Art guild’s May activities include abstract artist, mosaic workshop

Ramona Art Guild members will present two $1,000 checks at its meeting on Wednesday, May 16: one to a local high school graduate and one to the Friends of Ramona Library for that organization’s support of the arts and the community.

Abstract artist Marsha Boston will be featured at the May 16 Ramona Art Guild meeting. Pictured is one of her works, “Wild Bergamo.”

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Ramona Library Community Room, 1275 Main St., and will feature abstract artist Marsha Boston, whose works are influenced by her fascination with botany.

In other news, the guild will host a two-part workshp titled Mosaics with Gwen Pellachia. Part 1 will be on Saturday, May 19, and Part 2 on Saturday, June 2. Both will be in Pellachia’s studio in Ramona from 9:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Pellachia uses vintage broken china dishes to cover the backs of concrete turtles, flower pots, serving trays, and other decorative items. A large turtle can have about 300 china pieces covering the shell. The pieces are bonded with adhesive, grout, and sealant.

The artist earned her art degree from the University of California Santa Barbara. She teaches mosaic classes for beginning and advanced artists at Palomar Collebe.
