June sketch night

Denise - sketching the neighbors

We took our pencils and paper to Todos Santos Park during a Music & Market night and drew whatever was in front of us, as we listened to live music and enjoyed the friendly hustle and bustle of our community.

We also took a walk down to the aRt Cottage for an artists' reception. In addition to all the wonderful art, we got our flower fix in with a tour of the owner's lovely garden behind the gallery.

June Vega's art reception

CAA member June Vega recently hosted a reception for her art exhibit, which is on display through the end of June at the Ygnacio Valley Library in Walnut Creek.

This venue is part of our rotating gallery program - our members' artwork hangs above the books all year long!

We love artist receptions - and not just for the food and drink! It's a great time to get together with fellow artists and friends, and it's a wonderful opportunity to talk with the hosting artist about her work.

Many thanks to Annegret van Gemeren for sharing some photos of the reception!
