The exhibition is on view July 25 to August 22. Gallery hours are 10 am to 4 pm and admission is always free. Also join us for the opening reception on Friday, July 24 from 6-8 pm.
Additionally, on August 8 from 1 to 4 pm, we’ll be hosting a Pet Expo event, complete with pet activities, a scavenger hunt, local pet friendly vendors, and more! Free to attend!
Each week the figure drawing co-op meets at Banfill-Locke. There is a nude model hired each week and attendees to the group share the model’s fee. Cost is usually about $10 per artist. Bring your drawing materials and enjoy the practice of life drawing each week.
