    Close to the entrance to Maija Peeples-Bright's retrospective exhibit at the Blue Line Gallery in Roseville sits a small crate. It held all of the worldly goods of Maija Gergeris' family when they escaped from Latvia, which was soon to be overtaken by the Russians at the end of World War II.

    Maija Peeples-Bright's "Sheep Sheiks" illustrates the playful use of color and animal shapes that characterize much of her work.

    Peeples-Bright's "Goose Lady Godiva" from 1969.

    "Strange Lands IV" by Matt Bult is on display at the Alex Bult Gallery.

    Warren Strong was weeding in the backyard of his deceased mother's home in Fair Oaks this month when he found a small, brightly colored torso poking out of the ground. A few feet away, he found the head.

    Warren Strong holds a sculpture of a dog, one of many of his mother's clay artworks found buried in her yard after she died July 18. Barbara Strong, who was an accomplished artist in several media, taught art at Bella Vista High School and exhibited her work in area galleries.

    They say good art makes people talk. If that's the case, Michael Dinova Dean is creating art – and making heads turn – in Elk Grove.

    XXXXX xxxxx"Some people don't like art. What can I do about that?" said Dean. "What if I said I didn't like the color of that gas station over there? What should be done about that?" XXXXX xxxxx

    Renée C. Byer Michael Dinova Dean has made an old building in Elk Grove reminiscent of a colorful slice from Greece and Rome, and inside are reminders of some of art's old masters.
