EAST GALLERY



 

Showing concurrently in the East Gallery is Along the Ohlone-Portola Trail, a show of plein air works created in recognition of the 250th anniversary of the first sighting of the San Francisco Bay by Spanish explorers (a historic event that is celebrated in early November). Along the Ohlone-Portola Trail presents the works of local plein air artists who, between February and April 2019, created artworks at four locations along the path of Portola in Pacifica (Rockaway Beach, Pacifica State Beach at Linda Mar, Shelldance Overlook, and the Sweeney Ridge Discovery Site).

Supervisor Don Horsley, SMC District 3, is a sponsor for this show and will participate in the special event slated to take place on Thursday, July 18, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. This event is free, and the public is invited to come hear the artists share their experiences in a Gallery Walk and Trail Talk. In addition to the artists speaking about their work, we'll hear from Supervisor Horsley and a representative of the SMC Parks Department about the plans for the Ohlone-Portola Heritage Trail.

A second special event will be held on Sunday, July 28, from 2 to 3:30 pm, with Linda Janklow of Peopleologie, who will lead a workshop on Native California Canoes and Rafts. Peopleologie presents programs at schools and libraries throughout the peninsula, with workshops designed to promote cultural literacy, celebrate community, and build connections to the world. You can purchase a workshop ticket for $10 on Eventbrite.com. Following the slide show with artifacts, all taking you to our own seashore, bay lands, hills, and backyards to honor our first peoples, you'll learn about the sustained traditions of making baskets, boats, and baby carriers, all from native plants, and will weave your own toy canoe or raft to try out in your favorite body of water!

Sanchez Art Center is located at 1220 Linda Mar Blvd in Pacifica, about a mile east of Highway 1. Following opening night, the galleries are open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 1–5 pm, and by appointment, through August 11. For more information, email info@SanchezArtCenter.org or call 650.355.1894.
