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!
