‘Wings Or Things That Fly’ opens at Arbor Gallery

‘Wings Or Things That Fly’ opens at Arbor Gallery


Things are happening this year in Arbor Gallery, from a 40th Anniversary Gala to Life Drawing classes.

Arbor Gallery changes the artwork in the gallery and the themed hallway quarterly in February, May, August and November.

On Feb. 8, the gallery opened with new artwork and the hallway themed “Wings or Things That Fly.”

In March, Arbor Gallery Artists will present their newest artwork in the MAC main gallery. A gala celebrating their 40th Anniversary will be held on March 25, from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. It is free and open to the public. The evening will include wine tasting, live musical entertainment, art exhibits, drawings and much more.

Arbor Gallery is composed of a group of almost 25 local artists and is one of the longest surviving co-op galleries in California. The artists of Arbor Gallery are Jackie Anderson, Wendy Bright, William Cornish, Laura Eckman, Leslie Frazier, John Harrell, Tonia Hemme, Carole Kamerer, Pope Lawrence, Karen McComb, Stephanie McLeod, Lynn Hock-Napoli, Ethel Nelson, Lori Nelson, Eileen Partlow, Susan Regert, Deanna Lynn Schmitz, Samuel Traina, Rose Tripp, Penny Waha and Donna Wayman-Maurer.

When the doors open on May 3, once again, new artwork will be on display in the gallery and a new theme, “Close to home” will be in the hallway. Flowers will fill the themed hallway on Aug. 2, and again, new artwork inside the gallery.

Finally, on Nov. 1, there will be new art in the gallery along with Christmas crafts and ornaments for sale. The “blue” hallway was such a success last year, so this year it will be “violet” in the hallway. The gallery serves hot spiced apple cider and goodies every weekend before Christmas in December.

Several monthly events occur each month through Arbor Gallery that are available to the public. On the third Friday of every month a gallery artist instructs a paint night called Art & Spirts. For a class fee of $35 students receive a canvas to paint and take home at the end of the evening. Light refreshments are provided.

Life drawing classes are also offered for $15 each session on the first and third Saturday of each month from noon to 2 p.m. on the third floor of the MAC.
