The Painters Place Picture Framers has hosted an art gallery since the days when Stan and Pat Painter opened it in the ’60’s, and Stan got to work his craft as a picture framer and his passion as an artist (a painter!). The current show features the landscapes and still lifes of local artist Teresa Dong. The oils are beautiful, with wonderful light and colors.
Her subject materials are Northern California landscapes, Italian seaside towns, and a variety of still lifes. My favorite is a large painting of a jumble of brightly painted dingy’s pulled up in front of colorful old Italian homes in a hilly seaside setting.
The artist’s reception is this Saturday, the 24th, from 6:00 – 8:00. It’s a great opportunity to meet the artist and learn more about her and the paintings, and have a glass of wine while you’re enjoying yourself!
