Woodbridge Winery showed off its usual assortment of wine and wine barrels, but on Saturday and Sunday, there was also an assortment of candy and all kinds of artwork.
While sipping their wine, visitors enjoyed looking at acrylics, watercolor, pastels, sculpture, graphics, photography — 307 pieces of art altogether. Typical of the previous 51 Lodi Spring Art Shows, participants admired the works of other artists and enjoyed what fellow entrants displayed.
New this year was a lesson of Kusudama, a form of Japanese origami. Suzanne Rawlings of Lockeford taught people how to create the Kusudama during the art show.
One child, Abigail Wright, 6, seemed to be having a good time creating the paper art on Sunday afternoon. Kusudama is known in Japanese as a "healing sphere."
The weekend began with a fundraiser by the Lodi Community Art Center to benefit art classes for the financially struggling Lodi Unified School District, said art center Vice President Patti Wallace.
