The Sacramento County Office of Education is featuring the artistic talent of its employees this month.
The fifth annual Employee Art Show, themed "Celebrating the Past, Awakening the Future," features the artwork of staff from 11 SCOE campuses and sites throughout the county. Nearly 100 guests attended a reception Tuesday to kick off the exhibit, enjoying refreshments and meeting many of the 18 artists featured in this year's show.
Among the 46 pieces of art on display are paintings, photographs, illustrations, poetry, textiles and sculptures. The art show is being held in conjunction with ARTober, a regional celebration of the arts.
The non-juried show is open to the public weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the David P. Meaney Education Center, 10474 Mather Blvd. (near Mather Field), through Oct. 31. Free parking is available.
