    BOHEMIAN ART OPENS FRIDAY (4/6) at Pacific Grove Art Center.

    — The evolving exhibition, curated by Erik Nelson and Amanda Chaffin, reveals the vibrant artist communities who were separate yet enjoined through the artist’s works, home building and intellectual interests politically and socially. The works and stories of the painters, sculptors, ceramists, actors, book binders and writers are shown throughout this exhibition along with current works of the two communities, children and friends. The exhibit will continue through April 26.
    — Reception guests also may enjoy continued viewing of the two current exhibits. Viewers can soar from an aerial view as they interact with the fields and rivers and feel how perception can take on new shape and new meaning in Daniel Van Germen’s “Field of View” exhibit. Guests also may be amazed by the one-of-a-kind paper and fabric collages in the “Cutting Edge: Cloth, Paper, Scissors” exhibit by Annette Chaplin, Joy Colangelo, and Marybeth Rinehart.
    — PGAC’s “Lost Treasures” of art pieces now on sale will be open for reception visitors to search through and purchase. Many of the PGAC 17 resident studio artists will open their doors so guests can catch a glimpse of how painters, printmakers, watercolorists, fabric artists and sculptors work in their private spaces.
    — Regular hours at the Pacific Grove Art Center are Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. The unique, community-based nonprofit art venue was established in 1969. There is no charge, but donations are suggested and welcomed.
