Mesmerizing, unique works of art on display at our library by talented local artists
When you drop by the Mission Viejo Library to stock up on your summer reading, be sure to check out the impressive works of art on display by the talented Pam Wagoner, Sharon Jaeger and J.R. Yates.
Pam Wagoner is an advocate for sustainability and reuse education through the arts, a community volunteer, artist and owner of GreenLifeGallery.com. She is passionate about making and promoting works of art that are handmade in the U.S. using recycled, reclaimed, salvaged and repurposed materials. Pam transforms trash into inspirational works of art.
Sharon Jaeger’s “Nature + Feathers = Fabric Art” exhibit demonstrates three different approaches to birds in nature with fibers and fabric.
Two exhibit walls in the library depict different birds in nature using fabric manipulation, painting, traditional and non-traditional stitching and the use of various materials in unusual ways. The pieces on the third wall aim at whimsy and are meant to bring a smile.
J.R. Yates started painting in 2017 at the age of 64.
“Age gives a person a new perspective on life and a keen awareness of the value of each moment,” he said.
With a primary focus on the earth, water and the sky, J.R. strives to create works of art that feature these elements in a unique way that will attract the public’s attention and excite and stimulate the imagination.
“I want you to experience my art and enjoy the way it makes you feel,” he said.
See the artists’ exhibits in the library gallery at 100 Civic Center through July 11.
