The lovely gardens at Filoli
Joyce Savre was in a show at Filoli in Woodside, California, called Patterns and Abstractions of Nature, A Fine Art Mixed Media Exhibit. Her piece was a triptych titled "Shadow Lines, Ocean Space". This lovely exhibit featured original fine art drawings, paintings, photographs and other two-dimensional art that illuminate the amazing structures of nature in creative ways. The subjects ranged from something living, such as the veins of leaves, to something not living, such as ripples on sand dunes, to a combination, such as the patterns of reeds and the ripples on a pond. The exhibit ran from February 9 - April 11, 2010.
Along with 6 other artists, Joyce Savre was in a March watercolor show at Gallery 9 in Los Altos.

This piece above is Joyce Savre's entry from last year's exhibit. We are happy to announce that Joyce has been invited once again to the 51st Midwestern Invitational Exhibit of Fine Art at the Roarke Art Museum in Moorhead, Minnesota. This year's theme will be "Birthright and Legacy" and is being held June 18 - September 5, 2010.
Joyce's piece, "The Fallen Bird", was one of 70 works out of 600, selected for the prestigious Statewide Drawing and Print Competition, juried by Roberta Loach. This exhibit was held at the Triton Museum in Santa Clara, and ran from December 12, 2009 - March 14, 2010.
Last but definitely not least, Joyce has recently collaborated with the poet, Charlotte Muse. Joyce wrote music for one of Charlotte's poems entitled "Caldeando Song". The sheet music is in Charlotte's new book of poetry called A Story Also Grows, which was inspired by the words of Ascencion Solorsano, the last native speaker of the Amah Mutsun tribe of northern California. This lovely book is printed from hand set Kennerley Oldstyle type on the first cotton/linen handmade rag paper from the Chester Creek paper mill. The book is available for purchase here.
