Hello All,
On June 15th, 2013 from 4:00-11:00 pm Alicia Villegas and I will host "Bodies of Work" for the U.P.M.A. La Puente Art Walk. This will be the first 2 woman show for each of us and we are looking forward to sharing our work with you and the community. We are both exhibiting about 30 pieces of work so come out and enjoy our show as well as the art work in the other galleries hosting artists for the Art Walk. There will also be live performances of music, poetry and spoken word and a car show. Our Mason will be performing with the band Eye In I in our gallery space. Our work is hanging in a space that has been generously donated by Francisco Sanchez of Francisco's Halloween Shop that is located on the corner of First and Main Streets in Old Town La Puente.

Wonderful new watercolor pieces by Marty Wilson!
In the artist's own words:
'The Joshua Tree National Park has become a favorite place to visit. The Joshua trees are rather bizarre and each one tells a different story, sometimes having multiple branches and sometimes only one. '
