ART SALE SET FOR SATURDAY, JUNE 11 The Catalina: The Wild Side Art Show and Sale to be held from 2 to 5 p.m., Saturday, June 11. This one-day-only event will be held at the Catalina Island Country Club---tlie legendary clubhouse for the Chicago Cubs when they held Spring Training on Catalina from 1921 through 1951. Nine nationally acclaimed plein air ("plain air") artists will display their interpretations of Catalina's rugged interior and Avalon. The painters include: Joe Paquet, Brian Stewart, Kevin Macpherson, Kenn Backhaus, John Budicin, Matt Smith, John Cosby, Don Demers alad Bye Bitney. The event is being produced by the Catalina: The Wild Side Committee, composed oftbe Con- servancy and a number of art col- lectors, including Roy Rose, noted collector and American art histo- rian, who is also on the Board of Directors for the Catalina Island Conservancy. Rose said the art show opens important opportuni- ties for the future that will go much farther than art hanging on a wall. "Proceeds from the sale will allow the Conservancy to pur- chase more original plein air paintings from these artists and others," Rose said. "Each of these painters work outdoors and on the scene that is in front of them at the moment - sunlight, fog, clouds, shadows," he said. "This makes these paintings his- torical references, created in the moment and all in the natural colors as seen by the artist." He said that as the years go by, the paintings, purchased solely with the funds raised by the sale, will be on permanent public dis- play. "This is a rare opportunity for the Conservancy to add an im- portant attraction," he said. Before you go back / to the mainland.,. take a little Catalina with you. Tlte Subscribe Today.

Early Childhood Education consists of activities and/or experiences that are intended to affect development changes in children. These programs serve children in the early years. (Infancy, toddlers , preschool age) Overall effectiveness of early childhood programs is dependent upon several factors: quality staff (education of staff), an appropriate environment (licensed facility), proper grouping practices, and consistent scheduling and parental involvement. These programs are designed to prepare children for success in school and in life. What is Child Development? Every child goes through a process called Child Development. The 5 main areas of development are (1) Social/Emotional Development: This is the child's ability to successfully interact with others, including helping themselves, self-control and self-confidence. (2) Language Development: This is the child's ability to both understand and use language to reason and organize ideas. (3) Cognitive Development: This is the child's ability to learn and solve problems, constant knowledge of patterns and relations, cause and effect. (4) Fine Motor Skills: This is the child's ability to use their hands and fingers to turn pages in a book, use a crayon to draw, or pick up small objects. (5) Gross Motor Skills: This is the child's ability to use their large muscles, holding, walking, climbing, hopping, throwing, catching, running.

Serving the  l.q/f J community for  22 years,, U() .OX;# Established by the City of Avalon - 1989 The paintings will becom.e a testament to the Conservancy's ongoing mission: to be a respon- sible steward of its lands through a balance of conservation, educa- tion and recreation. "We will be able to see how trees have grown back in the burn areas and how land that had been stripped bare by feral animals has come back," he said. Rose noted that while mists have taken their canvases and paints into nature reserves, it was never for the direct benefit of the land trust. "This will be a world- class collection for the enjoyment and educational use for anyone who loves and receives inspiration from Catalina's beautiful interior." Rose says that Catalina: The Wild Side Art Show and Sale will be similar to the former shows sponsored by the Society for the Advancement of Plein-Air Paint- ing. "SAPAP has retired from business," Rose said. "Many of the SAPAP players including Linda Salo, Barbara Crow, Bruce Fertig and myself approached the Conservancy with the idea of this benefit. We have a background of experience doing this," he added. On June 11, art will be sold at fixed prices after a half-hour "preview period" and may be pur- chased and removed at any time during the 2:30 to 5 p.m. sell- ing period. During the show, art- ists may bring out new pieces to replace paintings that have sold. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served during the event. On Friday evening , June 10, one day before the sale, there will be an exclusive preview of select works with the artists, that in- cludes a gourmet dinner at Castillo del Mar, the spectacular hillside home of Blanny Avalon Hagenah, a great-granddaughter of William and Ada Wrigley.
