Two of my recent art works will be included in one of my first gallery shows of the year 2011. The exhibition is called the Best of the Best, it is at the SOCALPAPA Art Gallery in Newport Beach, CA. SOCALPAPA stands for the Southern California Plein Air Painter`s Association.
The show opens tomorrow, Wednesday January 5, 2011. Opening reception is Saturday, January 8th 4pm-6pm. Refreshments will be served. The show runs through February 27th, 2011. Hours of the gallery are Wednesday -Sunday, 1pm-5pm, some Thursdays 1pm-7pm. I hope to be in attendance for the reception, Jan 8th. Since this is an association gallery, we have sitting times to volunteer in the gallery. My sitting times are January 27th, 1-7pm and February 9th, 1-5pm. Stop by to meet with me if you have the time and are in the area. The gallery is located within the compounds of the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum, it faces the water along the boardwalk of the Fun Zone, just to the right of the carousel.
