January 6-29: Artists relish the opportunity to break away from the norm—be different and free from the styles and traditions of realistic art. Local area artists, including Del Ray Artisans members, present in the Simply Abstract exhibit their unique compositions using a visual language of shape, form, color, and line. Some have no representational content whatsoever, while others keep one foot in reality, or somewhere in between.
Feb 3-26: Lovers will celebrate the spirit of Valentines Day throughout the month of February. This show features Del Ray Artisans (DRA) members’ interpretations of affectionate pairings in 2D and 3D mediums. Artists’ new handmade cards will also be available.
Join DRA in “Sweet Treats and Poetry” on Tuesday, February 14 at 6-8pm at the gallery. Featuring desserts and poetry! You’re invited to read a poem, either one you wrote or a favorite by another author, or just come to enjoy the readings by others. This event is free.
