Help Needed: Identify Link Artists!

Link Project - Help us with artists names
Help us identify the artists whose work is shown here, but who are not credited.

Hello MBMAG Members!

We need help crediting artists who made some of the links in our MBMAG Link Project. We have been tasked with labeling this work for the August opening of Surf, Sand, Silversmiths show at PVAC.

Our deadline for labeling is July 15.

Can anyone help? If you can identify the artist(s) who created any of the links in this post please email Rhonda Sprague at rhondasprague@sbcglobal.net.

We would really like to credit the artist who have contributed to this amazing Link Project. Thank you for your help!

About the Pajaro Valley Arts Council (PVAC)

Our Mission Statement:

“Bringing the community together through the arts”

This is our 30th year!

The Pajaro Valley Arts Council, known as PVAC, was founded as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization in 1984 in Watsonville, California, to promote and foster cultural events in the Pajaro Valley and south Santa Cruz County. We strive to nourish the artistic resources found in our rich local cultural diversity, historical heritage, and the natural beauty of the Central Coast. We work collaboratively to develop and promote opportunities for public participation in and appreciation for the arts.

PVAC opened the gallery in 1986, and presents rotating visual art exhibition in both the gallery and satellite locations.
