The Frank Bette Center for the Arts (FBCA) will continue one of its annual traditions again this year when it celebrates the Island City in a unique photography exhibit titled Alameda on Camera.
The call for applications is open now for the show that brings together 48 photographers over 48 hours shooting in 48 different sections of Alameda. The deadline to apply is Sunday, Jan. 22. The juried competition will feature artwork using photo-based media and techniques that can earn awards in multiple categories.
The current show in the back room of the Frank Bette Center for the Arts (FBCA) is a paean to the Park Street Bridge — a fruitful dialog between visual and written art forms. When the Alameda Women Artists decided on a group project this year, they chose to focus on Park Street Bridge. They posted their images on the FBCA website and invited poets to respond to their paintings.
A ninth-grade student at Alameda Community Learning Center (ACLC), and cellist, Isabelle Brown-Lyden, will be performing at Carnegie Hall in New York on Saturday, Nov. 26. Isabelle has performed the cello twice at Carnegie Hall with third- and second-place finishes in the international competition, American Protégé.
This year Isabelle again came in second in the American Protégé competition and will perform at Carnegie Hall for the third time. She will play solo on a beautiful old Italian instrument loaned to her from Reed Yoboah Fine Violins in New York City.
