 35 years before deciding to devote himself to art full-time. His main focus is on figurative sculpture and drawing. He creates most of his sculptures in clay, either from life or from life drawings, then casts them in bronze. He now spends time between his studio in Los Gatos, CA, various life drawing sessions in the Bay Area, the West Valley College foundry, and teaching life drawing and sculpture. ** Display Case, 2nd Floor **

    June 6, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

    Join other writers in a supportive and social group for writers of all kinds every Thursday evening. Whether you write for personal, professional or other reasons, come prepared to work. This is not a critique or sharing group, but you are welcome to discuss your work during check-in time between 6:30pm - 7pm Writing is solitary, and this meeting is a chance to connect, and sometimes commiserate with other writers. Come late and leave early if you need to, and bring a charged laptop as outlets are limited. The meeting room varies. Melanie Shook and Korie Pelka of the California Writers Club-SF Peninsula Branch co-host these weekly meetings. Meeting rooms will vary so please email Cynthia McCarthy at cmccarthy@cityofsanmateo.org for notifications and updates.
