Remembrance Show

This will be to bring artworks from your family, or artists you remember from the past and display them at the gallery. 

I know many of you have friends or family that have passed on to their reward but have left beautiful pieces of art behind. 

In the spirit of Dia De Los Muertos, honor their memory by bringing in their art to be  displayed as we remember their friendship as well as their talent. 

The reception for this show will be October 29th from 6:00-8:00

More about the remembrance show is on the Calendar

Opportunity to support the art league by purchasing little rubber ducks to float down the Guadalupe and hopefully win a large prize! 

Regardless, for each duck purchased by you, our organization will receive $1.00. Our goal this year is $500.

Last year we received a check from the symphony for $250 which was wonderful!
