Desert Winds at Spezzano Gallery



Happy Monday, everyone! This week will be the last opportunity to view the "Desert Winds" exhibit at The Spezzano Gallery in Long Beach, California. The exhibition features some of my recent paintings along with the art of Esther Spezzano Shaw, Steve Rieman, and Nora Lousignont. It opened on Saturday the 12th of September, and the last day to see it will be this Saturday, the 26th of September. Gallery hours are Thursday and Sunday from noon to 6 pm, and Friday and Saturday from noon to 8 pm. As many of you may recall, I attended the opening reception on the 12th. Here are a few photos from the opening night.
Here is the owner of the gallery, Esther Spezzano Shaw, in front of one of her acrylic paintings.

Yours Truly:


I failed to get a photograph of Steve Rieman next to one of his sculptures, but you can see a few of his pieces in the first photograph. If you won't be able to make it to the exhibition at Spezzano, don't dismay! There will be another opportunity to see the works of all four of these artists in October, for the Art Tours. Esther Shaw and Nora Lousignont will be showing with me, while Steve Rieman will be showing at his own studio, which is well worth visiting. For more information, you are welcome to email me (karine@karineswenson.com).

You can now sign up to receive an email when I post a new entry on this blog! See my sidebar just to the left. Have a great day, all you dear blog readers.

what a beautiful gallery. each one of the artists has such a unique style. i love the mood created by the colours of your works and you look lovely.
after months of working alone in a studio, i guess its moments like this that every artist waits for.
