Filoli announces its final art exhibit of the year, Handcrafted and Through the Lens: Nature Interpreted, July 10 through October 21. This juried, multiple-media exhibit features two dimensional drawings, paintings and photographs inspired by nature. This varied exhibit showcases a broad range of approaches, forms and materials that artists employ to uniquely interpret their world.
The open call for entries was very well received by the art community with a total of 252 entries submitted from 88 artists. From these entries, 46 pieces were selected for the show by jurors, Jan Rindfleisch, former Executive Director of the Euphrat Museum, DeAnza College, Cupertino, and Lucy Cain Sargeant, Art Instructor, San Jose State University, and Former Assistant Art Director, Illustration, at Sunset Magazine. The selected entries from the 41 artists feature a variety of photography, paintings, multiple-media paintings, collage, a mosaic image and even a photograph that is quilted.
The curators for this exhibit are Friends of Filoli Art Committee volunteers, Jerry Barrack of Emerald Hills, Jasmin Flores of South San Francisco, Teresa Silvestri of Belmont, and Mary Stahl of Palo Alto.
