‘California Creatures’ at the Scotts Valley Library

Newest ‘Art in the Library’ Installation Features Talent of Local Artists & Children
Artist Reception May 24

California Creatures are creeping into the Scotts Valley Library! On April 26 the Library’s ‘Art in the Library’ program revealed its newest installation that celebrates the extreme variety of creatures that live in California. The showing features the work of celebrated local artists, as well as the talents of students from the Santa Cruz Children’s School.

The public is invited to meet the artists on Saturday, May 24, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at a reception at the Scotts Valley Library, 251 Kings Village Rd. in Scotts Valley. Refreshments will be served compliments of Laureen Yungmeyer of State Farm. Music will be provided by Howie Kimel.

Local artists in the spotlight for California Creatures include:

  • Dianne Bollentini
  • John Goldberg
  • Nana Montgomery
  • Micqaela Jones
  • Judy Bingman
  • Linda Lord
  • Jacob Sackin

Additionally, Julia Blyumen will present selected pieces by young artists from the Santa Cruz Children’s School. The arts are a cornerstone of the school’s K-6academic program.

“California has a remarkable diversity of habitats and animal species, and many of us have a very emotional bond with animals and wildlife,” said Valri Peyser, Art in the Library Program Chair. “We invite everyone in the local community to take a look at how our local artists, including budding student artists, celebrate California’s creatures.”
