Lompoc Ten, a group of local artists drawn together through their love of painting, will present Jalama: Highway to the Sea at the Grossman Gallery during November.

An opening reception will be held 2-4 p.m. Nov. 10, at the Grossman Gallery in the Lompoc Library, 501 E. North Ave. The show runs Nov. 1-30 during library hours.

Each artist has painted what he or she enjoys about the journey along Jalama Road to the treasured beach at Jalama County Park.

The winding, 14-mile road connects farmland to ranches and ultimately the surfer-haven at the seashore. All along the way, there's something to draw the eye and soothe the soul.

The painters, inspired by their mutual interests, meet regularly throughout the year for art-making and discussion, meals, excursions, critiques and studio visits.

Though like-minded in their love of art, each member has his or her own style and approach to visual expression. Jalama is their second exhibiton together.

Members Vicki Anderson, Jon Arnold, Diane Atturio, Trish Campbell, Alan Freeman, Linda Gooch, Elizabeth Monks Hack, Carol Oliveira, Betsee Talavera and Ann Thompson have been interpreting the local scene and a variety of personal subjects for a number of years.

In banding together, they have found mutual inspiration and new paths of personal creativity, the full range of which will be on display in the exhibit.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
