"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

Badly water-damaged and could not be saved. A talk with Darakjy on
the recovery and restoration of the exhibit will be announced.

Tibet's struggle is far from over, and in the spirit of that
struggle, Darakjy is donating a portion of proceeds to The Tibetan
Children's Fund.

The dA Center for the Arts is at 252 S. Main St. Information:
www.dacenter.org, or contact Terry Castillo, (909) 868-8217.

The other exhibit, the works of Nancy K. Turner is at the SCA gallery.

Her use of mid-19th and early 20thcentury books, Civil War-era family
photographs, stamps, personal letters, pulp magazines and 1920s
children's puzzles evokes haunting mental windows of tenuous,
nostalgic longings.

Turner's exhibit, "Paper Trail Redux," will pull you in to your own
sense of personal and psychic frailty.

The SCA will also feature works of Brian Baltzer in "Lost, Found"
juxtaposing odd materials and applying them in seemingly commonplace
environments; and works by Meeson Pae Yang in "Interconnected," in
which materials and mechanisms are anything but organic and are
pushed to graceful forms of nature and biological function.

SCA Project Gallery is at 281 S. Thomas St. Information: www.scagallery.com.

Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center's new exhibit, "Dreams of
Oaxaca/Suenos de Oaxaca," features paintings, watercolors and prints
on loan from the "MAW" collection. Nine artists who live and work in
Oaxaca, Mexico, will display the regional art and culture of the area.

Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center is at 300 W. Second St. Information:
(909) 469-0080.

Bunny Gunner brings our own pop princess, Amy Maloof, back to the
Colony in "Shirtless with Leather Pants," a solo exhibit revealing
Maloof's keen eye for iconic America with an incredible range of
media. Amy's paintings, fabric pieces, collage and sculptures twist
sensibilities and hammer at the funny bone.

Bunny Gunner is at 266 W. Second St. Information: www.bunnygunner.com.

Pomona's Second Saturday for the month of October, maps and future
