Event Details

Artwork from 40 artists previously sequestered in studios since March 2020 has finally escaped into the light! You can meet the artists at an outdoor reception in their honor on Saturday, July 10 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. on the patio adjacent to the Gallery. Curators Maggie Boscoe and Bill Carmel are delighted to display this unprecedented outpouring of local talent which includes over 80 paintings, fabric art, mixed media, 3D sculpture, photographs, ceramics and turned wood.

Because the Lamorinda Arts Council reconfigured all scheduled art exhibits to be virtual until COVID-19 restrictions changed, artists scheduled from March 2020 through the present were unable to show work in a brick and mortar gallery. The Council redesigned its website so art lovers could easily view photographs and videos of exhibiting artists’ creative work during their scheduled exhibit month. Artwork from each exhibiting artist is available for purchase online. The virtual gallery turned out to be a good idea and is retained for the foreseeable future.
