New Beginning | Valentina Cirasola | Author and Designer

New Beginning is the title of the art exhibition I visited last Thursday at its inaugural day. It coincided with the inauguration ceremony for the new Mayor David J. Canepa taking a new post in the City Hall of Daly City in California.
The exhibit “New Beginning” will be open from Jan. 16 through Mar. 31, 2014 featuring twenty-two artists, members of the Peninsula Chapter of Women’s Caucus for Art. Many of the exhibitors are painters and a few others are fabric artists, photographers, sculptors and mixed media artists.

All the creations are vibrant, so different from one another and so characteristic. The furniture pieces are extravagant and colorful showing the strong artist’s personality; the water colors are serene and showing limpid waters; the abstracts painting are… yes, very abstract and pull the viewers into the canvas; the acrylic painted grass has a natural movement; the photographs freeze moments in time; the fabric art is highly expressive and there are even ex-rayed chess pieces transferred on canvas. The whole collection is amazing and it will really put some rhythm in the stark hall of the City Hall office building until March 31, 2014.

As a foreigner I can’t help thinking about what mature but young-at-heart women can do in this country, they are unstoppable! But this is me coming from a different latitude, always making comparisons with my country, where most of the women in their 50s are done with life and do not push themselves to strive for more. It is an inspiration to all, our fantasy has no age, it can only grow better, stronger and colorful. My grandmother Pasqua, to whom I dedicated my first book said: “Life evolves until the last moment”.
With this in mind and the inspiration from the art exhibition, I will make sure my life and the life of people I touch is always a “New Beginning”.

Note: The Women’s Caucus was found in 1972 in connection with the College Art Association, WCA a national organization of multi-disciplines and multicultural artists, museums professional, art historians and educators, with the mission to expand opportunities for women in the arts. Marian Yap www.marianyap.com and Bonnie J. Smith http://bonniesmith.vpweb.com  are the curators for the “New Beginning” art exhibition.

If you are closer to Daly City, please visit the City Hall on the 3rd floor. The art is for sale and the contact information of each artist is next to each art piece. Wishing Mayor David J. Canepa many terms in his post and Ad Majora to all the artists.

      Bonnie, congratulations, I wish you well for tonight show. I didn’t have all the pictures of the New Beginning Art Exhibit, at time visitors were in front of the art piece, or the light shining on some pieces wasn’t that great. I shall be waiting for the photographer to send me some photos then I will post them.
      Thank you for the visit and for your comment.
