THE GAME ROOM

Tuesday Nights is the name of our class and The Game Room is where we meet when we are not together.

Got a idea that just can't wait...tell us about it.
You need to hash something out, maybe we can help.
Or maybe you just want to see what everybody else is up to.
Post links, post pictures, post questions or just ask one.


My Philosophy.
I teach through action and immersion. Just keep moving, contemplate later. In art, for me at least, there are times of rest and contemplation, and times of work. Art making is a time for work. It is the time to pull from the mental and make physical. Create a reality, a piece of art. For this the contemplative brain needs to move over, the art critic side isn’t even invited to the party. Learn to ask and answer your own questions on the move. The sooner I can get you making art the better. Get something done and then we have something to talk about.

The Artists Group Tuesday Nights is inviting Ramona’s Art lovers to an Art Exhibition of works based on Chance, Synchronicity, Fortune Cookies and just plan Fun!

“Tuesday Nights” is an Art Workshop for local creative types, facilitated by Artist Helen Wilson. Each Workshop is built around a project idea. The projects end in an exhibition. Mostly this is a way to advance creative skills while socializing with others of their artistic ilk.
At every meeting this spring a new project was introduced working with an aspect of Chance. We built Art inspired by: Fortune Cookies, The I Ching, An Artist Wheel of Fortune (created by member Marsha Cook), Rolling Dice to randomly select pages of a favorite book and work started by other members. But what really happened is that we went away and watched the Synchronicity of these inspirations appear in our own art. Each Artist was given Two 10” x 10” and Fourteen 4” x 4” blank canvases to fill.
The Artists were free to interpret the projects however muses directed, and were free to extend themselves. There was one rule “keep a sense of play.”  The group can be seen on the blog http://tuesdaynights-thegameroom.blogspot.com
The exhibitions artists are Tracy Potter, Lark Burkhart, Deborah Behnke, Helen Petre, Heidi Schlotfeldt, Karen James, Susie Amundson, Ralph Jensen, Cindy Dodson, Antonia Cosentino, Pamela Underwood, Kathe Rothe, Regina Wilson, Diane Conklin, Ann Marie Heaton, Marsha Cook, Candace Wright, Julie Z Weaver, John Gardener, Kathleen Beck and Felicia Hill.
Within this group are Book Artists, Quilters, Collage Artists, Glass Artists, Mosaic Artists, Painters, Mixed Media Artists, Sculptors, Educators, Expressive Art Therapists, Activists, Environmentalists and Jewelry Makers.
Come out to the opening on Tuesday Night May 27th from 6 to 9 pm and see what the Gods of Chance have in store for you. You can buy a scratch off ticket to win a 4” x 4” masterpiece. Proceeds go to buy chairs for the studio (we’re getting tired of carrying our own). We are located at 1140 Main Street, Suite 208, Ramona, CA 92605, upstairs, above McWhorter Jewelers and the Tuna Shack. Lezley Knott at Eleven Forty and her desire to support the Arts in Ramona makes the location possible.   

The exhibition will run through the end of June. Gallery Hours are Noon until Six From Wed May 28th through Sunday June 1st and then by Appointment through the rest of June. Helen Wilson can be reached at studio@helenwilsonartist.com
