The reception is on March 8th, Saturday from 5 to 8 pm. There will be a live blues band and I have picked out two of South Stage Cellars’ wonderful wines for your pleasure. The show runs from March 8 through April 10.

This is one of the paintings I will show, called “Wooden Bird.” There are a variety of subject matters represented in this show because I find it all very appealing. I am adding lettering to a lot of my compositions. Hope you can come! If not, come in to see the exhibit any day from 1 – 7pm and till 8pm Friday and Saturday and enjoy one of their great wines. South Stage Cellars is located on 3rd Street, take a left just off California Street, then it is on your left. Anne
