Description

Art Show: "Latin Flair"

The community is invited to a special opening reception of “Latin Flair” on November 17th from 5-7pm. The exhibition is a solo show of exquisite photographs taken by Brian Shepard during a journey last spring to the Peruvian Amazon, Cuba, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Known for his ability to capture the warmth of human connection, Shepard will also include photographs of the landscape and wildlife seen during his travels.

One hundred percent of sales and all donations during the exhibit will benefit Art Escape’s collaboration with Living Amazon Peru.

Each spring, Art Escape sponsors a teaching artist from Sonoma who travels to the Eco-Art School in a rainforest preserve near Iquitos, Peru.

While there, an exchange of knowledge takes place – the teaching artist shares art-making skills with the local village children who in turn share their knowledge of native materials such as bark, fiber, and natural dyes. Together they create art that emphasizes the children’s connection to the forest and their desire to protect the ecology of their home through environmental conservation.

Nov 17 through Jan 3
Gallery hours are Mon-Fri, from 1-5pm.

Open Reception: Saturday November 17th, 5-7pm

Ages: All Ages

Cost: FREE ADMISSION
