Autumn Haunt Winners, Halloween Art Sale, Fall Events


We are pleased to announce the winners of our Autumn Haunt 2021 Virtual Art Challenge! Before we do, we thank everyone who participated, and want to say, the reason to create art should not be to win a prize, it should be for personal satisfaction. If you felt accomplished and satisfied with the work you did, that is all that really matters. Keep creating!


First up, the K-12 CNUSD area entries. We received over two dozen fun, creative, and colorful entries from our local kids this year! Some of our CAA board members took a look at them and agreed the following were especially well done in terms of theme and composition. These kids will receive award ribbons for their efforts. (p.s. if anyone reading this knows the 2nd and 1st place winners, can you ask the parents to contact us, as we did not get their email addresses! Thanks!)



The Adult category was judged by artist John Bagley, Jr. of Upland. Of the 10 entries we received, the following were awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Winners will receive $20, $10, and $5 respectively.



All entries will be posted on our website and shared on Facebook and Instagram soon!



 

Last Saturday was a BIG day for CAA volunteers! We hosted a sugar skull workshop, gave out candy to kids who came to the Civic Center for the City's Halloweekend event, and gave out coloring pages for our "Day of the Dead" coloring contest! One of the participants in the sugar skull workshop even bought Alex Alarcon's "Frankie's Favorite Holiday" pastel painting right off the wall!


 

In honor of the "spooky season", two CAA members are selling prints of their original artwork to benefit our programs and services. Bruce Logan is reducing the price of the glicee prints of his original oil painting "Spooky the Cat" to just $90 -- that's $35 off -- now until Halloween. Please buy here and pick up at the gallery: https://www.coronaartassociation.org/product-page/bruce-logan-original-artwork




And prints of Alex's very timely "Frankie's Favorite Holiday" are going for just $15. Purchase online and pick up at the gallery: https://www.coronaartassociation.org/product-page/alex-alarcon-original-artwork



 

We have a variety of Fall and Halloween (and all occasions!) hand-made art and jewelry in our Gallery Gift Shop! Business hours are 12-4pm, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, excluding most holidays. You can browse before you come in or buy online: https://www.coronaartassociation.org/gallery-shop
