Who is excited for Pastimes’ second Virtual Student Art Showcase on Kunstmatrix Gallery?
With such a successful Inaugural Winter Student Showcase back in February 2021, we were thrilled to host a Summer Art Show!
On display this time are works in Oils, Acrylics, Watercolor, Oil Pastel, Chalk Pastel, Gray Colored Pencil, Pen & Ink, and Graphite by 23 students ages 8 – adult. Stunning drawing and paintings of people & animal portraits, sill life, florals, and architecture are mounted on virtual walls inside a chic warehouse-style gallery. Linda selected the gallery room design along with the jazzy music: Sweetie Cakes by Count Basie and his orchestra.
Please enjoy viewing the students’ artwork, below.
Kids: Alex V. • Michelle B. • Victor H.
Teens: Anahit S • Andrés Luis M. • Ariel S. • Erika B. • Jazmine L.
Adults: Alex T. • David F. • Debra F. • Estela L. • Gayle W. • Helen M. • Julie M. • Katherine L. • Luda S. • Melise G. • Nihal D. • Rachel A. • Stonsa A. • Sumeet V. • Xi W.
A Virtual Gallery Opening Party kicked off the show via Zoom on Sunday, July 18th from 5 PM – 6 PM (PST). Students from California and New York joined in to celebrate their artistic accomplishments. I enjoyed Zooming in from North Carolina!
It was such a pleasure to see many of the students together on Zoom, complimenting and admiring each other’s artwork. Below are screen shots from the Gallery Opening Party. Enjoy!
