Erin is viewing a painting by my niece Ginny, sister of Janet who visited last Friday. Ginny’s painting was one of 75 selected out of 1300 entered for the annual Crocker-Kingsley Art Competition which is being exhibited at the Blue Line Arts Gallery in Roseville. Previous to 2012 the exhibit was at the Crocker Art Gallery in Sacramento.
The collection was curated by Greg Kondos, a well known Sacramento artist who used to teach at Sacramento City College. Some of his prints are also on display.
Ginny took up painting about 3 years go, and continues a tradition of women artists in Ralph’s (her father’s) family.
We went to lunch nearby at Slice of Goodness, a Mom and Pop cafe noted for its pies.
