This Sunday, June 8, and next weekend (June 14 and 15), a number of Alameda artists are participating in the annual Pro Arts Open Studios tour.

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., residents can visit the studios and work spaces of 26 Island artists who create watercolor paintings, glass mosaics, textiles, digital art, clay prints, abstracts pieces, ceramics and other media.

Artists Richard Kane, Mi’Chelle Fredrick, Marcia Alpert and Deborah Griffin are showing their creations at Autobody Fine Art, 1517 Park St., while Bill Jarvis, Dorthy Rozman, and Frank D’Amico will be at Frank Bette Center, 1601 Paru St.

Other artists include Larry Wilson at Studio C, 1166 Park Avenue #A; Wanda Fudge at 1610 Minturn St.; Susan Laing and Margot White at 728 Santa Clara Ave.; Bonnie Randall Boller at 3239 Briggs Ave.; JaYing Wang at Artistic Home Studio, 1419 Park St.; Vicki Newcomer at 2990 Johnson Ave.; and Maureen Green at 1406 High St.

Earlier this month, the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., selected one of Randall Boller’s clay monotypes, “Evolving,” for its permanent collection. The piece was one of 117 original prints chosen by the prints and photographs division of the library.
