Fun with pieces

Watercolor collage workshop

Two students making beauty out of bits and pieces.

Held a watercolor collage workshop at Incredible Art Center on Friday afternoon – only a small group at the end when I took the photos of them finishing up.  They made both artworks and cards.  We’re running the same workshop again a couple times before Thanksgiving – on the 10th and the 14th – both of these at 5-7:30pm.  If you’re in the area and would like to join us, you can book through the education page on the website, or call Rick  (760) 282-5004.

Happy students

We loved it!


Incredible Art Center Grand Opening

Jeni Bate's Refractured watercolors at Incredible Art Center

I officially became ‘The girl next door’ for an evening. Actually only one of them, there were several other artists with work in the pop-up gallery.

My second gallery reception on Saturday was the Official Grand Opening at Incredible Art Center in Palm Springs.  My good friend Rick Pantele reopened his gallery in this location – next door to where he was operating when we met about 9 or 10 years ago.  He’d also had an opportunity to borrow the empty store next door for the evening, so we took great advantage of it.  I gave him a box of smaller pieces and Kevin Winger hung them in a great arrangement.
