The Seventh Annual Open Air Art for Open Space Show
“Treasures of Redlands”
Show Dates: April 11-17, 2011
Co-sponsored by Redlands Art Association and the Redlands Conservancy
All Plein Air artists are invited to paint on location at several beautiful, historic building sites chosen this year for their uniqueness: The Asistencia, the Lincoln Shrine, old City Hall, and the Santa Fe Depot. We’ve been very fortunate in obtaining permission to also paint on the grounds of The Burrage Mansion and at Kimberly Crest, and urge artists to take advantage of these “once in a lifetime” opportunities.
Artists are invited to enter the resulting ‘plein air’ artworks for the Show-Within-A-Show at the Redlands Art Association gallery, April 11-17. Take-in for artworks is on Saturday, April 9 from 12-4. The entry fee is $15 for the first entry and $5 for each additional entry, with a maximum of 3 entries per artist. The reception and awards ceremony will be held in conjunction with the Spring floral show reception at the RAA gallery on Saturday, April 16 from 2-4. Elin Pendleton will judge the show for cash prizes: $150 for First Place, $100 for Second, $50 for Third as well as Honorable Mention ribbons.
The show prospectus, with more information, including paint-out dates and times, is available on the RAA website: click here to download. Hard copies will also be available in the RAA gallery.

New Class: Wire Wrapped Bead Ring
Beginner’s Class (4 hours max): Create your own heirloom-quality silver jewelry with no prior experience. Limited to 6 students.
You will leave this class with TWO beautiful wire wrapped rings suitable for wearing out the door or a gift for someone special! Each ring will be made from a pure silver bead crafted into a design of your choice and adorned with sparkling cubic zirconium.
Techniques learned in this class include forming a bead using Silver Art Clay, setting a cubic zirconium, wire wrapping the fired bead into a ring of desired size and finishing/polishing the finished piece. We will also discuss the use of organic matter which burns away during firing as well as firing charts for cubic zirconium and other stones.
$70 members/$75 non-members, price includes ALL materials and tools will be provided
Silver clay jewelry is 99.9% pure silver (“fine silver”).
The clay consists of silver in powder form, with organic binders that burn off during the firing process. Each piece is created in clay, with texture, shape and details formed by the designer. After firing, the piece is hand-burnished (polished) and oxidized/antiqued if desired.

Just a reminder for the 2011 Artist’s Bio’s
I’d like to invite all members, new and old, to consider updating or writing a new artist bio for the book in the West Gallery. If you didn’t rewrite your bio last year or submit one, now is the time to write a new one!
All we need is two sheets of paper:
- 1st sheet: your studio name, contact details, & any other information your prospective buyer would be interested in – a paragraph would be fine. By all means include a small photo.
- 2nd sheet: include up to 3 photo examples of your work with a caption. Please put your name/studio name on this page at the bottom to prevent any mix ups.
Feel free to email the bio’s to me at email@example.com (but not mac documents because I have problems printing these) or drop off the sheets at the RAA in the labeled box above the pigeon holes. If you need any help or further information please email me. Thanks
