Show Review: 'Nothing Over $99' at the Whittier Art Gallery

by Robin Schroeder 21. January 2010 06:32
"The opening of the "Nothing Over $99.99" show was wonderful. What a great selection of colorful, interesting works. I was impressed with the variety of media. It is inspiring to visit a show to see paintings, ceramics, assemblage, jewelry and photography displayed so well. The Gallery has recently been painted and it lent a bright, clean, venue to this great show. The show will be open until January 31st., Wednesdays through Sundays, 12-5 pm." -Vicki Schramm

Liz Dorn, "Chicago St." acrylic

Show Review: 'Collaborations' at the Casita del Pueblo

by Robin Schroeder 19. January 2010 19:33
"Collaborations" the current show at Casita del Pueblo, is a colorful, high-energy display of the colaborative work of Dennis and Terry McGonagle. I was facinated with the multiple techniques used to apply acrylic paint layers to canvas. Dennis and Terry have worked together to produce works of exquisit texture and color. Very creative! - Vicki Schramm
