Artist Talks at the ArtFirst! Holiday Show

ArtFirst! Holiday Show artist talks by kayla garelick and Heidi Rand.

Come to our artists’ talks this week at the ArtFirst! Holiday Art Show. I introduced you to daydreaming artist kayla garelick in this post.  Many people wonder how kayla achieves such amazing abstract effects with her photographs.

Here's your chance to find out! kayla will present a one hour hands-on demonstration and talk on "Through a lens darkly; an artist's view of photography." Start times are 3 pm and 5 pm on both Wednesday & Thursday November 28 & 29. See through kayla's amazing lenses and into the depths of a tiny crystal. kayla writes: "Some spiritualists say you can see your soul when you gaze into the depths of a natural crystal! Perhaps you'll see your destiny, find your soulmate, or encounter past lives. Or perhaps not, but you will see the beginning of my creative process!"

On Friday November 30th from 4 pm to 5 pm, I'll speak about selling artwork and crafts online. I'll share tips and answer your questions about the various venues available to sell online, engaging in social media to promote your arts and crafts, and more.

And on Sunday December 2nd, starting at 1 pm and running throughout the day, you can watch my slideshow “Gardening For Wildlife”, which is a collection of my original nature photographs of local butterflies, birds and other wildlife, and gives examples of the different kinds of plants you can use to attract and nurture them.Join us at the Village Shops & Galleries, 10330 San Pablo Ave., El Cerrito, between Stockton and Eureka Streets. The ArtFirst! Holiday Show and Sale will run from Wednesday Nov. 28 through Sunday December 2nd, from noon to 6 pm. The Gallery is wheelchair accessible, and there is plenty of free parking. It is about a half mile from the El Cerrito Plaza BART station.
