An exhibit of sculptures by the Master Sculptor and Pre-eminent Mentor and Instructor who was as well known for his work with disabled artists as he was for his work as a professional sculptor. In 1980 Rodriguez developed an innovative program under the California Arts Council where blind sculptors were successfully brought into the mainstream of important professional art activities. He was selected to conduct a stone carving workshop at the 12th International Sculpture Conference in Oakland, CA a first at the ISC in addressing the needs of visually impaired artists. He was the subject of a Channel 2 documentary in 1982 in Berkeley, CA of his life and work which was nationally broadcast. He received significant gallery and major television attention in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1970s-1980s, becoming known as “the People’s Artist.” Additionally, he had a big impact on the cultural environment of Woodstock, NY in the 1990s and 2000s.

Bona Marketplace 116 W Standley Street Bona will be hosting Bev Rae. The photographs Bev will be presenting on March 1st will be up and on display through May and represent her latest photographic interest. Taking photographs at night requires knowledge, skill and luck. When everything comes together it can be magical. The photographs in this show are all taken after sunset and before sunrise. The full moon can be used to light the scene naturally. Cloudy nights can add unexpected interest. Moonless nights are for photographing the Milky Way Core. I hope you enjoy the wonders of the night sky and take the time to look up at the stars.
