Donald’s weekend picks

Besides attending our rescheduled Beehive Birthday Party, of course …

1. MEET MALAQUIAS MONTOYA
The artist is considered one of the founders of the social serigraphy movement in the San Francisco Bay Area in the mid-1960s. Arte Américas honors him in a new exhibition titled “Voice for the Voiceless” featuring silkscreen, charcoal and pastel works addressing the themes of injustice, empowerment and international struggle. Montaya, who grew up in the Valley, will be at Arte 2-5 p.m. Saturday for an artist’s reception and “homecoming celebration.”

2. PICK A CONCERT
It’s a busy concert weekend for local performing arts groups. You can choose between spring concerts by the Fresno Choral Artists, the Fresno Community Concert Band and the Fresno City College Music Department. I write about all three in Friday’s 7 section.

You’ll find out the location of the 10th annual Secret Garden Party, a fundraising event sponsored by the support group for Fresno State’s Arne Nixon Center for the Study of Children’s Literature, when you buy your tickets. The party is 3-5 p.m. Sunday. Deadline to reserve tickets is 5 p.m. Friday. Below: a photo from last year’s party. [Details]

I’m sitting here at the CMAC Studios with my Art exhibit while the open house tours continue. The ribbon cutting ceremony was packed with supporters and media. Now I enjoy welcoming people as they come in for the rest of the day for tours.
