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

Art Presence Autumn Harvest Show, October 20, 2012

Art Presence Founder Anne Brooke demonstrates Watercolor painting

I can never resist snapping a few pictures of what’s hanging in the gallery to post so people can get a taste of what the current show looks like. Yesterday’s shots suffered a bit from low lighting so I can only share a few, but there’s enough to let you know it’s WAY worth your time to stop in the Art Center to view these in person and many more beautiful works of art by our talented members! There are always at least two friendly artists there who will enjoy chatting with you and answering your questions, but who will give you space to enjoy the work of our members on your own. We love meeting new people and sharing each others art with our friends ~ Come visit us!
