Lots lots of lovely people at the Los Gatos Museums Gallery’s champagne reception yesterday, including Carol Ann Graves, one of my favorite art patrons! You’d hardly know that the huge Saratoga Rotary Art Show was going on just down the way. I guess there are enough art lovers to go around. Not only that but it was Cinco de Mayo and the Sharks were playing the Canucks on home ice so we did really well in terms of turn out, not that you’re going to see that in my pictures – my crowd shots were full of backs and bags!
My paintings Full Bloom and Marin Hills, above, are on exhibit at the gallery for the next few months. I’ll be showing the rest of my oeuvre in Open Studios on the 18 & 19.
I love this – it turns out long time member watercolorist Nancy deWees, new member sculptor Deborah Gabris and l all live on the same street!
Member artist Jeanette Trurkus in front of her collaged painting with interior designer and artist Kee Jin who I just met the Los Gatos Art Association’s Spring Show where she was awarded honorable mention for her delicate drawing of an interior.
Tom Yacoe is another welcome new member to our gallery, I love the immediacy and freshness of his paintings, how he captures a seascape with minimal, confident brushstrokes.
