Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012 13B ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT Plumas Arts will host an opening reception for the next exhibition at the Capi- tol Arts Gallery Friday, Sept. 28, to add to the "Girls' Night Out" festivities. The show, featuring work by artists Chris Bolton and Micheala Rubalcava, will hang Sept. 28 to Oct. 27. Bolton's "Watershed" is a sculptural exploration of the Spanish Creek Drainage. Rubalcava's work presents images of natural and spiri- tual images created many created with recycled mate- rials. Rubalcava, mother of three and professor of educa- tion at Truckee Meadows Community College, lives in Quincy where she makes art in her kitchen. She became an artist over the last decade when she was required to obtain an art teaching credential while working at Quincy High School during a leave of absence from TMCC. Her inspirations excite and animate her work. She started painting oil sunflow- ers and still paints sunflow- ers when her Quincy garden becomes a jungle each September. Rubalcava also painted a series of mandalas featuring nature in the centerpieces, such as snowflakes and flow- ers, to explore concepts of interbeing, impermanence and emptiness, followed by paper Bodhisattva figurines from shredded office waste. Continuing the recycling theme, Rubalcava worked with chalk on used paper bags, depicting daffodils, tangerines and organic vegetables. For Plumas Arts' October show, Rubalcava moved to circular Asian-inspired med- itations of ecological life. She has made prints, of fish, frogs, lotus, quetzals and chameleons from recy- cled materials. The image of a .chameleon came to her in a dream, rep- resenting flexibility and adaptation along the healing path. Also,featured in this show are recycled prints on dis- carded poster boards from student science fair presen- tations. Rubalcava sewed the cut poster board prints into patchwork quilts, fea- turing gold figurines she saw in the Jade Museum in San JosG Costa Rica. The ancient figurines de- pict whimsical angels and baby animals. Rubalcava used Quincy dirt to paint color on many of the prints for this show.

September 29th 10 - 5pm Prizes Refreshments FUN!! 607 Main Street, Chester 530.258.2600 West End Th t -to host rformance "State of the Art" is a se- ries of humorous monologues based on the question "Why isn't there a definition of art?" The six acts take the audi- ence from the evolutionary origins and criteria that de- fine art, to the social, politi- cal and moral importance of art. Classical guitarist Andrew Ohren, of Quincy, will per- form musical interludes between acts. The show plays Saturday, Sept. 29, at 7 p.m. at the West End Theatre in downtown Quincy. Open to the public, the' event is free, Donations may be made to dramaworks. According to the show's writer, Indian Valley artist George Fluke, "'State of the Art' has been reworked into a wittier and faster-paced show than when it debuted seven years ago." "But more important, I've added the moral ,arguments of political philosophy. If we think of art as a public asset, a political association, and yet can't come to a common definition based on_purpose, 'how are we going to reach understanding of the purpose of government? "I believe arguments about a definition of art can point us in the right direction."
