J.C. Strote, Membership Coordinator

Strote’s fused glass works involve layering brightly colored glass to form tiles, jewelry and other designs. Her studio is in a barn, where she works next to tractors and farm equipment.

“This is very close to our ideal space,” she said. “The more galleries here, the more Downtown benefits.”

Charlene Martin, Student Liaison

Martin is a photographer of landscapes and agriculture. She currently has digital and lumen photography on display at the art center. She works with students and teachers to curate a wall of youth art each month for the gallery.

“For the students, it’s also a lesson in presentation,” she said. “The art has to be matted and framed to be hung.”

Richard Allen, President

Allen didn’t pick up a paintbrush until he was 55 years old, but now painting is central to his life. While on vacation, he snaps hundreds of landscape photos. He selects his favorites and uses them as the subject for oil paintings.

“I try to think of what I can bring out to give other people an experience in looking at the piece,” he said.

Location

110 W. Pine St. Lodi CA

A nomadic tribe of wandering artists has found a new home, and this time they hope it’s for good. The Lodi Community Art Center celebrated the opening of its new Pine Street gallery last weekend with a string quintet, an open house and a cheerful ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The collective is both a group of art creators and a center where their works can be displayed. All pieces in the gallery are for sale, and the collective takes a 25-percent cut for operating expenses, hosting art classes and offering scholarships.
