ARTIST’S TALK

Tuesday, December 6 from 7:00-8:00 pm

Kaethe Bealer‘s exhibition in the Downstairs Hallway Gallery will feature a series of 30 small works she has painted within a 30-day period both as a challenge and a discipline–a program initiated by Southern California Artist, Blogger, and Radio Talk Show Host Leslie Saeta.   This is an exercise and challenge to paint every day. Leslie has been facilitating this program for a number of years now with hundreds of artists all over the world participating. It is meant to be fun and get artists to paint more. Come and hear Kaethe discuss her painting techniques and her experience with this inspiring 30-day program.  Who knows?  You may want to try it too!  This event is open to the public; all are welcome.  Light refreshments will be served.  A $5 donation is suggested.
