AMOCA Tour Scheduled

We’re organizing a fun art experience for RAA members and supporters touring the American Museum of Ceramic Art and Pomona’s 2nd Saturday Art Walk.  Admission is free, but dinner is not included.

Meet us at the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) on September 13th at 3:00 pm for an educational docent tour and the opening reception of their newest exhibits.  In the main gallery will be the work of Amado Pena and Rich Lopez  and In the Vault will be the work of Rebekah Bogard.  While at the museum, we’ll also take part in AMOCA’s celebration of Harrison Macintosh.  AMOCA admission, docent tour and parking are free for our group.

Afterwards, we’ll walk a few blocks to the heart of Pomona’s Art District to visit the galleries open for 2nd Saturday Art Walk.   Please RSVP to gallery@redlandsartassociation.org or by calling the gallery (909-792-8435) so we can get an accurate count for the docent tour.

AMOCA is located at 399 N. Garey Ave, Pomona, CA.  We encourage carpooling from the gallery.

New Vertical Garden in the RAA Patio

The Vertical Garden is installed!  Be sure to check out the purple wall now that it is complete.  A member of RAA, Carol Pancner contributed the hardware and plants as well as her expertise as a master gardener.

All the plants are succulents planted in the rain gutters.  Francis Wiley and Larry Harvill mounted the gutters on the wall.  Carol will help us maintain the plants and teach us how to care for them.  Susan LaDean Evans has volunteered to look after them as Carol recommends.  The plants are drought tolerant, frost hardy and beautiful.

We hope they like their new home.  How does everyone like RAA’s new look???
