This exhibit features the work of member artists, Debby Koonce and Angélica Samame.

Atop Old Borges Ranch (acrylics on canvas)

Debby Koonce is a plein air painter who draws inspiration from natural settings reflecting the changing light of the day and season.  Whether painting locally or while on travel, she is inspired by vistas, architecture, quaint alleyways and park lands. Her sense of color and scale and interplay of dark and light are focused to create a feeling of realism that is heightened by imagination.

Tea time (acrylics on canvas)

Angélica Samame enjoys painting women in colorful and multifaceted ways. Angélica has found a silver lining of being quarantined: it has offered her the time and opportunity to experiment with new painting styles

Starting in November, please stop by to see our Holiday Boutique! It will feature handmade gift items created by local artists including glass items, ceramics, beautiful wooden bowls, small paintings, decorative pillows, holiday cards and jewelry!
