CAROLE WATANABE AND THE TUESDAY ART HEAVEN PAINTERS: FROM ASHES TO BLOOMS On View: September 25 – November 1, 2018 Reception: Wednesday, September 26, 5 - 7pm
The Tuesday Art Heaven Painters are nine local artists who paint together at the colorful studio of Carole Watanabe. The artists experiment with bold color combinations, textures and lots of different tools when making art. An abundance of acrylic paintings, mixed media pieces, and mosaics, all in the theme of flowers, will be shown. The colorful blooms boldly pushing up through the ashes following the wildfires last year, provided inspiration for the show. Please come to view the art and meet the spirited painters at their reception. They will of course be wearing flowers on their heads!
