By From page B2 | June 13, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Three artists are completing their work for this weekend’s opening of Arts Benicia Artists in Residency, which opens Saturday.

Now in its fifth year, the program involves site-specific installation. The artists, Reenie Charriere, Joanna Kidd and Sofie Ramos, have about 2,000 square feet of space to work with. They began working May 24. The exhibit runs through June 29.

Charriere’s piece is a sculpture of three-dimensional banners and tapestries.

Kidd’s creation is random jigsaw puzzles. Visitors can participate by piecing together the larger sections.

Ramos will create a painting installation on the walls, floor and ceiling of the gallery.

A reception is planned for 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday. Family art day is from 1 to 3 p.m. June 19. The artist talk is from 1 to 3 p.m. June 21.

The gallery is at 991 Tyler St., Suite 114 in Benicia. It’s open noon to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Admission is free.
