A New Outlook

Trips to Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Marin County and Northern Mexico are the impetus for Marguerite Schaffron’s new photography and mixed media work in an exhibit called "Outlook" at Asylum Gallery inside HQ: Headquarters for the Arts, 1719 25th St., Sacramento (behind the gray fence at 25th & R Sts.) from June 28th to August 17th. There will be Saturday evening receptions from 6 to 9 pm for this show on July 12th and August 9th. Regular gallery hours will be 1 to 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays or by appointment.

Schaffron has been showing her photographs, acrylic and mixed media paintings, ceramic pieces and winning awards since 1998 in the Sacramento region. It was in 2000 that she received an honorable mention in photography at the California State Fair. With a BA in studio art from UCD in 2001, Schaffron also taught in the university’s ArtsBridge program, which places artists in Yolo County schools. She was the featured photographer at the Yolo County Fair in 2002 and received the honor of being named photographer of the year.
