America's ClayFest II


The Tradition continues...The Art League of Lincoln in conjunction with Blue Line Arts will be holding the second annual art show and competition at the beautiful Blue Line Arts in Roseville, CA. This show will be celebrating the rich
history of 25 years of clay competition formerly known as the Feats of Clay that was held at Gladding McBean Clay Manufacturing Company in Lincoln, CA. For 2014, besides the open competition at Blue Line Arts, we will be expanding the show to include a Gladding McBean Retrospective at the newly opened Art League of Lincoln’s Art Center Gallery, and, an International Student Art Show and Competition. Our show has traditionally had entries from all over the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico and Asia.

This year's judge will be artist and collector Candice Groot who earned her MFA in ceramics and sculpture from Texas Tech University, after which she taught at Gustavus Adolphus College. Currently Candice lives and works in Chicago using white-ware, decals, and found objects in her art as well as directing the Foundation.

Vestiges - Marianne Bland


Marianne Bland an emerging and local artist, known for her quaint and serene paintings of city life. Vestiges, by definition, are “a trace or visible sign left by something vanishing or lost.” In Marianne Bland’s latest series, she presents scenes taken throughout neighborhoods in modern-day San Francisco and Sacramento, highlighting store signs, vehicles, and others from times past. There will be over 30 pieces on display, most created in the past two years.

Marianne Bland was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and currently lives and works in Sacramento. She began her art career in 1998 when she started her own mural painting business at the age of 16. Bland then went on to receive her BFA in Painting and Drawing from California College of the Arts. Regarding this exhibit, Bland stated, “This series of paintings examines city elements that serve as markers of our collective memories as well as moments that feel out of place in time. The signs, streets and buildings that bear silent witness to the experiences of everyday people become vessels of nostalgia. These are spaces imbued by the past: reminders of decades of footsteps, echoes of laughter and layers of lives lived here.”
