BURLINGAME - Art in the Park 38th Annual Event. Among this year’s artists and craftspeople participating in the 38th Annual Art in the Park Festival is Marsha Anderson of Martinez who makes vibrant, hand-painted decorative plates. Marsha starts the process by painting an original watercolor, which is then used as a template for decoupage on the back of a plate. After each plate is hand-painted, Marsha seals the design with layers of enamel. Since the front of the plate is glass, it may be used for food. With a signature checkerboard pattern around the rim of her plates, Marsha’s designs include a wide range of flowers, fruits, vegetables, cocktails, holiday themes and much more. She is always creating new pieces so that her clientele can continue to add to their collection.

With the encouragement of a close friend and accomplished fine artist, San Mateo photographer Roger Bauchspies began capturing images to display what he sees in nature through his patient ability to find moments of interest in even the most common of occurrences within scenes easily overlooked. He draws much of his inspiration from the remote hillsides and wetlands of rural California. “All of my images are real scenes from remote locations of scenery or creatures that rarely encounter humans,” said Roger. “My goal of being an unobtrusive observer has resulted in extraordinary experiences such as rattlesnakes and ground squirrels passing over my outstretched legs as I attempt to get closer to my subjects.”

Award-winning artist and San Jose resident Geri Comstock truly understands women who enjoy being creative with their jewelry. Several of her pieces are made so customers can dress them up, dress them down, and add or remove jewelry parts. Her new line, “The Divine Feminine Series,” is composed of large fabricated neckpieces that incorporate two or more stylized V's. “The V is the ancient symbol for the sacred feminine,” says Geri. “I believe there's a bit of the sacred feminine in every woman. These pieces are designed to allow women to express this connection between themselves and the sacred feminine.”

The Burlingame Art Society will also have a presence at this year’s event. Founded in 1957, the organization’s membership includes artists from throughout the Bay Area whose work is often exhibited at local banks, offices, hospitals, libraries, restaurants, galleries and gift shops. Fourteen of the group’s members will be displaying their work within a large booth at the show.
