Opening reception for Exploring New Surfaces, an exhibition curated by Agnes Field, Astoria based artist with a Master’s Degree in Studio Fine Art from New York University. The work included in this exhibit use either new materials or methods and techniques to amplify the meaning in the content of their art.  Adding or embedding new materials to the surface creates surprise, and occasionally, deeper interpretation and understanding of the subject. The exhibit will include Leah Kohlenberg and Kathy Moberg and Carmela Newstead.

Habitat lecture by naturalist and wildlife photographer Neal Maine at 6: pm.  Live music by Shirley 88.  Light bites and beverages.

“It was a thrill to have my pastel painting “Madison Symphony” receive this prestigious award at last month’s Paint the Peninsula plein air event. And to make it even more special, the buyer of the painting has donated it to the Olympic National Park. That’s a win-win!
