14B Wednesday, May 21, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter County artists featured at Plumas Arts Gallery Plumas Arts is proud to present the artwork of talented Plumas County artists Micaela Rubalcava and Julie Hatzell with an opening reception Friday, J.une 6, at the Plumas Arts Gallery, 525 Main St. in Quincy from 5 to 7 p.m. Rubalcava and Hatzell have come together to show viewers the joy of art journaling. Art journaling is a global movement the combines visual representations with words to reflect on daffy life and the healing path. It involves multi-media collage, drawing and doodling, painting, prose, poetry, lists and descriptive details in journal books and pages. Art journaling offers a fresh and freeing creative approach to healing, opening up, problem solving and the connectivity of concepts with intentions, color, line and imagery. Rubalcava, a 17-year Plumas'County resident, is a mother of three sons and a full-time professor of education at Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nevada. She integrates art across her curriculum at college, including art journaling this semester, finding that her students benefit from the unfolding process of art journaling. Rubalcava says, "Art journaling lightens up artist methods with wet-on-wet painting, dripping, layering, rough sketching, tearing, ripping, gluing and feeling one's way into art so that the process becomes the centerpiece, rather than a planned finished product of Professor Micaela Rubalcava includes art journaling with her students at .Truckee Meadows Community College. Rubalcava's work will also be on display at Plumas Arts. technique." This series, which continues up to the minute, portrays an evolution that reflects the paradox of shapeshifting and concept boundaries, along with the inevitable release of the healing path. Hatzell didn't know she had it in her. "I knew I was 'creative,' it came out in food and some interior design, but I would never in a million years have called myself an 'artist.'" But when faced with what Brene Brown laughingly calls a breakdown/spiritual awakening, Hatzell discovered a form of art that she fell in love with. Brene Brown, author of "Gifts of Imperfection," offered a course online based on her book using art journaling and Hatzell took the course because, she said, Brene Brown had been so instrumental in her healing process and she trusted her. "Using art to heal and learn about myself has been one of the greatest gifts. I use a lot of humor in my pages, which reminds me to lighten up. I can't really explain why this has been so healing. Maybe it's because I use more of my senses: visual, touch, the smell of paint, it uses more parts of my brain and it becomes more solid." There are many ways to keep an art journal. Some people use it strictly for art. Some use it to keep track of self-awareness or lessons or quotes that are especially dear to them. Some use it to document their life: as a visual diary. Julie Hatzell uses art journaling as a kind of healing process. Examples of her work will be available to view at the Plumas Arts Gallery in Quincy. Photos courtesy Plumas Arts Hatzell is excited to share her personal form of art journaling in the hopes that she can spread the message to people.that art can be a very accessible way to heal or express feelings when you are struggling to find your way. With the same intention, she also holds mixed media art journaling classes twice a month at the Alley Cat Caf6. For more information she can be reached at 283-0902.
