Coker Family Gallery OFF Center: An Annual International Ceramic Competition

Ceramic art’s rich and diverse history is experiencing a moment in contemporary culture. Suddenly clay seems to be everywhere… artists are pushing the material into new forms and expressions in the contemporary art-world… community classes and studios filling with enthusiastic students, dedicated practitioners refreshing traditional techniques through evolutionary methods… enthusiasts are drawn to the experience of something real and transformative as a pathway to a more fulfilled interior life.

Art At Work

Connecting Businesses with the Arts--Blue Line Arts runs the Art at Work program to create more display opportunities for local artists to show their work outside of the gallery.  Each Art at Work location is a Royal Blue Member which provides their local business with new art displays, among other benefits.  This program is designed to showcase works of art in order to support and promote emerging artists in the local and regional area, providing an enhanced aesthetic environment to the Roseville and Sacramento communities. 

Art displays rotate quarterly at each location listed below.

Artist's Statement

My style of creating artwork is painting from the subconscious. There are no carefully planned sketches, no grids, and no paint brushes. It’s just me and my paint with no expectations of anything but painting. I use my hands to apply the paint directly onto my canvas, no rules, just whatever feels right. The key for me is to let go of the conscious world around me, and just paint, allowing my hands to take the lead. Eventually, the lines, drips, and shapes reveal themselves, and a picture begins to emerge, it’s like day dreaming on a canvas.

CLARA Victoria Hamlin

Where a person begins and end up in life is coincidental, accidental; a matter of luck more than intention.

In art at this time, there is a huge selection of possibilities to choose from. My media of choice is oil and graphite (and whatever else, often charcoal) on Arches oil paper. I use collage as well.

I am grateful for what I learned from my day jobs and all life experiences. In art and in life, accident and choice coincide to produce art and an artist.

The newest, most profound art “issue” is content. The artist informs content. Content informs art choices. Painting people who interest me is more important than solving technical challenges, but interesting people can bring interesting technical challenges.

Less is usually more. I put in the pieces that express what I’m after and leave the rest out. This means I can draw, paint, scribble, use any material, erase, make things clear or unclear, finished or not- the decision is mine alone, just because I am or am not attracted to a line or a smudge or a nose.

Joy Joy Joy!! “Life, man, is a gas.”- Lou Rawls

Evergreen Age is Beautiful

"We are living longer and attitudes about aging are starting to change. Life expectancy has improved dramatically over the past 20 years. In fact not only are we living longer, but our senior population is more productive in retirement. Older adults are, and can be blessing, not only to their families, but to their communities as well. Every line and wrinkle comes with a myriad of life experiences and tells a story about the road we have traveled and the world in which we live." - Eskaton

In an effort to raise awareness as to the beauty of aging and appreciation for the elders in our community, Eskaton--a nonprofit senior care provider offering innovative housing, healthcare and social services--held a photo contest (in November 2018) for professionals and amateurs alike to capture inspirational moments that 'help shape the way we think about the beauty aging through uplifting images.'

3rd Saturday Art Reception open to the public on March 16th from 2-4pm

316 Vernon Street Aaron Lee



The Large works are inspired by lust for power and "Pop Consumerism.” I hope the viewer feels danger, and sensuality, so the viewer can have a relationship with the painting. Rose and blue colors represent precision, luxury, and tension to create a style of sensuality. Oil paint represents the eternal nature of artistic ideas.

The small works are inspired by the sculpture of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. I hope the viewers will think about the fragility of life and also the power of color and creativity. Art and culture help to bring joy. The style is referring to a reflection of great master craftsmanship and a focus on modern design. The acrylic represents the cool and sad emotions of our modern world stage, and represents the commercial and plastic structures of our modern time space.
All these works have hidden images and represents the illusion of depth. I hope the viewers will think about the textures of life and also the power of color and creativity. Art and culture help to bring joy and hope to a dying and corrupted planet. The style is referring to a reflection of great master craftsmanship and a focus on modern design.
I am thankful for Blue Line Arts for working with me and supporting my vision and sharing it with the world.
I am building a community to discover freedom through art and design. Together we will learn about financial freedom, we will explore freedom of mind, and we will create together to spread freedom through the vehicle of art, design, and music.
