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.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
