We are particularly excited about our 2018 season because we have a new photographer and two new painters in the Gallery, one of whom is a new partner!
Two of our partners, Nancy and Paula, will be leaving as their partner time will be better served in other pursuits - but we will still have Nancy’s beautiful abstract work and Paula’s brilliant colors on the wall. Hopefully their new schedules will include more time for painting!
Our two new painters, Susan and Kate, both do landscape work. Kate paints en plein air with oil on board or canvas and Susan is outdoors as well with watercolor. Terrific additions to our already inspiring group. Although new to us, neither is new to painting and I think you will enjoy their pictures. Do have a look at their paintings on the website. Susan will be joining our little group as a partner, so you will see her cheery face behind our desk. We wish Nancy and Paula the best in their new directions and thank them for their contributions to Gallery 24.
Our new photographer is Scott Smith, a man with an experienced eye for sure. He will be our opening feature this year with some terrific images of vintage trucks in the landscape - a familiar but often overlooked sight. They are beautifully printed on rag paper with soft melt in your mouth color.
Our opening night will be Saturday, March 31, from 5-7 pm. Chef Barry will be in the kitchen, so you know there will be lots of tasty treats to look forward to. We are anticipating a fine turnout as the weather is warming up and it should be a perfect evening.
So just drop everything and come to Torrey for the weekend! Bring your children and your chocolate eggs and plan on an exhilarating hike or two. We are looking forward to welcoming you at Gallery 24 to our 2018 Season of Art.
