Step Up for Pastels! ~Santa Barbara

What a lovely place to have a show! ... Gallery 113 in Santa Barbara. Some of our members were able to take advantage of a wonderful opportunity to show their work in this lovely space. Have a look!

This is at the closing reception. Isn't it a great space? Our artists work was upstairs ... thus the name "Step Up for Pastels."

Rocky Surf by Lynn Simon

Some of our members, upstairs at the closing. A great group!

The gallery was in the "La Arcada Courtyard" on State Street in Santa Barbara. Such a charming area!

I've shown just a sampling of our members' work but there will be much more to come and one of the great things we have (not to boast, but it's true!) is a huge variety of styles and subject matter in the group. I am so excited to share their work!

Looking forward to our next show in Ojai, California on November 3rd! 
More information to come on that!

The purpose of art is 
washing the dust of daily life
off our souls.
